Biography

  • Nobutaka Ono received his B.E., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematical Engineering and Information Physics from The University of Tokyo, Japan, in 1996, 1998, 2001, respectively.
    He started to work with The University of Tokyo as a research associate in Apr. 2011, and became a lecturer in Apr. 2005. He moved to the National Institute of Informatics, Japan, as an associate professor in Apr. 2011 and became a professor in Sep. 2017. He moved to Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan, in Oct. 2017. His research interests include acoustic signal processing, especially microphone array processing, source localization and separation, machine learning, and optimization algorithms. He is the author or co-author of more than 280 articles in international journal papers and peer-reviewed conference proceedings. He was a tutorial speaker at ISMIR 2010 and ICASSP 2018.
    Dr. Ono is a senior member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, a member of the Acoustical Society of Japan (ASJ), the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communications Engineers (IEICE), the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), and the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) in Japan. He was a special session chair in EUSIPCO 2013, 2015, and every year since 2017, a Chair of the Signal Separation Evaluation Campaign (SiSEC) evaluation committee in 2013 and 2015, a Technical Program Chair of IWAENC 2018, a General Chair of the DCASE 2020 workshop, and a Member of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing (AASP) Technical Committee from 2014 to 2019. He served as Associate Editor to the IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing from 2012 to 2015, and currently Vice Chair to the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Tokyo Joint Chapter. He received the Awaya Award from ASJ in 2007, the Igarashi Award at the Sensor Symposium from IEEJ in 2004, the best paper award at IEEE ISIE in 2008, the measurement division best paper award from SICE in 2013, the best paper award in IEEE IS3C in 2014, the excellent paper award in IIHMSP in 2014, the unsupervised learning ICA pioneer award from SPIE.DSS in 2015, the Sato Paper Award from ASJ in 2000 and 2018, two TAF Telecom System Technology Awards in 2018, and the best paper award in APSIPA ASC in 2018.
