SpiN2022 – 13th Speech in Noise Workshop – Virtual Conference
Hi everyone, we’re happy to announce that the 13th Speech in Noise Workshop will virtually place on 20-21 January!
Talks will be shared as Zoom webinars, and poster sessions will take place in GatherTown.
You can reach out to information about the SPIN workshop, previous editions, organisation committee, and contact email below.
About the SPIN workshop
The SpiN workshop is organized every year by a European research group within the speech and hearing community, and consists of two days of talks by invited speakers (PhD students, postdocs, and principal investigators, as well as a keynote lecture) and contributed poster presentations. The aim of the meeting is to bring together young investigators and senior faculty from several European hearing-research groups to stimulate networking, discussion of research topics, and scientific collaboration in the field of speech and hearing research.
Why a workshop on speech in noise?
Speech is probably the most used method of communication. It is fast, robust, open to interaction and can be used in highly adverse conditions. Besides the content of the message, it contains additional information, such as the emotional state, size and sex of the speaker. But occasionally speech information is not transmitted properly due to interference by one or more other sources typically labelled as “noise”.
Technological progress demands a better understanding of the processes involved in the perception of speech in noise. For example, mobile telecommunications makes people communicate under far noisier conditions than the traditional landline. Contemporary hearing aids with wireless technologies allow the implementation of numerous digital signal processing strategies, creating novel opportunities to improve the speech perception for hearing-impaired listeners. A better understanding of the perception of speech in noise also appears imperative to the further development of cochlear implants. And notwithstanding progress in the field of automatic speech recognition, robustness to noise remains a challenge.
