ACE Challenge update

We have now received camera-ready papers from the participating teams in the ACE Challenge, and we are looking forward to the satellite workshop during WASPAA 18-21 October 2015.

We are also working on making the full ACE Corpus including the challenge datasets, anechoic speech, acoustic impulse responses, and noises used to create them widely available.

We hope to host the following regular WASPAA papers and ACE proceedings papers at the workshop:
