Journal Club

Fall 2015 meeting time is: Wed 3-5PM, 2369 BI.

The papers we read are either at: Private, papers
A list of papers from 2010 review can be found at: Journal Papers for Review

Goals: The Jol club is intended to be a general learning experience for everyone. You cant (shouldnt) just be an expert in your personal research area. You need to have a wider perspective. We work on all things related to human communication, including but not limited to:Speech perception, cochlear function, neural processing, transducer design, acoustics of the middle ear, hearing aid signal processing, speech signal processing, speech recognition (but not ASR systems), speech coding.
