Topics of Interest
All areas that enable, optimize or enhance speech in mobile and pervasive
environments and devices. Possible areas include, but are not restricted
Speech Interfaces/Applications for Developing Regions
Speech User Interaction in Cars
Multilingual Speech Recognition
Robust Speech Recognition in Noisy and Resource-Constrained Environments
Memory/Energy Efficient Algorithms
Multimodal User Interfaces for Mobile Devices
Protocols and Standards for Speech Applications
Distributed Speech Processing
Mobile Application Adaptation and Learning
Prototypical System Architectures
Design and Usability Testing of Mobile Interfaces
We seek original, unpublished papers in the following three categories:
(a) Position papers that describe novel ideas that can lead to interesting
(b) Early results or work-in-progress that has significant promise, or,
(c) Full papers.
Papers should be of 4-8 pages in length in the MobileHCI publication
format. The LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates are available at the ACM
Template site. All submissions should be in the PDF format and should be
submitted electronically through the workshop submission web site,
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=simpe09. Since the submission
deadlines are dependent on the MobileHCI conference, we will not be able to
grant any extensions in any circumstances.
We also welcome participation without paper submission.
Note: Since the workshop also aims to be a meeting point for researchers
working in this area, at least one author of accepted papers has to attend
the workshop to present their work, else the paper will not be included in
the final workshop proceedings. Participants who wish to attend the
workshop will have to register for the main conference as well.
For any comments regarding submissions and participation, contact: namit AT

What are the usability issues with speech on mobile devices?
Are there efficient ways of enabling voice search on the device?
How to make voice UIs flexible and adaptive?
Are there any novel and easier ways to handle multiple languages and
How do we construct speech systems with small footprints of memory and
How can we distribute processing more efficiently given the increased
available computing power on handhelds? How do we trade this off with
a remote server to conserve energy?
How can we design scalable speech applications?
How can we leverage context (such as location) to make more intelligent
UIs that reduce the `cognitive burden' of semi-literate/illiterate
How to design speech interfaces that are safe and robust for using in
