Welcome to the main page for community-based Signal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC 2018).

SiSEC aims to be a large-scale regular campaign building upon the experience of previous evaluation campaigns (SASSEC, SiSEC2008, SiSEC2010, SiSEC2011, SiSEC2013, SiSEC2015 and SiSEC2016) to compare performance of source separation systems on the same data and metrics. The unique aspect of this campaign is that it is not a competition but a scientific evaluation from which we can draw rigorous scientific conclusions.

It will be held in conjunction with the LVA/ICA 2018 conference, where participants will be able to present their approach through a special session.
