Mirco Ravanelli was awarded the IBM Best Student Paper Award at the ICASSP Conference in New Orleans (USA), for the joint FBK-Univ. of Montreal paper

"A network of deep neural networks for distant speech recognition"

by Mirco Ravanelli, Philemon Brakel, Maurizio Omologo, Yoshua Bengio.


The paper “On-line cross-modal adaptation for audio-visual person identification with wearable cameras”, authored by Alessio Brutti and Andrea Cavallaro, has been accepted in the IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems.


The following papers have been accepted to be presented at Interspeech 2016:

  • A Phase-Based Time-Frequency masking for multi-channel speech enhancement in domestic environments
    Alessio Brutti, Antigoni Tsiami, Athanasios Katsamanis and Petros Maragos
  • Channel Selection for Distant Speech Recognition Exploiting Cepstral Distance
    Cristina Guerrero, Georgina Tryfou and Maurizio Omologo
  • Realistic multi-microphone data simulation for distant speech recognition
