|In the beginning was
the questionnaire like that of ITU- T P. 82 and many people that filled them in again and
again during subjective listening tests. Several algorithms were standardized to overcome
obvious disadvantages of listening tests and to enable automated, repeatable, fast and
reliable measurements in this area.
The aim of the On- line Workshop is to discuss the
recent developments in theoretical and practical aspects of measurement of speech and
audio transmission quality in both fixed and mobile telecommunication networks. The
organizers expect this Workshop to provide participants with suitable opportunity to
exchange information and ideas about their research activity. This On- line Workshop will
be organized and held using World Wide Web technology only.
Internet is being used by professionals in all walks of life to exchange information,
documents and interactively participates in discussions with fellow professionals and
peers worldwide. This new communication paradigm is disintegrating the boundaries that
have, traditionally, existed because of space, distance, time and cultural differences.
These facts seem to be good reasons for arranging on- line WWW Workshop. Incomparable
quickness of information exchange and no travelling and accommodation expenses are other
advantages of on- line conferences and workshops on Internet.
MESAQIN 2003 is a
combined event that includes on-line Internet workshop (free participation) and conference
meeting in Prague (registration fee required). Workshop Proceedings (both printed and
CD-ROM) will be distributed for its own costs to those interested.
