AudioXD: Audio Across Domains, Aug 1-2

Monday, August 01, 2022

AudioXD: Audio Across Domains is a cross-disciplinary meeting of audio data scientists that will give professionals from all audio-related research fields the opportunity to connect, share ideas, and develop collaborations. This first AudioXD meeting is a collaborative effort of the Kitzes Lab at the University of Pittsburgh, the Academic Data Science Alliance (ADSA), and the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), with financial support generously provided by ADSA and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The event will be hosted at the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA, and will be completely in person.

The stated goals of this cross-domain meeting are to 1) Create new interpersonal connections between attendees, and to 2) Identify common research themes, needs, and pain points that could form the basis for new research collaborations. To achieve these goals, the program will be split between rapid-fire knowledge sharing (lightning talks highlighting expertise and challenges across disciplines), unstructured networking (discussion sessions to develop connections and partnerships), and small-group ideation sessions for participants to share new cross-disciplinary ideas.
