It is our pleasure to announce that CLAM [1] has won the 2006 ACM Open
Source Multimedia Contest.

CLAM is an open-source C++ framework for doing research and
application development in the audio and music domain. It offers a
conceptual model for audio systems, a repository of processing
algorithms, data types, and tools , as well as applications for
analysis, synthesis and processing of audio signals. These features can
be exploited to build cross-platform applications or to build rapid

CLAM is coordinated by Xavier Amatriain at the University of California
Santa Barbara but is mostly developed at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in
Barcelona (Spain) by a team led by Pau Arumi and David Garcia. CLAM is
now being developed thanks to a grant from the STSI at the Catalan
Government (Generalitat de Catalunya).

According to the jury: "CLAM is a remarkably comprehensive system with
impressive capabilities". The award will be presented in the forthcoming
ACM Multimedia Conference [2].

The ACM Open Source Competition is a prestigious international
contest that is now in its third year. Last year, for instance, the
award was given to the OpenVidia library for GPU accelerated Computer
Vision [3].

This award culminates 5 years of ongoing research and development and
the authors wish to thank all the past developers as well as all of our
users and people who have given support throughout these years.

The CLAM development team.
