SpokenQuery Voice Search Workshop 2010

13 March 2010, Dallas, TX

Event URL: http://www.spokenquery.org/

Aims

Papers are solicited for the SpokenQuery 2010 Workshop on Voice Search
(SQ2010), to be held in Dallas, Texas as a satellite to to ICASSP 2010.

Small devices with high computing power have become ubiquitous, via
cellphone-like devices, car communication systems, etc. This new reality
makes it feasible to utilize speech as the preferred input mode. Searching
for information from a spoken query brings its own challenges that go beyond
the inherent difficulties of speech recognition or information retrieval.

The first SQ workshop aims at bringing together researchers working in the
area that overlaps speech processing and information retrieval. This
workshop is intended to be an open forum that will allow different research
communities to become better acquainted with each other and to share ideas.

This one-day workshop will include a limited number of oral presentations,
chosen for breadth and stimulation, and an informal atmosphere to promote
discussion. We hope this workshop will expose participants to a broad
perspective of techniques, tools, best practices, and innovation, which will
provide the impetus for new research and compelling variants on current
approaches.

Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are solicited on, but
not limited to, the following topics:

    * Spoken queries in various languages
    * Retrieval of spoken or text documents via spoken query
    * Handling of new vocabulary words
    * Tools and databases
    * Commercial applications
    * Automotive spoken query applications
    * Spoken query applications via a mobile phone
    * Server-based and client-based approaches to automatic speech
recognition
    * Novel adaptation and noise robustness methods
    * Novel demonstrations

Manuscripts must be between 4 and 6 pages long, in standard ICASSP
double-column format. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop
proceedings.
