*ELRA-S0268 UPC-TALP database of isolated meeting-room acoustic events:This database has been produced within the CHIL Project (Computers in the Human Interaction Loop), in the framework of an Integrated Project (IP 506909) under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme. It contains a set of isolated acoustic events that occur in a meeting room environment and that were recorded for the CHIL Acoustic Event Detection (AED) task. The database can be used as a training material for AED technologies as well as for testing AED algorithms in quiet environments without temporal sound overlapping. Approximately 60 sounds per sound class were recorded. Ten people (5 men and 5 women) participated to three sessions. During each session a person had to produce a complete set of sounds two times.
