- What is the optimal microphone placement for a particular recording environment?
- How do the received signals depend on the direction of arrival, in theory and in practice?
Sound scene awareness and enhancement
- What sound sources are present and where are they?
- How can we reduce background noise and/or interferers to better hear/understand a particular source?
Sound scene rendering and spatial audio perception
- How can we create compelling immersive audio experiences?
- How can we create the illusion of tangible audio sources in our local environment?
