This season, I'm lead organiser for two special conference sessions on machine listening for bird/animal sound: EUSIPCO 2017 in Kos, Greece, and IBAC 2017 in Haridwar, India. I'm very happy to see the diverse selection of work that has been accepted for presentation - the diversity of the research itself, yes, but also the diversity of research groups and countries from which the work comes.
The official programmes haven't been announced yet, but as a sneak preview here are the titles of the accepted submissions, so you can see just how lively this research area has become!
A two-step bird species classification approach using silence durations in song bouts
Automated Assessment of Bird Vocalisation Activity
Deep convolutional networks for avian flight call detection
Estimating animal acoustic diversity in tropical environments using unsupervised multiresolution analysis
JSI sound: a machine-learning tool in Orange for classification of diverse biosounds

Please note: this is a PREVIEW - sometimes papers get withdrawn or plans change, so these lists should be considered provisional for now.
