The accepted paper is "JOINT ENTROPY-SCALABLE CODING OF AUDIO SIGNALS" by Mahmood Movassagh, Joachim Thiemann and Peter Kabal, an examination of a Huffman-coding like bit allocation that allows for scalable transmission and decoding. A key part is the joining of adjacent quantization regions which I talked about a bit in a previous post.
The rejected paper is on tonal perception applied to singing voice detection. One positive note is that ICASSP reviews in general are very thorough and useful for making improvements. I will continue working on the idea; perhaps ICASSP wasn't the best venue for that work anyways. I'm now looking at ISMIR as a better place to submit the revised paper to.
