TC-STAR Workshop on Speech-to-Speech Translation
June 19-21, 2006
Barcelona, Spain



TC-STAR is a European integrated project focusing on Speech-to-Speech 
Translation (SST).
The project targets unconstrained conversational speech domains in 
three languages: European English, European Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.

The workshop intends to bring together researchers working on all 
aspects of speech-to-speech translation and to compare TC-Star 
innovative approaches to other on-going research projects.

The workshop is associated with an open evaluation campaign (for 
details see: 
<http://www.elda.org/tcstar-workshop/>www.elda.org/tcstar-workshop), 
whose results will be presented in addition to regular papers.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

unpublished research on all aspects of speech-to-speech translation:
    * speech and language translation

    * evaluation and system aspects: performance measures, 
integration of recognition and translation, combination of system outputs, ...
