Special Issue "Audio Signal Processing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2016)
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Audio signal processing is a highly active research field where digital signal processing theory meets human sound perception and real-time programming requirements. It has a wide range of applications in computers, gaming, and music technology, to name a few of the largest areas. Successful applications include for example perceptual audio coding, digital music synthesizers, and music recognition software. The fact that music is now often listened to using headphones from a mobile device leads to new problems related to background noise control and signal enhancement. Developments in processor technology, such as parallel computing, are changing the way signal-processing algorithms are designed for audio.
In this Special Issue we want to address recent advances in the following topics:
- Audio signal analysis
- Music information retrieval
- Enhancement and restoration of audio
- Audio equalization and filtering
- Audio effects processing
- Sound synthesis and modeling
- Audio coding
- Sound capture and noise control
- Sound source separation
- Room acoustics and spatial audio
- Signal processing for headphones and loudspeakers
- High-performance computing in audio
Submissions are invited for both original research and review articles. Additionally, invited papers based on excellent contributions to recent conferences in this field will be included in this Special Issue. It is hoped that this collection of high-quality works in audio signal processing will serve as an inspiration for future research in this field.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
