Participants of the LOCATA Challenge should send a zip-file with their results to the challenge organizers via a download link for the file transfer platform WeTransfer. The zip-file should contain a directory with the results in the form of txt-files as specified in the LOCATA documentation (Sec. 6). In addition, the zip-file needs to contain an Excel file or csv-file with further information about the challenge submission. Participants can submit results for a single or multiple challenge tasks as well as results for different algorithms. The submission deadline for the LOCATA Challenge is August 1, 2018 (12:00 pm CEST). The challenge results will be announced at the LOCATA satellite workshop during IWAENC 2018.
Challenge participants need to submit a paper about their submission to the challenge organizers by August 15, 2018 (12:00 pm CEST). The paper should contain a description of the algorithm(s) used for the submission and, ideally, evaluation results obtained by the LOCATA development database. A Word and Latex paper template is provided here. Papers submitted to the LOCATA challenge will be published on arXiv in the proceedings of the IEEE-AASP LOCATA Challenge. Challenge participants are highly encouraged to present their papers at the LOCATA workshop to be held as satellite event at IWAENC 2018 in Tokyo (Sept. 17-20, 2018).
