The AIM 2021 cohort will be organising the Digital Music Research Network (DMRN) 2022 workshop on 20th December 2022. The workshop is hosted at QMUL on an annual basis by the Centre for Digital Music and aims to promote research in Digital Music by bringing together researchers from academia and industry in electronics engineering, computer science, and music.

The workshop will include a keynote talk by Dr. Sander Dieleman on generative modelling and iterative refinement. Submission of abstracts for talks or posters are open until 20th November.

If you are a possible AIM CDT 2023 applicant, you are welcome to come and talk to us on the event (contact us for registration). For more details, please refer to the relevant website .

AIM at DCASE 2022

On 3-4 November, AIM PhD student Shubhr Singh will participate at the 7th Workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events (DCASE 2022). The workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers working on computational analysis of sound events and scene analysis to present and discuss their results, and is organised in conjunction with the DCASE 2022 Challenge. He was involved in the organisation of the DCASE 2021 & 2022 Challenge task on Few-shot Bioacoustic Event Detection and was responsible for designing the deep learning baseline of the task along with task webpage management. The task will be presented in challenge highlight and general track spotlight session on Thursday, 3rd November, 2022 at 9:10 & 9:40 AM respectively. For more details on the task, kindly refer to the following paper:

See you all at DCASE!

AIM DAFx 2022 best paper award

The International Conference on Digital Audio Effects (DAFx) 2022 took place in Vienna, 6th-10th September 2022.

AIM PhD student Cyrus Vahidi published and presented Differentiable Time-Frequency Scattering on GPU, which received a best paper award.

This work was conducted during a visit to AIM academic partner, l’Equipe SIMS, LS2N (CNRS, France), in collaboration with Kymatio.

Kymatio is an open-source Python package for wavelet scattering and deep learning. Kymatio 2022, a two-day international workshop, took place in Nantes in May 2022. Kymatio 2023 will be announced in the coming months.
