Dear all,

Today we are announcing a new challenge in sound detection: "Few-shot
bioacoustic event detection", just launched as a part of the DCASE 2021

** The core idea: given only 5 examples of an animal call, can a
system reliably detect that call type? **

Thanks to many collaborators, we publish new datasets, source code for 2
baseline systems (template matching and deep learning), and full
information at:


* 1st March: tasks and training data released
* 1st June: evaluation data released
* 15th June: deadline for submissions
* 1st July: challenge results

Please forward this to your students, colleagues - and anyone who might
be able to help in the mission to create reliable detection of animal

Best wishes,
Dan Stowell
on behalf of the organising team
