Dear Colleagues,

We would like to let you know that the paper submission deadline for ACM
IASA 2022 has been extended to May 06, 2022. We enthusiastically look
forward to your submissions on advancements in acoustic sensing, systems,
and applications. Our sincere apologies if you receive multiple copies of
this message.

The 1st ACM International Workshop on Intelligent Acoustic Systems and
Applications (IASA 2022) will be held late June or early July 2022,
co-located with ACM MobiSys 2022 in Portland, Oregon, USA.

IASA 2022 Website: http://intelligent-acoustics.org/

Paper Submission: https://iasa2022.hotcrp.com

Paper Submission and Important Dates


   Paper Submission: May 06, 2022, AOE.

   Notification of Acceptance: May 16, 2022, AOE.

   Camera Ready Deadline: May 28, 2022, AOE.

We solicit two types of original submissions:


   Regular papers (6 pages)

   Challenge papers (4 pages)

Explanations of the intent for each paper type and detailed submission
guidelines are found below.

Scope of the Workshop

Among the five human senses, we most heavily rely on sound and vision in
our everyday lives. Advances in computer vision have profoundly impacted
our daily lives and greatly bridged the gap between human and machine
intelligence. However, without exploiting the rich information about the
activities, events, and environment around us embedded in audio, it is not
possible to fully unleash the potential of machine intelligence. Though
many physical characteristics of acoustics have been explored, it has been
rarely explored with the lens of pervasive sensing modality in mobile and
intelligent systems. Audio presents numerous opportunities, including – (1)
reduced power consumption and computational requirements; (2) higher
omnidirectional coverage; (3) more susceptibility to physical obstruction;
(4) cheaper and smaller sensors; and (5) better privacy preservation.
Acoustic intelligence will enable low-power, low-cost, real-time,
hands-free, and more interactive communication between machines, humans,
and the environment. This workshop aims to push the boundaries of machine
intelligence by exploring the sensing, communication, system
implementation, algorithm design, and applications of intelligent acoustic

IASA welcomes contributions in all aspects of acoustic sensing, systems,
and applications, including – mobile and wearable sensing or communication
utilizing sound, vibration, ultrasound, and infrasound, algorithms in
acoustic intelligence, security, and privacy utilizing acoustics, and data
or deployment experiences.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:


   Acoustic mobile applications and embedded systems

   Novel acoustic sensors

   Innovative acoustic sensing wearables, devices, and platforms

   Novel software architectures for audio processing

   Authentication and verification with audio

   Privacy preservation of continuous listening devices

   New acoustic features for information extraction

   Audio augmented reality, AR/VR/Immersive reality applications of acoustic

   Audio synthesis

   Sound localization, denoising, and separation

   Resource-efficient machine learning and artificial intelligence using
   acoustic signals

   Multi-modal sensing and learning where acoustic modality enhances or
   gets enhanced by other sensing modalities

   Audio + X; where X = edge computing, localization, battery-less, deep
   learning, robotics, etc

   Multi-task learning leveraging wearables with microphones

   Acoustic passive sensing support for vehicular and mobile robotic systems

   Acoustic sensing in miniaturized aerial devices

   Communication with audible sounds, ultra-sounds, infra-sound, and

   Quality-aware audio data collection with earables and wearables

   Health and wellbeing applications utilizing acoustic signals

   Emerging applications in earables based on audio signals

In addition to the research papers, we also invite “Challenge Papers” that
present revolutionary new ideas that challenge existing assumptions
prevalent among acoustic signal processing, machine learning, and the
mobile systems community in general. These “challenge papers” should
provide stimulating ideas that may open up exciting avenues and/or
influence the direction of future intelligent acoustic research. An
exhaustive evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary for this
category; instead, insight and in-depth understanding of the issues are

Submission Guidelines

We invite original research papers that have not been previously published
and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Submitted
papers should be no longer than six pages for research papers and four
pages for challenge papers (including references and appendices). Your
submission must use a 10pt font (or larger) and be correctly formatted for
printing on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper. Paper text blocks must follow
ACM guidelines: double-column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space
between columns and single-spaced. The title of challenge papers must bear
a "Challenge:" prefix.

Papers are to be submitted at https://iasa2022.hotcrp.com

All accepted papers will be published as part of the ACM proceedings.
