1st Young Researchers Workshop on Speech Technology

The aim of the workshop is for PhD students to present their current  
work, meet other PhD students in the same field and get feedback on  
their progress to date.

There are two keynote speakers, who will both talk about future trends  
in speech technology. One talk will focus on speech synthesis (Prof.  
Nick Campbell) and the other will focus on speech recognition (TBA).

To this end, we extend a special welcome to authors of papers on novel  
and emerging areas of research in speech technology.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Automatic Speech Recognition
Speech Synthesis
Corpus Construction and Annotation
Speaker Identification
Multilingual Speech Technology
Machine Learning Applied to Speech
Articulatory-Acoustic Feature Extraction and Applications
Speech Modelling
Irish and Hiberno Speech
Natural Language Processing
Submission Guidelines

The workshop has two types of submission formats: full 4-page papers  
and short 1-page papers for work-in-progress. Prospective authors are  
invited to submit papers in either format using the template provided
