The 6th International Workshop on Detection, Classification, Localization, and Density Estimation (DCLDE) of Marine Mammals using Passive Acoustics was held from 12 – 15 June, 2013 at the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
The biennial DCLDE Workshops are intended for exchanging information that advances our understanding of acoustic methods to detect, classify, locate, track, count, and monitor marine mammals in their natural environment. The goal is to encourage interdisciplinary approaches to solve real-world problems related to the study of marine mammals and the effects of human activities.
As with previous workshops, a common data set has been provided which will allow participants to directly compare algorithms and methodologies. While delegates are encouraged to work with the workshop dataset, contributions using other data will also be accepted.
