During this seminar the fundamentals of audio processing and indexing will be studied. Applications in the area of speech recognition, audio synthesis and content based audio retrieval will be discussed. State of the art work on content based audio retrieval will be studied and presented by the participants.
The seminar starts with several lectures and accompanying assignments in the form of workshops; followed by a literature selection, study, and presentations by all the students; the seminar ends with final project demos / presentations.
Requirements: C, C++
Grading (6 ECTS): Presentations and Project (60% of grade). Class discussions, attendance, and workshops (40% of grade). It is necessary to be at every class and to complete every workshop. If you can not be there, you must contact Dr. E.M. Bakker before class!

During the seminar we will study state-of-the-art audio indexing methods and techniques using recent scientific publications from international journals, workshops, and conferences on content based audio retrieval.
Each student will present a recent technical paper:
During the seminar each student has to do a project related to audio processing/synthesis/indexing.
The agenda for the projects is as follows:
Every student has to maintain a project web page on which progress, documents, code, links, etc. related to the project are maintained. Here you can find an example project page. Feel free to design your own project web page though. Do not forget to mail me the link to your project page.
Note: Using your university account you can put your web-page under a directory \home\public_html.
You have electronic access to all of the listed journals by using your ULCN-account (for further details see http://www.bibliotheek.leidenuniv.nl/ ):
