The 16th International Workshop on Acoustic Signal Enhancement (IWAENC) will be held at Hitotsubashi Hall in Tokyo, Japan, on September 17 – 20, 2018. 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 four-day program consists of oral and poster presentations, keynote talks, and demonstrations.

We look forward to welcoming you to IWAENC 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.
