SPECOM 2017 - FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
19th International Conference on Speech and Computer (SPECOM-2017)
Venue: Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK, September 12-16, 2017
The Speech and Computer International Conference (SPECOM) has become a regular event since the first SPECOM that was held in in 1996 St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. SPECOM is a conference with a long tradition that attracts researchers in the area of computer speech processing (recognition, synthesis, understanding etc.) and related domains (including signal processing, language and text processing, multi-modal speech processing, or human-computer interaction).
The SPECOM international conference is an ideal platform for know-how exchange especially for experts working on Slavic and other highly inflectional languages including less-resourced and standard, well-resourced languages.
The conference is organized by University of Hertfordshire (Hatfield, UK), in cooperation with St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Science (SPIIRAS, St. Petersburg, Russia), Moscow State Linguistic University (MSLU, Moscow, Russia) and St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO University, St. Petersburg, Russia)
The SPECOM conference is devoted to issues of human-machine interaction, particularly:
Applications for human-machine interaction
Audio-visual speech processing
Automatic language identification
Corpus linguistics and linguistic processing
Forensic speech investigations and security systems
Multichannel signal processing
Multimodal analysis and synthesis
Signal processing and feature extraction
Speaker identification and diarization
Speaker verification systems
Speech analytics and audio mining
Speech and language resources
Speech disorders and voice pathologies
Speech driving systems in robotics
