Acoustic echo is an annoying disturbance due to the sound feedback between the loudspeaker and the microphone of terminals. Acoustic echo canceller and residual echo cancellation are widely used to reduce the echo signal. The performance of existing echo reduction systems strongly relies on the assumption that the echo path between transducers is linear.

The assumption of linearity is not hold anymore, due to the nonlinear distortions introduced by the loudspeakers and the small housing where transducers are placed. Task :. T he PhD thesis will lead research in the field of non-linear system applied for acoustic echo reduction. The foreseen tasks deal first with proper modelling of mobile phone transducers presenting non-linearity, to get a better understanding in which environment echo reduction works.

Using this model as a basis, study of performance of linear system will permit to get a good understanding on the problems brought by non-linearity. In a further step, the PhD student will develop and test non-linear algorithms coping with echo cancellation in non-linear environment.

English version The research in automatic speech processing is increasingly concerned at the treatment of large data collections, with spontaneous and conversational speech. The variability of speech alter the general performances. The dialect of the speaker is of these variability sources, who leads in alterations in terms of both the phonetic pronunciation, but also in terms of the morphology of words and prosody.

We propose to conduct a research on the automatic characterization of the dialects, in order to adapt automatic speech recognition systems: by selection of acoustic and prosodic models suited to improve performance in speaker independent recognition conditions.

The realization of such a system should be based on recent advances in the identification of the language in the exploration of phonemes modeling lattices and propose a fine modelling based on micro and macroprosody. Contacts: jerome.

The development of Multimodal User Interfaces relies on systemic research involving signal processing, pattern analysis, machine intelligence and human computer interaction.

This journal is a response to the need of common forums grouping these research communities. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:. The submission procedure and the publication schedule are described at:. More information:. Over the last few years, these connections have been made yet stronger, under the influence of several factors.

A first line of convergence relates to the shared collection and exploitation of the considerable resources that are now available to us in the domain of spoken language. These resources have come to play a major role both for phonologists and phoneticians, who endeavor to subject their theoretical hypotheses to empirical tests using large speech corpora, and for NLP specialists, whose interest in spoken language is increasing.

While these resources were first based on audio recordings of read speech, they have been progressively extended to bi- or multimodal data and to spontaneous speech in conversational interaction. Research on spoken language has thus led to the generalized utilization of a large set of tools and methods for automatic data processing and analysis: grapheme-to-phoneme converters, text-to-speech aligners, automatic segmentation of the speech signal into units of various sizes from acoustic events to conversational turns , morpho-syntactic tagging, etc.

Large-scale corpus studies in phonology and phonetics make an ever increasing use of tools that were originally developed by NLP researchers, and which range from electronic dictionaries to full-fledged automatic speech recognition systems. In this scientific context, which very much fosters the establishment of cross-disciplinary bridges around spoken language, the knowledge and resources accumulated by phonologists and phoneticians are now being put to use by NLP researchers, whether this is to build up lexical databases from speech corpora, to develop automatic speech recognition systems able to deal with regional variations in the sound pattern of a language, or to design talking-face synthesis systems in man-machine communication.

Contributions are therefore invited on the following topics:. Automatic procedures for the large-scale processing of multi-modal databases. Multi-level annotation systems. Text-to-speech systems. It has moved to an electronic mode of publication, with printing on demand. This affects in no way its reviewing and selection process.

Almost everyone is a producer and a consumer of multimedia in a world in which, for the first time, tremendous amount of contextual information is being automatically recorded by the various devices we use e.

In recent years, researchers have started making progress in effectively integrating context and content for multimedia mining and management. Integration of content and context is crucial to human-human communication and human understanding of multimedia: without context it is difficult for a human to recognize various objects, and we become easily confused if the audio-visual signals we perceive are mismatched.

For the same reasons, integration of content and context is likely to enable semi automatic content analysis and indexing methods to become more powerful in managing multimedia data. It can help narrow part of the semantic and sensory gap that is difficult or even impossible to bridge using approaches that do not explicitly consider context for semi automatic content-based analysis and indexing. The goal of this special issue is to collect cutting-edge research work in integrating content and context to make multimedia content management more effective.

The special issue will unravel the problems generally underlying these integration efforts, elaborate on the true potential of contextual information to enrich the content management tools and algorithms, discuss the dilemma of generic versus narrow-scope solutions that may result from “too much” contextual information, and provide us vision and insight from leading experts and practitioners on how to best approach the integration of context and content.

The special issue will also present the state of the art in context and content-based models, algorithms, and applications for multimedia management.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to : – Contextual metadata extraction – Models for temporal context, spatial context, imaging context e. While the papers collected through the open call are expected to sample the research efforts currently invested within the community on effectively combining contextual and content information for optimal analysis, indexing and retrieval of multimedia data, the invited papers will be selected to highlight the main problems and approaches generally underlying these efforts.

All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 independent reviewers. Invited papers will be solicited first through white papers to ensure the quality and relevance to the special issue. The accepted invited papers will be reviewed by the guest editors and expect to account for about one fourth of the papers in the special issue.

