=====================================================================
	

While developing and deploying information and communication systems for 
vehicles it is essential to take care of following issues
a) the user has limited possibilities to interact with such systems 
concerning system control
b) the user does not draw his primary attention on system interaction 
due to the fact of controlling his vehicle
c) the interaction with systems in vehicles is heavily distorted by 
acoustical and optical signal noise

Due to these circumstances it is necessary to develop and deploy 
information and communictaion systems which are integrated as multi 
modal systems
where speech and language technology is the main interface in 
human-machine communication.
There is a big challenge to such natural interaction systems according 
the signal noise and for this reason such a system
has to be exceeding in roboustness.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss current research activities and 
running applications of concerning speech and language technology
in the vehicle domain. The workshop should provide an overview of 
research and applied systems.

The workshop has two parts: a speaker session and a poster session. The 
workshop language is German as well as English.
