Dear all,

This is a reminder that abstracts for the 6th International Workshop on
Detection, Classification, Localization & Density Estimation (DCL&DE) of
Marine Mammals using Passive Acoustics are due by Sunday 17th March.  The
meeting will be held in St Andrews, Scotland, from 12 - 15 June 2013, with
additional workshops on 11 June. The original call for abstracts is below.

We hope to see you in Scotland in June.

With best wishes,

Danielle Harris

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to submit abstracts to The 6th International Workshop on
Detection, Classification, Localization, & Density Estimation (DCL&DE) of
Marine Mammals using Passive Acoustics, to be held in St Andrews, Scotland 12 -
15 June 2013, with additional workshops on 11 June.

In line with previous workshops, we have prepared an annotated dataset of sounds
which participants are encouraged to use in order that different detection
algorithms can be effectively compared. For details of the workshop dataset,
click here<http://soi.st-andrews.ac.uk/dclde2013/workshopdataset.html>. We will
however be happy to consider abstracts tackling any aspect of Detection,
Classification, Localisation and Density Estimation of marine mammals using
passive acoustics.

Abstracts should be submitted using the form provided on the workshop web site
(http://soi.st-andrews.ac.uk/dclde2013) and emailed direct to the organisers at
dcldeworkshop at st-andrews.ac.uk .

The primary purpose of the DCL workshops is to advance the development of
algorithms and analytical techniques for the Detection, Classification,
Localisation and Density Estimation of marine mammals.

Abstracts will be assessed using the following criteria:

1.       Relevance to the topics of DCL&DE.

2.       Presentation of advances in the field.

3.       Presentation of a clear strategy for assessing algorithm performance.
Participants will be encouraged to participate in open discussions of how and
why their algorithms work as they do and the factors which limit or might
enhance their performance.

While there will still be specific sessions at the workshop dedicated to Density
Estimation, these sessions will no longer all be on the last day - for the
simple reason that we feel that those of us who are developing detection and
classification algorithms need to be fully aware of how those detections might
be used and should not be given the opportunity of going home early and missing
these vital talks !

On the abstract submission form you will be asked to express a preference for
poster or oral presentation. While we will endeavour to meet each person's
preference for poster or oral presentation, space and time constraints mean
that this may not always be possible. Posters will be available for viewing
throughout the four days of the workshop in the foyer area we'll be using for
coffee and lunch each day.

Deadlines
Abstracts should be submitted by Sunday 17 March.
Authors will be notified of abstract acceptance by the end of April.

Workshop Registration
Online workshop registration is available at