The creation of an application for education presents several challenges: making the language technology sufficiently reliable and thus advancing our knowledge in the language technologies , creating an application that actually enables students to learn, and engaging the student.

Papers in this special issue should deal with several of these issues. Although language learning is the primary target of research at present, papers on the use of language technologies for other education applications are encouraged. Deadline for decisions and feedback from reviewers and editors: August 31, Deadline for revisions of papers: November 31, Gauvain as the handling E-i-C.

Short papers and demo descriptions will be featured in short plenary presentations, followed by posters and demonstrations. In addition to this, two additional pages are allowed as an appendix which may include extended example discourses or dialogues, algorithms, graphical representations, etc.

Link to follow. Papers that have been or will be submitted to other meetings or publications must provide this information see submission format. SIGdial cannot accept for publication or presentation work that will be or has been published elsewhere. Any questions regarding submissions can be sent to the co-Chairs.

Authors are encouraged to make illustrative materials available, on the web or otherwise. For example, excerpts of recorded conversations, recordings of human-computer dialogues, interfaces to working systems, etc. Paper submission is done exclusively via the Interspeech conference website. Participants of this Challenge are asked to indicate the correct Special Session during submission.

What is not clear is where the human advantage originates. Does the fault lie in the acoustic representations of speech or in the recogniser architecture, or in a lack of compatibility between the two? There have been relatively few studies comparing human and automatic speech recognition on the same task, and, of these, overall identification performance is the dominant metric.

However, there are many insights which might be gained by carrying out a far more detailed comparison. The purpose of this Special Session is to make focused human-computer comparisons on a task involving consonant identification in noise, with all participants using the same training and test data.

Training and test data and native listener and baseline recogniser results will be provided by the organisers, but participants are encouraged to also contribute listener responses.

This participation is free of charge and participants can keep and use the development and evaluation data for free after the evaluations for research and development purposes. Each system will be able to use the feedback at any time to increase performance. The participant systems will have to provide a Boolean decision for each document according to each filtering profile.

A curve of the evolution of efficiency will be computed. Although cross-lingual systems are encouraged, the campaign is also open to monolingual systems. Tasks and languages Two tasks and three languages are considered. The first task is Information Filtering on general news and events.

For this task, participants will have to classify each transmitted news-wire into zero, one or more different profiles. The second task is Information Filtering on science and technology domain. Participants will have to associate to each news-wire zero, one or more science and technology profiles.

A total of 20 profiles will be available in 3 languages Arabic, English and French. For each task, participants are free to register to monolingual filtering e. Corpus The corpus consists of , news-wires in Arabic, English and French from the news agency Agence France Presse covering the period.

The news-wires are related to general news and events information and are comparable between Arabic, English and French.

Protocol description General information about the domain of profiles is given to each participant. Profiles are composed of a list of keywords simple and complex noun phrases and up to 3 documents illustrating each profile. Then, news-wires are transmitted by the organizer to an automated interface of each participating system.

The interface returns a Boolean response for each profile. After reception of this response, and if requested by the participant, the organizer sends a feedback consisting of expected profile assignments for each document submitted. Participants may adapt their system at any time using this feedback.

Mobile devices, such as ultra-mobile PCs, personal digital assistants, and smart phones have many unique characteristics that make them both highly desirable as well as difficult to use. On the positive side, they are small, convenient, personalizable, and provide an anytime-anywhere communication capability.

Conversely, they have limited input and output capabilities, limited bandwidth, limited memory, and restricted processing power. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussing the challenges in natural and spoken language processing and systems research that are unique to this domain.

We argue that mobile devices not only provide an ideal opportunity for language processing applications but also offer new challenges for NLP and spoken language understanding research.

Learned language models could be transferred from device to device, propagating and updating the language models continuously and in a decentralized manner. Processing and memory limitations incurred by executing NLP and speech recognition on small devices need to be addressed.

The limitation of the input and output channels necessitates typing on increasingly smaller keyboards which is quite difficult, and similarly reading on small displays is challenging. Speech interfaces, language generation and dialog systems would provide a natural way to interact with mobile devices. Furthermore , the growing market of cell phones in developing regions can be used for delivering applications in the areas of health, education and economic growth to rural communities.

Some of the challenges in this area are the limited literacy, the many languages and dialects spoken and the networking infrastructure. The goal of this one day workshop is to provide a forum to allow both industrial and academic researchers to share their experiences and visions, to present results, compare systems, exchange ideas and formulate common goals. The title of her talk is soon to be announced. Organizing committee:.

We welcome you to the workshop. Young Researchers’ Roundtable on Spoken Dialog Systems June 21st, , Columbus, Ohio, Second Call for Participation The Young Researchers’ Roundtable on Spoken Dialog Systems is an annual workshop designed for students, post docs, and junior researchers working in research related to spoken dialogue systems in both academia and industry.

