AVSP 2011 - The 11th International Conference
on Auditory-Visual Speech Processing

August 31 - September 3, 2011

Volterra, Italy


The 11th international conference on Auditory-Visual Speech
Processing (AVSP) will be held from August 31 to September 3,
2011, directly following the INTERSPEECH2011 conference.

AVSP is a uniquely interdiciplinary conference, being focused on
 synergy effects of auditory and visual speech information on
human perception, machine recognition, and human-machine
interaction. AVSP conferences have attracted a lot of researchers
 in various fields, such as psychologists, computer engineers,
neuroscientists, linguists, phoneticians, and robot engineers.

The AVSP2011 conference will consist of oral and poster
presentations, a demo session and lectures by invited speakers
(see below).

Submission of papers or demo proposals are invited in any areas
of auditory-visual speech processing including but not limited

* Audio-visual speech synthesis
* Audio-visual speech recognition by humans and machines
* Models of multimodal integration
* Multimodal processing of spoken events
* Cross-linguistic studies of audio-visual speech processing
* Developmental studies of audio-visual speech processing
* Role of gestures accompanying speech
* Audio-visual prosody
* Modeling, animation and recognition of gestures and expressions
* Neurophysiology and neuropsychology of audition and vision
* Scene analysis using audio and visual information
* Novel techniques for animation of talking faces
* Data collection and corpora for audio-visual speech processing
