CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTER CONTRIBUTIONS

 

 

Book Title: Speech, Audio, Image and Biomedical Signal Processing using Neural Networks

 

Editors: Dr. Bhanu Prasad1 and Dr. S. R. Mahadeva Prasanna2

 

 

Publisher: Springer-Verlag, Germany

 

Year of Publication: 2007

 

 

BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION

 

 

Neural networks are being used for processing speech, audio, image and biomedical signals for many years. Some of the applications in speech processing where neural networks are extensively used include speech recognition, speaker recognition, speech enhancement, speech coding and speech synthesis. In audio processing, neural networks are used for speech/music classification, audio classification and audio indexing and retrieval. Edge extraction, texture classification, face recognition, character recognition, finger print identification, image enhancement and image coding are some of the applications of neural networks in image processing. Neural networks are also used for the identification of biomedical signals, different diseases, medical image processing and ECG signal processing. The articles related to the applications of neural networks in speech, audio, image and biomedical signal processing are spread in the literature across different journals, conference proceedings and books. The objective of this book is to provide a common platform for all the researchers working in the above mentioned areas to consolidate their research findings in the form of book chapters. Review articles on the usefulness of neural networks in the above mentioned signal processing areas are also planned to be included in this book. The proposed book is aimed to serve the research community mainly in the following ways:

*	The reader is equipped with the basics of signal processing like a course on digital signal processing and is interested in pursuing a research career in the application areas of signal processing. Articles on the fundamentals of speech, audio, image and biomedical signal processing and also neural networks will provide the necessary background for the beginner to start research work in these areas.
*	The reader has completed first courses in one of the above mentioned signal processing areas say speech processing and neural networks and is curious to know how to use neural network models in some of the tasks like speech recognition, speaker recognition and so on. For such a reader this book will be a good starting point since information about the applications of neural networks for these tasks and also rich literature related to them will be present.
*	The reader has used neural network models in one of the signal processing areas say speech processing and would like to know how they are and can be used in other signal processing areas like audio, image and biomedical signals. For such a reader this book will be a good source where applications of neural networks for processing different types of signals can be found.

 

 

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

 

The prospective authors who are working in one or more of the above mentioned areas can email an extended abstract of 1500-2000 words describing the scope of the work that will be included in their proposed chapters. Since it is proposed to conduct a blind review of the submitted abstracts, it is strongly suggested not to reveal their identity in any form. The abstract needs to be submitted in WORD/PDF format and should contain only chapter title and text of abstract without any affiliation details. The author details including the affiliations should be included within the body of the email. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be intimated by email.