The roundtable provides an open forum where participants can discuss their research interests, current work and future plans. The workshop is meant to provide an interdisciplinary forum for creative thinking about current issues in spoken dialogue systems research, and help create a stronger international network of young researchers working in the field.

There will also be time for participants to have informal discussions over coffee with senior researchers on potential career opportunities. The small discussion groups are intended to allow participants to exchange ideas on key research topics, and identify issues that are likely to be important in the coming years.

The results of each discussion group will then presented and discussed in plenary sessions. The topics for discussion are still open and will be determined by participant submissions and finalized online before the workshop. Potential participants should submit a short paper, as described below in the submission process to get accepted to the workshop. In addition to the traditional one day event, a half day extension on the topic of “Frameworks and Grand Challenges for Dialog System Evaluation” is under consideration for the morning of June 22nd, The aim of this extra extension is to provide an opportunity for dialog systems researchers to discuss issues of evaluation, and hopefully determine an agenda for a future evaluation event or framework.

Organization of this extended event will depend on interest; we therefore, as described below, invite potential participants to indicate their interest with their YRR08 submission. Submission Process We invite participation from students, post docs, and junior researchers in academia or industry who are currently working in spoken dialog systems research. We also invite participation from those who are working in related fields such as linguistics, psychology, or speech processing, as applied to spoken dialogue systems.

Please note that by ‘young researchers’ the workshop’s organizers mean to target students and researchers in the field who are at a relatively early stage of their careers, and in no way mean to imply that participants must meet certain age restrictions.

Potential participants should submit a 2-page position paper and suggest topics for discussion and whether they would be interested in attending the extended session on Sunday morning. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis from that day until the maximum number of participants for the workshop 50 is reached, or until the submission deadline May 10th, is reached.

Proceedings from previous years’ workshops are also available on our web site. It can manifest itself at the earliest stages of processing in the form of degraded inputs that our systems must be prepared to handle.

People are adept when it comes to pattern recognition tasks involving typeset or handwritten documents or recorded speech, machines less-so. From the perspective of down-stream processes that take as their inputs the outputs of recognition systems, including document analysis and OCR, noise can be viewed as the errors made by earlier stages of processing, which are rarely perfect and sometimes quite brittle.

Noisy unstructured text data is also found in informal settings such as online chat, SMS, email, message board and newsgroup postings, blogs, wikis and web pages. By its very nature, noisy text warrants moving beyond traditional text analytics techniques. Noise introduces challenges that need special handling, either through new methods or improved versions of existing ones. We invite you to submit your own unique perspectives on this important topic.

The target audience is a mixture of academia and industry researchers working with noisy text. We believe this work is of direct relevance to domains such as call centers, the world-wide web, and government organizations that need to analyze huge amounts of noisy data.

Publication We are currently in negotiation with a leading publisher for the proceedings to be available onsite. We have also received tentative approval for a special issue of a journal for post-workshop publication of selected papers.

Subramaniam lvsubram in. The field of Semantic Computing SC brings together those disciplines concerned with connecting the often vaguely-formulated intentions of humans with computational content. This connection can go both ways: retrieving, using and manipulating existing content according to user’s goals “do what the user means” ; and creating, rearranging, and managing content that matches the author’s intentions “do what the author means”.

The content addressed in SC includes, but is not limited to, structured and semi-structured data, multimedia data, text, programs, services and, even, network behaviour. This connection between content and the user is made via 1 Semantic Analysis, which analyzes content with the goal of converting it to meaning semantics ; 2 Semantic Integration, which integrates content and semantics from multiple sources; 3 Semantic Applications, which utilize content and semantics to solve problems; and 4 Semantic Interfaces, which attempt to interpret users’ intentions expressed in natural language or other communicative forms.

Example areas of SC include but, again, are not limited to the following:. The second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing ICSC builds on the success of ICSC as an international interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying the emerging research topics and defining the future of Semantic Computing.

The conference particularly welcomes interdisciplinary research that facilitates the ultimate success of Semantic Computing. The technical program of ICSC includes tutorials, workshops, invited talks, paper presentations, panel discussions, demo sessions, and an industry track.

Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited. Authors are invited to submit an 8-page technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE format following the guidelines available on the ICSC web page under “submissions”.

Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be selected for publications in internationally renowned journals. Exploration of new avenues and methodologies of signal processing will also be encouraged. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality.

Proposals for tutorials are also invited. Some famous speakers have already been confirmed, but we also hereby call for new proposals for tutorials. MLMI brings together researchers from the different communities working on the common theme of advanced machine learning algorithms applied to multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction.

The motivation for creating this joint multi-disciplinary workshop arose from the actual needs of several large collaborative projects, in Europe and the United States. To propose special sessions or satellite events, please contact the special session chair.

Submissions are invited either as long papers 12 pages or as short papers 6 pages , and may include a demonstration proposal. Upon acceptance of a paper, the Program Committee will also assign to it a presentation format, oral or poster, taking into account: a the most suitable format given the content of the paper; b the length of the paper long papers are more likely to be presented orally ; c the preferences expressed by the authors.

