The members of the organizing committee are pleased to welcome you to the official IEEE Workshop on Applications of Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics (WASPAA) website. The next WASPAA will be held from October 17th to October 20th 2021 simultaneously online and at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, U.S.A. The WASPAA meeting is a traditional event supported by the Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The first WASPAA meeting was convened in 1986 and since 1989 it has been held every other year. This two-and-a-half day workshop is devoted to reviewing the current state of the art as well as recent advances in signal processing with emphasis on its applications to audio and acoustics. It brings together researchers and practitioners from universities and industry. Mohonk Mountain House is in the Shawangunk Mountain region of New York, an area known for its outstanding beauty. The early autumn, when foliage is near peak, is an especially attractive time for hiking and other outdoor activities. The hotel is on the shore of Mohonk Lake (elevation 1253 feet), about 90 miles north of New York City. It is a popular destination for people escaping the city to enjoy the hilly and forested surroundings.
