SLPAT-2013, 4th annual workshop on Speech and Language Processing
for Assistive Technologies Grenoble, France, August 21-22, 2013

We are pleased to announce the first call for papers for the
fourth Workshop on Speech and Language Processing for Assistive
Technologies (SLPAT), to be co-located with Interspeech 2013 in
Grenoble in August, 2013. The deadline for submission of papers
and demo proposals is 17 May and 31 May, respectively. Full
details on the workshop, topics of interest, timeline and
formatting of regular papers is here:


This 2-day workshop will bring together researchers from all
areas of speech and language technology with a common interest in
making everyday life more accessible for people with physical,
cognitive, sensory, emotional, or developmental disabilities.
This workshop will provide an opportunity for individuals from
both research communities, and the individuals with whom they are
working, to assist to share research findings, and to discuss
present and future challenges and the potential for collaboration
and progress. General topics include but are not limited to:

 - Automated processing of sign language
 - Speech synthesis and speech recognition for physical or
   cognitive impairments
 - Speech transformation for improved intelligibility
 - Speech and Language Technologies for Assisted Living
 - Translation systems; to and from speech, text, symbols and
   sign language
 - Novel modeling and machine learning approaches for AAC/AT
 - Text processing for improved comprehension, e.g., sentence
   simplification or text-to-speech
 - Silent speech: speech technology based on sensors without
 - Symbol languages, sign languages, nonverbal communication
 - Dialogue systems and natural language generation for assistive
 - Multimodal user interfaces and dialogue systems adapted to
   assistive technologies
 - NLP for cognitive assistance applications
 - Presentation of graphical information for people with visual
 - Speech and NLP applied to typing interface applications
 - Brain-computer interfaces for language processing applications
 - Speech, natural language and multimodal interfaces to
   assistive technologies
 - Assessment of speech and language processing within the
   context of assistive technology
 - Web accessibility; text simplification, summarization, and
   adapted presentation modes such as speech, signs or symbols
 - Deployment of speech and NLP tools in the clinic or in the
 - Linguistic resources; corpora and annotation schemes
 - Evaluation of systems and components, including methodology
 - Anything included in this year's special topic
 - Other topics in Augmentative and Alternative Communication

This year we are introducing a special topic, which is Smart
Homes and ambient intelligent technology applied to augmentative
communication. Relevant research topics would include (but are
not limited to):

 - Automatic Speech recognition in multi-source environments
 - Distant speech recognition
 - Understanding, modelling or recognition of aged speech
 - Speech analysis in the case of elderly with impairments, early
   recognition of speech capability loss
 - Assistive speech technology
 - Multimodal speech recognition (context-aware ASR)
 - Multimodal emotion recognition
 - Audio scene and smart home context analysis
 - Applications of speech technology (ASR, dialogue, synthesis)
   for ambient assisted living

Important dates:

 - May 17: Paper due date
 - May 31: Demo due date
 - Jun 21: Notification of acceptance
 - Aug 21-22: SLPAT workshop