Camera-ready versions of accepted papers, both long and short, are required to follow these guidelines and to take into account the reviewers’ comments. Authors of accepted short papers are encouraged to turn them into long papers for the proceedings.

Future Speech Science and Technology Events Speech production workshop: Paris Postdoctoral position. An articulatory model comprises both the visible and the internal mobile articulators which are involved in speech articulation: the lower jaw, tongue, lips and velum as well as the fixed walls the palate, the rear wall of the pharynx. An articulatory model is dynamic since the articulators deform during speech production. Such a model has a potential interest in the field of language learning by providing visual feedback on the articulation conducted by the learner, and many other applications.

Building an articulatory model is difficult because the different articulators have to be detected from specific image modalities: the lips are acquired through video, the tongue shape is acquired through ultrasound imaging with a high frame rate but these 2D images are very noisy.

Finally, 3D images of all articulators can be obtained with MRI but only for sustained sounds as vowels due to the long acquisition time of MRI images. The subject of this post-doc is to construct a dynamic 3D model of the entire vocal tract by merging the 3D information available in the MRI acquisitions and temporal 2D information provided by the contours of the tongue visible on the ultrasound images or X-ray images.

We already built an acquisition system which allows us to obtain synchronized data from ultrasound, MRI, video and EM modalities. Only a few complete articulatory models are currently available in the world and a real challenge in the field is to design set-ups and easy-to-use methods for automatically building the model of any speaker from 3D and 2D images.

Indeed, the existence of more articulatory models would open new directions of research about speaker variability and speech production. The aim of the subject is to build a deformable model of the vocal tract from static 3D MRI images and 2D dynamic 2D sequences.

Previous works have been conducted on the modelling of the vocal tract, and especially of the tongue M. Stone[ 1] O. Engwall [2]. Unfortunately, important human interaction is required to extract tongue contours in the images.

In addition, only one image modality is often considered in these works, thus reducing the reliability of the model obtained. The aim of this work is to provide automatic methods for segmenting features in the images as well as methods for building a parametric model of the 3D vocal tract with these specific aims:. The recruited person must have a solid background in computer vision and in applied mathematics.

Located in the heart of Berlin, T-Labs can offer both academic freedom and access to industry resources. Our goal is to both improve currently deployed IVR systems and to provide ideas and consulting for future voice-based services.

In this setting, “word error rate” is only one optimization criterion among many and it is not our primary target to fundamentally change the core technology, but to improve and make usable, what is conceivable today. We are offering two- to six-year positions suitable for recent PhD in speech recognition or related fields, with a desire to further strengthen their academic credentials, but also have a strong interest in getting their research results transferred to production systems. For these positions, previous experience in speech technology is not mandatory, but still desirable.

For both tracks, you should have a strong analytical background, excellent programming skills, be self-motivated and have good communication skills.

Knowledge of the German language however is not required. Interest in commercial applications of speech recognition and an understanding of business aspects is a plus. Depending on your interest and qualification profile, we may be able to arrange for opportunities including collaboration with external partners, too. Our current research focus is on:.

The field of speech processing has shown a very fast development in the past twenty years, thanks to both technological progress and to the convergence of research into a few mainstream approaches.

However, some specificities of the speech signal are still not well addressed by the current models. We are now soliciting journal papers not only from workshop participants but also from other researchers for a special issue of Speech Communication on “Non-Linear and Non-Conventional Speech Processing”. The development of Multimodal User Interfaces relies on systemic research involving signal processing, pattern analysis, machine intelligence and human computer interaction.

This journal is a response to the need of common forums grouping these research communities. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:. The submission procedure and the publication schedule are described at:.

Over the last few years, these connections have been made yet stronger, under the influence of several factors. A first line of convergence relates to the shared collection and exploitation of the considerable resources that are now available to us in the domain of spoken language.

These resources have come to play a major role both for phonologists and phoneticians, who endeavor to subject their theoretical hypotheses to empirical tests using large speech corpora, and for NLP specialists, whose interest in spoken language is increasing. While these resources were first based on audio recordings of read speech, they have been progressively extended to bi- or multimodal data and to spontaneous speech in conversational interaction.

Research on spoken language has thus led to the generalized utilization of a large set of tools and methods for automatic data processing and analysis: grapheme-to-phoneme converters, text-to-speech aligners, automatic segmentation of the speech signal into units of various sizes from acoustic events to conversational turns , morpho-syntactic tagging, etc.

Large-scale corpus studies in phonology and phonetics make an ever increasing use of tools that were originally developed by NLP researchers, and which range from electronic dictionaries to full-fledged automatic speech recognition systems. In this scientific context, which very much fosters the establishment of cross-disciplinary bridges around spoken language, the knowledge and resources accumulated by phonologists and phoneticians are now being put to use by NLP researchers, whether this is to build up lexical databases from speech corpora, to develop automatic speech recognition systems able to deal with regional variations in the sound pattern of a language, or to design talking-face synthesis systems in man-machine communication.

