54th Conference on Audio Forensics

Del 12 al 14 de junio de 2014 tendrá lugar en Londres (en el Hotel Holiday Inn Bloomsbury)  la 54a Conferencia Internacional de Audio Forense.

La 54a Conferencia Internacional de Audio Forense (54th Conference on Audio Forensics) de AES  se dedica a explorar los avances en el campo de audio forense, proporcionando una plataforma para la investigación relacionada con la aplicación forense de procesamiento de voz y de señal, análisis acústico, la autenticación de audio, y el examen de las metodologías y de las mejores prácticas. Esta es la quinta conferencia AES dedicada a los avances técnicos y enfoques prácticos en vías de desarrollo en el campo de Audio Forense (conferencias pasadas: 2005200820102012).

Con la creciente asistencia en ediciones anteriores, esta conferencia se ha convertido en el centro neurálgico para los investigadores y profesionales, para intercambiar ideas y fomentar nuevos enfoques para hacer frente a los problemas que se están desarrollando todos los días. El programa de la conferencia incluirá presentaciones y discusiones de aspectos candentes, así como talleres sobre temas relacionados con las actividades de audio forense.

Los coordinadores de la organización son los siguientes:

Papers Co-Chair: Mike Brookes, Imperial College London
Papers Co-Chair: Durand Begault, Audio Forensic Center, Charles M. Salter Assoc.
Workshops Chair: Catalin Grigoras, National Center for Media Forensics
