Davide Rocchesso is a PhD candidate at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informatica, Università di Padova - Italy. He received his Electrical Engineering degree from the Università di Padova in 1992, with a dissertation on real-time physical modeling of music instruments. In 1994 and 1995, he was visiting scholar at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), Stanford University. He has been collaborating with the Centro di Sonologia Computazionale (CSC) dell'Università di Padova since 1991, as a researcher and a live-electronic designer/performer. His main interests are in audio signal processing, physical modeling, sound reverberation and spatialization, parallel algorithms. Since 1995 he has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Associazione di Informatica Musicale Italiana (AIMI).

Julius O. Smith received the B.S.E.E. degree from Rice University, Houston, TX, in 1975. He received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1978 and 1983, respectively. His Ph.D. research involved the application of digital signal processing and system identification techniques to the modeling and synthesis of the violin, clarinet, reverberant spaces, and other musical systems. From 1975 to 1977 he worked in the Signal Processing Department at ESL, Synnyvale, CA, on systems for digital communications. From 1982 to 1986 he was with the Adaptive Systems Department at Systems Control Technology, Palo Alto, CA, where he worked in the areas of adaptive filtering and spectral estimation. From 1986 to 1991 he was employed at NeXT Computer, Inc., responsible for sound, music, and signal processing software for the NeXT workstation. Since then he has been an Associate Professor at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford teaching courses in signal processing and music technology, and pursuing research in signal processing techniques applied to music and audio.
