Klaus-Robert Müller 
"Multimodal imaging, non-stationarity and brain-computer interfacing". Müller has been working with brain-computer interfaces with electroencephalography (EEG). His group has advanced the EEG BCI method with little (<10min) training using left/right imagined movement. From 200 Hz down-sampled filter they extract features based on 1) FFT-based low-pass filter, 2) band-pass 4-40 Hz AR coefficients, 3) subject-specific band-pass filter e.g., 7-14 Hz with multi-class common spatial pattens and perform artifact removal. These features are piped into a classifier. His group has collaborated with Roderick Murray-Smith on a EEG-based spelling. They apply stationary subspace analysis (SSA) to the EEG-data (Finding stationary subspaces in multivariate time series and Finding stationary brain sources in EEG data) In the leading SSA-components Müller finds signal related to loose electrodes, eye movements and muscle activity. "stationarized common spatial patterns". "Divergence framework for Common Spatial Patterns Algorithms" matlab software available from http://www.divergence-methods.org. "Multimodal source power correlation analysis" (mSPoC). Müller has worked with multimodal EEG-NIRS data. SSA splits the signal into a stationary and a non-stationary part:[1]
<math>x(t) = As(t) = [A^s A^n ] \left[ \begin{array}{c} S^s(t) \\ S^n(t) \end{array} \right]</math>

[edit] Monday sessions

Sebastian Weichwald 
"Decoding index finger position from EEG using random forests". [1]. Subjects should press keys on a numerical keyboard and the task was to decode the finger position based on EEG. The EEG-data with a total of 26819 trials was spatially filtered with a Laplacian. Extracted 8904 features and tested with leave-one-subject-out cross-validation using a random forest classifier.
Elvira Khachatryan 
"Amplitude of N400 component unaffected by lexical priming for moderately constraining sentences". 32-electrode EEG recording with BioSemi downsampled from 2048 to 256 Hz, filtering with 4th order Butterworth to 0.1 to 30 Hz, removal of eye artifacts, extracting data from 100 ms pre-onset to 1000 ms post-onset
Per Bækgaard
"In the twinkling of an eye: synchronization of EEG and eye tracking based on blink signatures": Using blinks in EEG to synchronize with eye tracking. Spontaneous closing eye: 50-70 ms while associated reopening +100 ms. There is a nice correspondence between eye blink extracted from EEG and the eye tracking systems.
Søren Bech 
"Sensory analysis - a research paradigm for linking perception and physics/signal processing". Stevens' power law. Two ways to identification for attributes: Direct elicitation method consensus vocabulary method ("RaPID", ...), individual vocabulary methods ("free-choice profiling", "repertory grid", "flash profile"). "Perceptually Optimised Sound Zones": http://iosr.surrey.ac.uk/projects/POSZ/
Bob L. Sturm 
"A closer look at deep learning neural networks with low-level spectral periodicity features" [2]. "The Latin music database": "3229 full songs singly labeld in 10 classes" (Axé, Bachata, Forró, Gaúcha, Salsa). "DeSPerF" used of the BALLROOM music dataset[2] Sturm investigates why deep learning neural network perform so well in music genre classification. He finds that the classifier is apparently critically dependent on the tempo. The BALLROOM dataset has a high statistical dependency between genre and tempo.
Hans-Peter Gasselseder 
"Those who played were listening to the music? Immersion and dynamic music in the ludonarrative". Subjective measures: EMuJoy by Nagel et al. 2007, iGEQ, MEC-SPQ, ...
Stefania Serafin 
"Sonic Interaction Design in Experimental Music, Virtual Reality, Cultural Heritage and the Automotive Industry". She has worked with "augmented threadmill" with visual-audio-haptic walking. Virtual walking: mechanical repositioning walking, (illusionary walking), walking-in-place walking. With inspiration from the parchment-skin illusion manipulated the sound associated with a pulley machine. Reconstruction with physical modeling of old audio generated instruments: Intonarumori and DREAM.
Paul Kendrick 
Automatic detection of microphone handling noise. He did a web survey on most commonly reported recording errors: Background noise, wind-induced noise, handling noise. He wants to make a machine learning model to detect, e.g., handling noise. On sound recordings he extract MFCCs and classify on whether there are handling noise in the recording with a random forest classifier. C++ code for his project is available at http://github.com/kenders2000/WindNoiseDetection An app for wind noise has also been constructed.

Jesper Steen Andersen 
Using the Echo Nest's automatically extracted music features for a musicological purpose. Looked on labelings from Echo Nest. It labels with energy, liveness, speechiness, acousticness, danceability, valence.
