Dear list,

please consider submitting a paper to our special session at INTERSPEECH 


                Special Session '/Child Computer Interaction/'**

                              at INTERSPEECH 2013*


This special session aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
from universities and industry working in all aspects of *multimodal
child-computer interaction *with a particular emphasis on, but not 
limited to,
interactive spoken language interfaces.
Examples of targeted domains where speech technology applications
involving child-computer interaction are becoming increasingly important
include healthcare and education, especially with the spread of mobile 
into the lives of children.
Of special interest for Interspeech 2013, in the light of the 
*humanistic view point*,
will be to consider the issue of global accessibility to these 
One challenge for the next two decades will be to employ affordable mobile
technology and remove barriers caused by health issues or remoteness
in order to grant accessibility to children around the globe.

We look forward to receiving a large variety of submissions addressing 
related to child-computer interaction from the areas of automatic speech 
linguistics, multimedia, robotics, human computer interaction and 
related disciplines.