Contributions are therefore invited on the following topics:. Automatic procedures for the large-scale processing of multi-modal databases. Multi-level annotation systems.

Text-to-speech systems. It has moved to an electronic mode of publication, with printing on demand. This affects in no way its reviewing and selection process. John Goldsmith, University of Chicago. Yvan Rose, Memorial University of Newfoundland. Although, representing information in digital form has many compelling technical and economic advantages, it has led to new issues and significant challenges when performing forensics analysis of digital evidence.

There has been a slowly growing body of scientific techniques for recovering evidence from digital data. These techniques have come to be loosely coupled under the umbrella of “Digital Forensics.

Thus, focused tutorial and survey contributions are solicited from topics, including but not limited to, the following:. Computer Forensics – File system and memory analysis. File carving. Media source identification – camera, printer, scanner, microphone identification.

Differentiating synthetic and sensor media, for example camera vs. Detecting and localizing media tampering and processing.

Voiceprint analysis and speaker identification for forensics. Speech transcription for forensics. Analysis of deceptive speech. Acoustic processing for forensic analysis – e.

Forensic musicology and copyright infringement detection. Steganalysis – Detection of hidden data in images, audio, video. Steganalysis techniques for natural language steganography. Detection of covert channels. Data Mining techniques for large scale forensics. Privacy and social issues related to forensics. Robustness of media forensics methods against counter measures.

Case studies and trend reports. White papers, limited to 3 single-column double-spaced pages, should summarize the motivation, the significance of the topic, a brief history, and an outline of the content.

In all cases, prospective contributors should make sure to emphasize the signal processing in their submission. White Paper Due: April 7, Notification of White paper Review Results: April 30, Full Paper Submission: July 15, Acceptance Notification: October 15, Final Manuscript Due: November 15, Publication Date: March Prospective authors should submit high quality, original manuscripts that have not appeared, nor are under consideration, in any other journals.

Almost everyone is a producer and a consumer of multimedia in a world in which, for the first time, tremendous amount of contextual information is being automatically recorded by the various devices we use e. In recent years, researchers have started making progress in effectively integrating context and content for multimedia mining and management.

Integration of content and context is crucial to human-human communication and human understanding of multimedia: without context it is difficult for a human to recognize various objects, and we become easily confused if the audio-visual signals we perceive are mismatched.

For the same reasons, integration of content and context is likely to enable semi automatic content analysis and indexing methods to become more powerful in managing multimedia data.

It can help narrow part of the semantic and sensory gap that is difficult or even impossible to bridge using approaches that do not explicitly consider context for semi automatic content-based analysis and indexing.

The goal of this special issue is to collect cutting-edge research work in integrating content and context to make multimedia content management more effective. The special issue will unravel the problems generally underlying these integration efforts, elaborate on the true potential of contextual information to enrich the content management tools and algorithms, discuss the dilemma of generic versus narrow-scope solutions that may result from “too much” contextual information, and provide us vision and insight from leading experts and practitioners on how to best approach the integration of context and content.

The special issue will also present the state of the art in context and content-based models, algorithms, and applications for multimedia management. Topics of interest include but are not limited to : – Contextual metadata extraction – Models for temporal context, spatial context, imaging context e. While the papers collected through the open call are expected to sample the research efforts currently invested within the community on effectively combining contextual and content information for optimal analysis, indexing and retrieval of multimedia data, the invited papers will be selected to highlight the main problems and approaches generally underlying these efforts.

All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 independent reviewers. Invited papers will be solicited first through white papers to ensure the quality and relevance to the special issue. The accepted invited papers will be reviewed by the guest editors and expect to account for about one fourth of the papers in the special issue.

The creation of an application for education presents several challenges: making the language technology sufficiently reliable and thus advancing our knowledge in the language technologies , creating an application that actually enables students to learn, and engaging the student.

Papers in this special issue should deal with several of these issues. Although language learning is the primary target of research at present, papers on the use of language technologies for other education applications are encouraged. Deadline for decisions and feedback from reviewers and editors: August 31, Deadline for revisions of papers: November 31, Gauvain as the handling E-i-C.

The conferences in Nara, Japan , and in Dresden, Germany followed the proposal of biennial meetings, and now is the time of changing place and hemisphere by trying the challenge of offering a non-stereotypical view of Brazil. It is worth highlighting that prosody covers a multidisciplinary area of research involving scientists from very different backgrounds and traditions, including linguistics and phonetics, conversation analysis, semantics and pragmatics, sociolinguistics, acoustics, speech synthesis and recognition, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, speech therapy, language teaching, and related fields.

We invite all participants to contribute with papers presenting original research from all areas of speech prosody, especially, but nor limited to the following. The organizing committee invites the international community to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments in the field.

