This workshop is dedicated to the memory of Steven L. Grant for his exceptional contributions to the echo cancellation problem.


The 15th International Workshop on Acoustic Signal Enhancement (IWAENC) will be held at Tang Dynasty West Market Hotel in Xi’an, China, on Sept. 13 - 16, 2016. IWAENC was established in 1993, originally as the International Workshop on Acoustic Echo and Noise Control (this is how the abbreviation IWAENC came into use). It is the leading workshop in the signal processing community addressing theoretical and technical issues related to acoustic and speech signal acquisition and processing. The three-day program consists of oral and poster presentations, keynote talks, and demonstrations.

We look forward to welcoming you to IWAENC 2016 in Xi’an, China.
