DCASE2023 Workshop, Call for Tutorials

Workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events
20-22 September 2023, Tampere, Finland

The 8th Workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events, DCASE 2023, will be held in Tampere on 20-22 September. We aim to bring together researchers from many different universities and companies with an interest in the topic, and provide the opportunity for scientific exchange of ideas and opinions.

This year, the DCASE Workshop welcomes proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the main event. We are seeking presenters for two short tutorials of 1,5 hours, to take place on Wednesday 20th of September, 14:00 - 17:30.

To make the conference attractive to student participants and newcomers into the field, in addition to the standard tutorial suggestions we particularly welcome tutorial proposals which either cover fundamental and introductory topics in DCASE, or present an informative coverage of current DCASE topics in a manner that is targeted towards people new to the field.
