Welcome to Topics in Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing (2021)

Description: Audio and acoustic signal processing deals with the science and practice of signal processing for signals of an acoustic origin. As such, it is the discipline behind such marvels of mordern society as hearing aids, streaming services, smart phones, and smart speakers. The course will cover recent advances within the field,  including including robust acoustic beamforming and localization, speech enhancement, sound zones, noise statistics estimation, wireless acoustic sensor networks, active noise cancellation, and robot audition. These are based on methodological developments wherein disciplines such as machine learning and convex optimization are integrated into signal processing. The course will feature a number of lectures and hands-on exercises.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
