Call for papers:
International Conference on Auditory-Visual Speech Processing (AVSP 2007),
Hilvarenbeek (The Netherlands), August31-September 3, 2007

The next International Conference on Auditory-Visual Speech Processing (AVSP
2007) will be organised by different members of Tilburg University (The
Netherlands). It will take place in Kasteel Groenendael  in Hilvarenbeek
(The Netherlands) from  August 31, 2007 till September 3, 2007, immediately
following Interspeech 2007 in Antwerp (Belgium). Hilvarenbeek is located at
close distance from Antwerp, so that attendance at AVSP 2007 can easily be
combined with participation in Interspeech 2007.

Auditory-visual speech production and perception by human and machine is an
interdisciplinary and cross-linguistic field which has attracted speech
scientists, cognitive psychologists, phoneticians, computational engineers,
and researchers in language learning studies.  Since the inaugural workshop
in Bonas in 1995, Auditory-Visual Speech Processing workshops have been
organised on a regular basis (see an overview at the avisa website).  In
line with previous meetings, this conference will consist of a mixture of
regular presentations (both posters and oral), and lectures by invited
speakers. All presentations will be plenary.

Submission of papers are invited in any areas of auditory-visual processing,

- multimodal processing of spoken events
- cross-linguistic studies of auditory-visual speech processing
- developmental studies of auditory-visual speech processing
- gesture and expression animation
- modelling of facial gestures
- auditory-visual speech synthesis
- audiovisual prosody
- neurophysiology and neuropsychology of audition and vision
- machine recognition of auditory-visual speech
- human and machine models of auditory-visual integration
- auditory-visual scene analysis

Abstracts of about 250 words are  due March 1, 2007. Notification of
acceptance will be sent out by March 15. Final papers will be due June 1,
2007. Four to six page papers will be published  in CD-Rom form. In addition
to the 4 to 6 pages, authors may provide audio/video files for inclusion on
