Sound event localization and detection (SELD) is the combined task of identifying the temporal onset and offset of a sound event, tracking the spatial location when active, and further associating a textual label describing the sound event. Our work on SELD was recently published in the reputed journal of selected topics in signal processing (JSTSP). The proposed method was compared with two sound event detection, three direction-of-arrival estimations, and one SELD baselines. The results showed that the proposed method is generic and applicable to any array structures, robust to unseen DOA values, reverberation, and low SNR scenarios. All the datasets used for evaluation and the code has been publicly released to support open research.
