Struktuierte Sitzung "Speech and Audio Quality" auf der DAGA 2017 in Kiel
Sebastian Möller organizes together with Alexander Raake, Janto Skowronek and Stephan Werner from TU Ilmenau a Structured Session at the Annual Meeting of the German Acoustics Association (DAGA 2017). The perceptual and instrumental quality evaluation of systems is a key aspect in ensuring technical functionality and user acceptance. Example challenges lie in the complete understanding of the many technical and perceptual aspects contributing to quality and the inclusion of new technologies into existing assessment frameworks. Focussing on speech and audio systems, the session's purpose is to present recent research in this field by reporting on theoretical or empirical work. The range of considered systems may cover for example telecommunication technology, audio reproduction systems, as well as other application fields of speech and audio technology.
