  4th Joint Workshop on Hands-Free Speech Communication and
  Microphone Arrays (HSCMA 2014)

              May 12-14, 2014, Nancy, France


* Call for Papers * HSCMA 2014 will bring together researchers
  and practitioners from academia and industry in an intimate and
  collegial setting to discuss problems of interest in the
  capture, enhancement, and recognition of far-field speech
  signals. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to,
  speech or speaker recognition in noisy or reverberant
  environments, single or multi-channel speech enhancement,
  dereverberation, microphone array processing, source
  separation, and multiple input/multiple-output (MIMO) acoustic
  signal processing. Interdisciplinary work that crosses multiple
  technical areas is especially encouraged. Demonstrations of
  experimental systems and prototypes are also welcome.

HSCMA 2014 is being held in conjunction with ICASSP 2014
(http://icassp2014.org/) and the REVERB challenge

* Workshop Topics * Papers in all areas of distant-talking
  human/human and human/machine interaction are encouraged,
 - Multi-channel and single-channel approaches for speech
   acquisition, noise suppression, source localization and
   separation, dereverberation, echo cancellation, and acoustic
   event detection
 - Speech and speaker recognition technology for hands-free
   scenarios, including robust features, feature-domain
   enhancement and dereverberation, and model adaptation
 - Microphone array technology and architectures, especially for
   distant-talking speech recognition and acoustic scene analysis
 - Speech corpora for training and evaluation of distant-talking
   speech systems
 - Applications based on microphone arrays and hands-free speech

* Paper & Demo Submission * The workshop technical program will
  consist of oral presentations, poster sessions, and
  demonstrations. Prospective authors are invited to submit
  full-length papers up to four pages, with a fifth page
  permitted for references only. Submissions for proposed
  demonstrations may be up to two pages in length.

* Special Sessions* The program will also feature special
  sessions on new or emerging topics of interest. Proposals for
  special sessions must include the session title, rationale,
  outline, and a list of four invited papers.

* Important Dates * Submission of special session proposals:
  November 8, 2013 Special session decisions announced: December
  6, 2013 Submission of papers & demos: January 24, 214 Paper &
  demo decisions announced: March 12, 2014 Submission of
  camera-ready papers & demos: April 4, 2014 Workshop: May 12-14,

* Organizing Committee * Emmanuel Vincent (Inria, France)
  Dietrich Klakow (Saarland University, Germany) Hiroshi
  Saruwatari (Nara Institute of Technology, Japan) Mike Seltzer
  (Microsoft Research, USA) Bhiksha Raj (Carnegie Mellon, USA)
