Acoustic Signal Processing for Next-Generation Multichannel Human/Machine Interfaces
University of Erlangen-Nuremberg –
The acoustic interface for future multimedia and communication terminals should be hands-free and as natural as possible, which implies that the user should be free to move and and should not need to wear any devices. For digital signal processing this poses major challenges both for signal acquisition and reproduction, which reach far beyond the current state of the technology.
For ideal acquisition of an acoustic source signal in noisy and reverberant environments, we need to compensate acoustic echoes, suppress noise and interferences and we would like to dereverberate the desired source signal.
On the other hand, for a perfect reproduction of real or virtual acoustic scenes we need to create desired sound signals at the listeners ears, while at the same time we have to remove undesired reverberance and to suppress local noise.
In this talk we will briefly analyze the fundamental problems for signal processing in the framework of MIMO (multiple input – multiple output) systems and discuss current solutions.
In accordance with ongoing research we emphasize nonlinear and multichannel acoustic echo cancellation, as well as microphone array signal processing for beamforming, interference suppression, blind source separation, and source localization.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