HSCMA will feature plenary talks by leading researchers in the field as well as poster and demo sessions. The authors should submit a two page extended abstract including text, figures, references, and paper classification categories. PDF files of extended abstracts must be submitted through the conference website located at hscma Comprehensive guidelines for abstract preparation and submission can also be found at the conference website.

Paper submission is done exclusively via the Interspeech conference website. Participants of this Challenge are asked to indicate the correct Special Session during submission. What is not clear is where the human advantage originates.

Does the fault lie in the acoustic representations of speech or in the recogniser architecture, or in a lack of compatibility between the two? There have been relatively few studies comparing human and automatic speech recognition on the same task, and, of these, overall identification performance is the dominant metric.

However, there are many insights which might be gained by carrying out a far more detailed comparison. The purpose of this Special Session is to make focused human-computer comparisons on a task involving consonant identification in noise, with all participants using the same training and test data. Training and test data and native listener and baseline recogniser results will be provided by the organisers, but participants are encouraged to also contribute listener responses.

As linked to the International PhD School in Formal Languages and Applications that is being developed at the host institute since , LATA will reserve significant room for young computer scientists at the beginning of their career. It will aim at attracting scholars from both classical theory fields and application areas bioinformatics, systems biology, language technology, artificial intelligence, etc. SCOPE: Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to: – words, languages and automata – grammars Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, multidimensional, unification, categorial, etc.

Papers should not exceed 12 pages and should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style. Submissions have to be sent through the web page. A refereed volume of selected proceedings containing extended papers will be published soon after it as a special issue of a major journal.

Details about how to register will be provided through the website of the conference. The event will have a double identity: both a workshop and a doctoral school. The workshop is planned to be a succession of debates and tutorials held by invited speakers in which phoneticians and phonologists, psycholinguists and speech engineers compare their opinions on these themes.

The workshop is mainly directed to S2S members but contributions posters will be accepted from any other interested researcher. Those who intend to contribute to the workshop with a poster on one of the above cited themes should send an abstract minimum two A4 pages to: s2snaples gmail. The same e-mail address can be used for any further questions. Beyond their semiotic differences, speech and music share acoustic features such as duration, intensity, and pitch, and have their own internal organization, with their own rhythms, colors, timbres and tones.

The aim of this workshop is to question the connections between various forms of expressivity, and the prosodic and gestural dimensions in the spheres of music and speech. We will first tackle the links between speech and music through enaction and embodied cognition. We will then work on computer modelling for speech and music synthesis.

The third part will focus on musicological and aesthetic perspectives. We will end the workshop with a round table in order to create a dialogue between the various angles used to apprehend prosody and expressivity in both speech and music. Our aim is to make links between several fields of research and create a community interested in the relations between music and language.

The project will be materialized in a final publication of the keynote papers of those four events. Authors should submit an extended abstract to: beller ircam. We will send an email confirming the reception of the submission. The suggested abstract length is maximum 1 page, formatted in standard style.

The authors of the accepted abstracts will be allocated as poster highlights. Time will be allocated in the programme for poster presentations and discussions. Before the workshop, the extended abstracts maximum 4 pages will be made available to a broader audience on the workshop web site. We also plan to maintain the web page after the workshop and encourage the authors to submit slides and posters with relevant links to their personal web pages.

Most submitted papers will be presented in poster form, though some authors may be invited to present in lecture format. Context and Focus The minority or “less resourced” languages of the world are under increasing pressure from the major languages especially English , and many of them lack full political recognition. Some minority languages have been well researched linguistically, but most have not, and the majority do not yet possess basic speech and language resources which would enable the commercial development of products.

This lack of language products may accelerate the decline of those languages that are already struggling to survive. To break this vicious circle, it is important to encourage the development of basic language resources as a first step. In recent years, linguists across the world have realised the need to document endangered languages immediately, and to publish the raw data. This raw data can be transformed automatically or with the help of volunteers into resources for basic speech and language technology.

It thus seems necessary to extend the scope of recent workshops on speech and language technology beyond technological questions of interoperability between digital resources: the focus will be on the human aspect of creating and disseminating language resources for the benefit of endangered and non-endangered less-resourced languages.

The HUMAINE Association portal will provide a range of services for individuals, such as a web presence, access to data, and an email news service; special interest groups will be provided with a working folder, a mailing list, and a discussion forum or a blog. Conferences, workshops and research projects in the area of emotion-oriented computing can be given a web presence on the portal.

Papers are invited in the area of corpora for research on emotion and affect. They may raise one or more of the following questions. What kind of theory of emotion is needed to guide the area? What are appropriate sources? Which modalities should be considered, in which combinations?

What are the realistic constraints on recording quality? How can the emotional content of episodes be described within a corpus? Which emotion-related features should a corpus describe, and how?

How should access to corpora be provided? What level of standardisation is appropriate? How can quality be assessed? Ethical issues in database development and access. Description of the specific technical issues of the workshop: Many models of emotion are common enough to affect the way teams go about collecting and describing emotion-related data. Some which are familiar and intuitively appealing are known to be problematic, either because they are theoretically dated or because they do not transfer to practical contexts.

