Publication update

This blog has been basically been inactive since last October since being a PostDoc means that there are a whole bunch other things that I am busy with.  And of course, it was winter - that means statistically, there is always someone in the family who is sick (kids bring home every germ that is going around...).

But it is spring now!  And I have just returned from DAGA 2017 in Kiel (where we found a very nice Thai restaurant) so time to update some of my work!

First off, my colleagues in Hannover published "Customized high performance low power processor for binaural speaker localization" at ICECS 2016 in Monte Carlo, Monaco (paper on IEEE Xplore), there was the Winter plenary of Hearing4all, and at DAGA 2017, I presented "Pitch features for low-complexity online speaker tracking", and Sarina (Ph.D. student I'm co-supervising) presented "A distance measure to combine monaural and binaural auditory cues for sound source segregation", both of which can be found on my homepage.  In the pipeline is now "Real-time Implementation of a GMM-based Binaural Localization Algorithm on a VLIW-SIMD Processor" by Christopher, which has been accepted and will be presented at ICME 2017 in Hong Kong in July, and I submitted a paper ("Segregation and Linking of Speech Glimpses in Multisource Scenarios on a Hearing Aid") to EUSIPCO 2017; that one is still in review.

I was also teaching a class in the past semester ("5.04.4223 Introduction into Music Information Retrieval") which, because it's a brand new class took a crazy amount of work to prepare for - but I think the students really enjoyed it, and I saw some very good code being written for the final project.

Now back to real work (writing more papers, that is)!  (Well, there's one or two topics I'll put on the blog in the next little while, too.  Later.)

What happened to my homepage? Or: why you should read emails from your hosting provider carefully...

Having had about a million things on my plate recently (WHEN was the last time I blogged anything?), I tend to prioritize emails - and I did kinda ignore an email sent out by Atlassian in January.  It meant to inform me that the personal homepages on BitBucket were moving from to (and switching to https in the process); a redirect from Jan 23rd on, then the old link would be dead after March 1st.

I noticed this of course only when I suddenly couldn't access my homepage. D'Oh!

I have now gone though most of the blog postings here to fix all the links.  If you find any that I missed (or other dead links) please let me know in the comments! Thanks!
