Paris Workshop on Decoding of Sound and Brain

Paris, 5-6 November 2015

At the Centre Culturel Irlandais. Organized by Alain de Cheveigné, Shihab Shamma, Malcolm Slaney, Daniel Wong, Daniel Pressnitzer.
Map, Hotel des Grandes Ecoles, Hotel des Nations St Germain, Hotel St Christophe. Transportation: from the airport Charles de Gaulle - Roissy, take the RER (suburban train) to Luxembourg station (all RER trains from the airport go there). From there you can walk (don't forget the map!) to your hotel or take a cab. Alternatively you can get off at Saint Michel station and change to the metro, direction Austerlitz, to the station Cardinal Lemoine. Instructions from Gare du Nord train station and Orly airport are similar.
Ongoing sounds at our ears affect the ongoing signals in our brain. Our workshop aims at understanding how the two are related. The workshop will bring together: (a) people working on brain activity, in particular in response to sound, (b) people working on audio signal analysis, in particular long term and higher order structure, (c) experts in relevant signal processing and machine learning techniques, (d) people working on applications such as brain-computer interfaces (BCI). The aim is to explore new ideas and tools for joint analysis of sound and brain response patterns.
