Call For Papers

CMU Sphinx Users and Developers Workshop 2010

20 March 2010, Dallas, TX, USA

Event URL:

Papers are solicited for the CMU Sphinx Workshop for Users and Developers (CMU-SPUD 2010), to be held in Dallas, Texas as a satellite to to ICASSP 2010.

CMU Sphinx is one of the most popular open source speech recognition systems. It is currently used by researchers and developers in many locations world-wide, including universities, research institutions and in industry. CMU Sphinx's liberal license terms has made it a significant member of the open source community and has provided a low-cost way for companies to build businesses around speech recognition.

The first SPUD workshop aims at bringing together CMU Sphinx users, to report on applications, developments and experiments conducted using the system. This workshop is intended to be an open forum that will allow different user communities to become better acquainted with each other and to share ideas. It is also an opportunity for the community to help define the future evolution of CMU Sphinx.

We are planning a one-day workshop with a limited number of oral presentations, chosen for breadth and stimulation, held in an informal atmosphere that promotes discussion. We hope this workshop will expose participants to different perspectives and that this in turn will help foster new directions in research, suggest interesting variations on current approaches and lead to new applications.

Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics. Papers must describe work performed with CMU Sphinx:

* Decoders: PocketSphinx, Sphinx-2, Sphinx-3, Sphinx-4
* Tools: SphinxTrain, CMU/Cambridge SLM toolkit
* Innovations / additions / modifications of the system
* Speech recognition in various languages
* Innovative uses, not limited to speech recognition
* Commercial applications
* Open source projects that incorporate Sphinx
* Novel demonstrations

Manuscripts must be between 4 and 6 pages long, in standard ICASSP double-column format. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