To evaluate the resources that are already available, and to construct valid new corpora, research teams need some sense of the models that are relevant to the area. Submitted abstracts of papers for oral and poster must consist of about words.

Final submissions should be 4 pages long, must be in English, and follow the submission guidelines at LREC The preferred format is MS word or pdf. The file should be submitted via email to lrec-emotion limsi. Submitted papers will be blind reviewed. Please follow the procedure to submit your abstract.

Only online submissions will be considered. Submissions must be in English. Abstracts should be submitted in PDF format. Abstracts for workshop contributions should not exceed 4 Four A4 pages excluding references. An additional title page should state: the title; author s ; affiliation s ; and contact author’s e-mail address, as well as postal address, telephone and fax numbers.

There is no template for the pdf abstract. The template will be made available online for the for the final papers.

The submissions are not anonymous. Submitted papers will be judged based on relevance to the workshop aims, as well as the novelty of the idea, technical quality, clarity of presentation, and expected impact on future research within the area of focus. Any question should be sent to arabic elda. Registration to LREC’08 will be required for participation, so potential participants are invited to refer to the main conference website for all details not covered in the present call. The conference will include oral and poster communications, invited conferences, workshops and tutorials.

Workshop and tutorials will be held on June 13, Workshops can be organized on any specific aspect of NLP. The aim of these sessions is to facilitate an in-depth discussion of this theme.

A workshop has its own president and its own program committee. The organizers ofthe main TALN conference will only take in charge the organization of the usual practical details rooms, coffee breaks, proceedings. Workshops will be organized in parallel sessions on the last day of the conference 2 to 4 sessions of Workshop and Tutorial proposals will be sent by email to taln08 atala. The TALN program committee will make a selection of the proposals and announce it on November 30th, Conferences will be given in French or English for non French native speakers.

Worshop papers should not be longer than 10 pages in Times 12 references included. Contact: taln08 atala. Mobile devices, such as ultra-mobile PCs, personal digital assistants, and smart phones have many unique characteristics that make them both highly desirable as well as difficult to use. On the positive side, they are small, convenient, personalizable, and provide an anytime-anywhere communication capability.

Conversely, they have limited input and output capabilities, limited bandwidth, limited memory, and restricted processing power. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussing the challenges in natural and spoken language processing and systems research that are unique to this domain.

We argue that mobile devices not only provide an ideal opportunity for language processing applications but also offer new challenges for NLP and spoken language understanding research. Learned language models could be transferred from device to device, propagating and updating the language models continuously and in a decentralized manner. Processing and memory limitations incurred by executing NLP and speech recognition on small devices need to be addressed.

The limitation of the input and output channels necessitates typing on increasingly smaller keyboards which is quite difficult, and similarly reading on small displays is challenging. Speech interfaces, language generation and dialog systems would provide a natural way to interact with mobile devices.

Furthermore , the growing market of cell phones in developing regions can be used for delivering applications in the areas of health, education and economic growth to rural communities. Some of the challenges in this area are the limited literacy, the many languages and dialects spoken and the networking infrastructure. The goal of this one day workshop is to provide a forum to allow both industrial and academic researchers to share their experiences and visions, to present results, compare systems, exchange ideas and formulate common goals.

The title of her talk is soon to be announced. We accept position papers 2 pages , short research or demo papers 4 pages , and regular papers 8 content pages with 1 extra page for references.

Rosario , Barbara Intel Research. Paek, Tim Microsoft Research. For question s about the workshop, please contact Barbara Rosario barbara. We welcome you to the workshop. The roundtable provides an open forum where participants can discuss their research interests, current work and future plans. The workshop is meant to provide an interdisciplinary forum for creative thinking about current issues in spoken dialogue systems research, and help create a stronger international network of young researchers working in the field.

There will also be time for participants to have informal discussions over coffee with senior researchers on potential career opportunities. The small discussion groups are intended to allow participants to exchange ideas on key research topics, and identify issues that are likely to be important in the coming years.

The results of each discussion group will then presented and discussed in plenary sessions. The topics for discussion are still open and will be determined by participant submissions and finalized online before the workshop. Potential participants should submit a short paper, as described below in the submission process to get accepted to the workshop. In addition to the traditional one day event, a half day extension on the topic of “Frameworks and Grand Challenges for Dialog System Evaluation” is under consideration for the morning of June 22nd, The aim of this extra extension is to provide an opportunity for dialog systems researchers to discuss issues of evaluation, and hopefully determine an agenda for a future evaluation event or framework.

Organization of this extended event will depend on interest; we therefore, as described below, invite potential participants to indicate their interest with their YRR08 submission. Submission Process We invite participation from students, post docs, and junior researchers in academia or industry who are currently working in spoken dialog systems research. We also invite participation from those who are working in related fields such as linguistics, psychology, or speech processing, as applied to spoken dialogue systems.

