Junior researcher initiative ``resources for audio source separation''

Participants : Rémi Gribonval, Laurent Benaroya, Frédéric Bimbot.

The Junior researcher initiative (Action Jeunes Chercheurs) ``Resources for audio source separation'' (Ressources pour la séparation de signaux audiophoniques) of the french GDR ISIS (CNRS) is a collaboration between the METISS project-team at IRISA, the Analysis-Synthesis group at IRCAM, Paris and the ADTS group at IRCCyN, Nantes. The initiative started in march 2002 for a duration of 18 month. Its goal was to ``identify common denominators specific to the different problems related to audio source separation, in order to propose a toolbox of numerical criteria and test signals of calibrated difficulty suited for assessing the performance of existing and future algorithms''. The workgroup released an online prototype of a database of test signals together with an evaluation toolbox. Several joint publications were published [32] [22] [31] in international conferences (ICA'03, GRETSI'03) and a paper is in preparation for submission in a journal.
