Apr. 2014  - Submitted a paper to INTERSPEECH 2014 on preliminary results of our recent work on robust speech recognition for distant-talking control of music playback devices.

Mar. 2014  - I will attend the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering Research Expo 2014 on April 17th [link]. I am looking forward to discuss the work of Prof. B. D. Rao on All-Pole Modeling of Speech accounting for Block Sparse Excitation.

Mar. 2014  - Submitted a paper to the 55th AES conference on Spatial Audio on our recent work on the perceptual evaluation of spatial sound reproduction techniques.

Mar. 2014  - "Tuning Methodology for Speech Enhancement Algorithms using a Simulated Conversational Database and Perceptual Objective Measures" was accepted for presentation at HSCMA 2014. A preprint is available in the "Conference Publications" section. See you in Nancy!

Mar. 2014  - The latest contributions from my doctoral work titled "Stable 1-norm Error Minimization Based Linear Predictors for Speech Modeling" was accepted for publications in the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Speech, Audio, and Language Processing (link). A preprint is available in the "Journal Publications" section.

Mar. 2014  - Submitted our contribution to the special session I am co-charing at EUSIPCO 2014, "Digital Audio Processing for Loudspeakers and Headphones" (link). The paper introduces a framework, named Numerical Auditory Scene Synthesis (NASS), for the simulation of spatial and timbral cues of a given sound event using an array of loudspeakers.

Mar. 2014  - Submitted a paper on our large scale tuning and optimization methodology for speech enhancement systems at HSCMA 2014.

Feb. 2014  - Submission is now open for the EUSIPCO 2014 special session Josh Atkins and I are chairing, "Digital Audio Processing for Loudspeakers and Headphones". The submission to the special session requires a password (right before the submit button). The password is "lisbon". The deadline is March 6th.

Feb. 2014  - "Robust Acoustic Echo Cancellation in the Short-Time Fourier Transform Domain Using Adaptive Crossband filters" was accepted for presentation at ICASSP 2014. A preprint is available in the "Conference Publications" section. See you in Florence!

Jan. 2014  - Currently recruiting summer interns in the Beats Electronics DSP Research Team in Santa Monica, California. If interested, contact me for more information.

Jan. 2014  - The special session "Digital Audio Processing for Loudspeakers and Headphones" proposed at EUSIPCO 2014 was accepted as a double session with 12 contributions!

Dec. 2013  - I will attend the UCLA 2013 Annual Research Review on December 11th [link].

Dec. 2013  - I am now EURASIP Local Liaison for Southern California [link]. I will soon organize a monthly or bimonthly meeting for networking and discussing of all aspects of signal processing. Stay tuned!

Oct. 2013  - Submitted a paper on our current work on robust echo cancellation for ICASSP 2014.

Oct. 2013  - Presented our work on sparse echo cancellation at WASPAA and our work on automated tuning of noise reduction algorithm at the AES Convention and at the SANE Workshop. Preprints are available in the "Conference Publications" section.

Daniele Giacobello received his Laurea (B.Sc.) and Laurea Magistrale (M.Sc.) degrees in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2003 and 2006, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Aalborg University, Denmark, in 2010. Before joining Beats Electronics, LLC as a Senior Research Engineer, he was with the Office of the CTO at Broadcom Corporation, Irvine, CA; the Department of Electronic Systems at Aalborg University; Asahi-Kasei Corporation, Atsugi, Japan; and Siemens AG, Milan, Italy. He was also a Visiting Scholar at Delft University of Technology, University of Miami, and Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium. He is a recipient of the European Union Marie Curie Doctoral Fellowship and was awarded the “Best Information Engineering Thesis Award” by the Milan Engineers Foundation and the “Best Thesis Prize” sponsored by Accenture for his M.Sc. thesis work, both in 2006.

Dr. Giacobello’s research interests include digital signal processing theory and methods with applications to speech and audio signals, in particular sparse representation statistical modeling, coding, and recognition. He is a reviewer of the Elsevier Signal Processing Journal, the Elsevier Speech Communication Journal, the IEEE Signal Processing Letters, the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing, the IEEE Transactions on Speech, Audio, and Language Processing, the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing, and the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. He is EURASIP local liaison for Southern California and will co-chair the special session "Digital Audio Processing for Loudspeakers and Headphones" at the 22nd European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2014).
