Workshop DCLDE 2018

The 8th International Workshop on

Detection, Classification, Localization, and Density Estimation of marine mammals using passive acoustics

will take place in Paris, France, 4-8 June 2018.

Website :

The DCLDE Workshop brings together researchers and engineers from universities, research institutes, government organizations, and industry, dealing with all aspects of acoustics, signal processing, pattern recognition, mathematics, and computer sciences applied to the study of the biology, ethology and ecology of marine mammals and also their environment and the potential effects of anthropogenic activities. The goal is to provide a forum for exchange of new results obtained from the latest advances in instrumentation and from the recent methods. Also this workshop will clearly encourage interdisciplinary approaches to create more knowledge on these species.

The DCLDE Workshop will comprise a prominent series of thematic sessions of oral and poster presentations. Abstracts will be published in proceedings to be made available to all registered participants on the first day of the Workshop.

As the previous sessions of the DCLDE workshops, a challenge is offered to compare methods, algorithms, and results. This time will be awarded the team that will best detect and classify the underwater acoustic environment including sounds emitted by mysticeti and odontoceti species among other biological, natural and anthropogenic noises.
