*SECOND CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTER CONTRIBUTIONS*

* *

*SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL OCTOBER 4 2006 *

(people who already submitted their abstracts need not respond to this
email)

* *

*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.
