CALL FOR PAPERS for special issue of Speech Communication (deadline

"Bridging the Gap Between Human and Automatic Speech Processing"

This special issue of Speech Communication is entirely devoted to studies
that seek to bridge the gap between human and automatic speech
recognition. It follows the special session at INTERSPEECH 2005 on the
same topic. This issue and the Special Issue on "Intrinsic Speech
Variation and Speech Recognition" mutually complete each other.

announcements sent out in January and February 2006
submission date: April 30 2006 (was March 30)
papers out for review: May 7 2006
first round of reviews due: June 30  2006
notification of acceptance/revisions/rejections: July 7 2006
paper revisions due: August 15
notification of acceptance: August 30 2006
final manuscript due: September 30 2006
tentative publication date: December 2006

Papers are invited that cover one or several of the following issues:
- quantitative comparisons of human and automatic speech processing
capabilities, especially under varying environmental conditions
- computational approaches to modelling human speech perception
- use of automatic speech processing as an experimental tool in human
speech perception research
- speech perception/production-inspired modelling approaches for speech
recognition, speaker/language recognition, speaker tracking, sound source
- use of perceptually motivated models for providing rich transcriptions
of speech signals (i.e. annotations going beyond the word, such as
emotion, attitude, speaker characteristics, etc.)
- fine phonetic details: how should we envisage the design and evaluation
of computational models of the relation between fine phonetic details in
the signal on the one hand, and key effects in (human) speech processing
on the other hand.
- how can advanced detectors for articulatory-phonetic features be
integrated in the computational models for human speech processing
- the influence of speaker recognition on speech processing
Papers must be submitted by April 30, 2006 at Elsevier website. During
the submission mention that you are submitting to the Special Issue on
"Bridging the Gap..." in the paper section/category or author comments
and request Julia Hirschberg as managing editor for the paper.
