After the WASPAA conference I had the pleasure to attend the SANE conference, where projects related to the Northeast region of the US were presented http://www.merl.com/events/sane2013/
Gerard Roma, Waldo Nogueira and Perfecto Herrera have participated in the Challenge for Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events organized by the Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing comittee of the IEEE. One of their submitted algorithms obtained the best accuracy for the scene classification problem involving 10 different acoustic scenes. The MTG algorithm scored well above both the baseline and the other 16 submitted algorithms. The strengths of the approach lie in taking advantage of recurrence quantification analysis features computed from MFCC.
This research is presented during this week at the 2013 Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA), that is held in Mohonk Mountain House, New Paltz, NY, USA.

On Tuesday 22nd I willl be presenting the paper: Recurrence Quantification Analysis Features for Environmental Sound Recognition by Gerard Roma, Waldo Nogueira and Perfecto Herrera.
The paper has been part of the D-CASE challenge.
