Call for Papers


The Third Joint Workshop on Hands-free Speech Communication and
Microphone Arrays will be held from 30 May to 1 June 2011 in Edinburgh,

The workshop will bring together researchers in microphone arrays and
speech/speaker recognition and focusing on recent advances in speech and
signal processing techniques based upon multi-microphone systems, and on
distant-talking speech communication and human/machine interaction.
Demonstrations of experimental systems, applications, and prototypes are
especially welcome.

The technical scope of the workshop includes but is not limited to:
* Multichannel acoustic signal processing;
* Speech and speaker recognition technology;
* Microphone array technology and architectures;
* Applications based on microphone arrays and distant-talking or
hands-free speech systems.
There is an emphasis on work that crosses these technical areas.

Paper/demo submission: 13 February 2011
Notification of paper/demo acceptance: 21 March 2011
Workshop: 30 May - 1 June 2011

The workshop programme will consist of talks, posters and
demonstrations. Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length
papers (up to 6 pages; 2 pages for demo papers).

Authors are encouraged to include a public URL to a video of the demo in
their paper submission.