Please note that by ‘young researchers’ the workshop’s organizers mean to target students and researchers in the field who are at a relatively early stage of their careers, and in no way mean to imply that participants must meet certain age restrictions. Potential participants should submit a 2-page position paper and suggest topics for discussion and whether they would be interested in attending the extended session on Sunday morning.

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis from that day until the maximum number of participants for the workshop 50 is reached, or until the submission deadline May 10th, is reached. Proceedings from previous years’ workshops are also available on our web site. Deadline March 1st, The field of Semantic Computing SC brings together those disciplines concerned with connecting the often vaguely-formulated intentions of humans with computational content.

This connection can go both ways: retrieving, using and manipulating existing content according to user’s goals “do what the user means” ; and creating, rearranging, and managing content that matches the author’s intentions “do what the author means”. The content addressed in SC includes, but is not limited to, structured and semi-structured data, multimedia data, text, programs, services and, even, network behaviour.

This connection between content and the user is made via 1 Semantic Analysis, which analyzes content with the goal of converting it to meaning semantics ; 2 Semantic Integration, which integrates content and semantics from multiple sources; 3 Semantic Applications, which utilize content and semantics to solve problems; and 4 Semantic Interfaces, which attempt to interpret users’ intentions expressed in natural language or other communicative forms.

Example areas of SC include but, again, are not limited to the following:. The second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing ICSC builds on the success of ICSC as an international interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying the emerging research topics and defining the future of Semantic Computing.

The conference particularly welcomes interdisciplinary research that facilitates the ultimate success of Semantic Computing. The technical program of ICSC includes tutorials, workshops, invited talks, paper presentations, panel discussions, demo sessions, and an industry track. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.

Authors are invited to submit an 8-page technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE format following the guidelines available on the ICSC web page under “submissions”. Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be selected for publications in internationally renowned journals. Exploration of new avenues and methodologies of signal processing will also be encouraged.

Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Proposals for tutorials are also invited. Some famous speakers have already been confirmed, but we also hereby call for new proposals for tutorials.

Submission deadline of full papers 5 pages A4 : February 8, Submission deadline of proposals for tutorials: February 8, Notification of Acceptance: April 30, Conference: August , MLMI brings together researchers from the different communities working on the common theme of advanced machine learning algorithms applied to multimodal human-human and human-computer interaction.

The motivation for creating this joint multi-disciplinary workshop arose from the actual needs of several large collaborative projects, in Europe and the United States. To propose special sessions or satellite events, please contact the special session chair. Submissions are invited either as long papers 12 pages or as short papers 6 pages , and may include a demonstration proposal. Upon acceptance of a paper, the Program Committee will also assign to it a presentation format, oral or poster, taking into account: a the most suitable format given the content of the paper; b the length of the paper long papers are more likely to be presented orally ; c the preferences expressed by the authors.

Camera-ready versions of accepted papers, both long and short, are required to follow these guidelines and to take into account the reviewers’ comments.

Authors of accepted short papers are encouraged to turn them into long papers for the proceedings. Utrecht hosts one of the bigger universities in the country, and with its historic centre and the many students it provides and excellent atmosphere for social activities in- or outside the workshop community.

The board. Google Scholar is a research literature search engine that provides full-text search for ISCA papers whose full text cannot be searched with other search engines. Google Scholar’s citation tracking shows what papers have cited a particular paper, which can be very useful for finding follow-up work, related work and corrections.

More details about these and other features are given below. The titles, author lists, and abstracts of ISCA Archive papers are all on the public web, so they can be searched by a general-purpose search engine such as Google.

However, the full texts of most ISCA papers are password protected and thus cannot be searched with a general-purpose search engine. Google Scholar has similar arrangements with many other publishers. On the other hand, general-purpose search engines index all sorts of web pages and other documents accessible through the public web, many of which will not be in the Google Scholar index.

So it’s often useful to perform the same search using both Google Scholar and a general-purpose search engine.

Google Scholar automatically extracts citations from the full text of papers. It uses this information to provide a “Cited by” list for each paper in the Google Scholar index. This is a list of papers that have cited that paper.

Google Scholar also provides an automatically generated “Related Articles” list for each paper. The “Cited by” and “Related Articles” lists are powerful tools for discovering relevant papers.

Furthermore, the length of a paper’s “Cited by” list can be used as a convenient although imperfect measure of the paper’s impact. If “ISCA” is entered in that field, and nothing is entered in the main search field, then the search results will show what ISCA papers are the most highly cited.

For example, it seems many ICPhS papers are missing. And old papers which have been scanned in from paper copies will either not have their full contents indexed, or will be indexed using imperfect OCR technology. There are a few different areas which are not perfectly indexed, but the biggest planned improvement is to start using OCR for the ISCA papers which have been scanned in from paper copies.

There may be a time lag between when a new event is added to the ISCA Archive in the future and when it appears in the Google Scholar index. This time lag may be longer than the usual lag of general-purpose search engines such as Google, because ISCA must create Google Scholar catalog data for every new event and because the Google Scholar index seems to update considerably more slowly than the Google index.
