imgNew York, NY (June 6, 2014)—The AES 54th International Conference on Audio Forensics will take place June 12-14, 2014, at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury in London, offering researchers and practitioners an opportunity to exchange ideas and foster new approaches to address challenges that are evolving every day in the industry.

Dedicated to exploring techniques, technologies and advancements in the field of Audio Forensics, the conference will provide a platform for sharing research related to the forensic application of speech/signal processing, acoustical analyses, audio authentication and the examination of methodologies and best practices. Chairpersons for this conference are Mark Huckvale and Jeff M. Smith.

Opening ceremonies will feature a special keynote speech entitled “Cognitive Bias in the Interpretation of Forensic Evidence,” given by esteemed cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Itiel Dror.

Three full days of sessions include Tutorials and Papers on a host of related subjects covering a variety of Audio Forensic topics. Tutorials will include “Automatic Speaker Recognition with Degraded and Enhanced Speech,” “Dereverberation Algorithms in a Nutshell - a Signal Processing Introduction,” “Digital Audio Authenticity” and “Speech Intelligibility.” Each day will also include multiple paper presentation sessions on topics including Forensic Speaker Comparison, Reverberation and Room Acoustics, Audio Authenticity, Speech Enhancement and Intelligibility, Forensic Musicology and Gunshot Analysis.  

”We are really pleased with the growth and development of our Audio Forensics-related programs and events over the past decade,” said AES Executive Director Bob Moses. “For the audio engineering community, these forensic specialists continue to push the boundaries of our understanding of sound in our everyday lives. Some of the most important recordings are ones that were never intended to be captured or that take place under unimaginable circumstances. The AES and its sponsors are dedicated to promoting the science and technologies that make audio forensics work so valuable to us all.”
