CMU Sphinx Users and Developers Workshop 2010

Papers are solicited for the CMU Sphinx Workshop for Users and Developers
(CMU-SPUD 2010), to be held in Dallas, Texas as a satellite to to ICASSP

CMU Sphinx is one of the most popular open source speech recognition
systems. It is currently used by researchers and developers in many
locations world-wide, including universities, research institutions and in
industry. CMU Sphinx's liberal license terms has made it a significant
member of the open source community and has provided a low-cost way for
companies to build businesses around speech recognition.

The first SPUD workshop aims at bringing together CMU Sphinx users, to
report on applications, developments and experiments conducted using the
system. This workshop is intended to be an open forum that will allow
different user communities to become better acquainted with each other and
to share ideas. It is also an opportunity for the community to help define
the future evolution of CMU Sphinx.

We are planning a one-day workshop with a limited number of oral
presentations, chosen for breadth and stimulation, held in an informal
atmosphere that promotes discussion. We hope this workshop will expose
participants to different perspectives and that this in turn will help
foster new directions in research, suggest interesting variations on current
approaches and lead to new applications.

Papers describing relevant research and new concepts are solicited on, but
not limited to, the following topics. Papers must describe work performed
with CMU Sphinx:

    * Decoders: PocketSphinx, Sphinx-2, Sphinx-3, Sphinx-4
    * Tools: SphinxTrain, CMU/Cambridge SLM toolkit
    * Innovations / additions / modifications of the system
    * Speech recognition in various languages
    * Innovative uses, not limited to speech recognition
    * Commercial applications
