Isabel Trancoso received the Licenciado, Mestre, Doutor and Agregado

respectively. She has been a lecturer at this University since 1979,

researcher at INESC ID Lisbon, having launched the speech processing
group, now restructured as Spoken Language Systems Lab, in 1990. Her
first research topic was medium-to-low bit rate speech coding. From
October 1984 through June 1985, she worked on this topic at AT&T Bell
Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey. Her current scope is much
broader, encompassing many areas in speech recognition and synthesis,
with a special emphasis on tools and resources for the Portuguese
language. She was a member of the ISCA (International Speech
Communication Association) Board (1993-1998), the IEEE Speech
Technical Committee (since 1999) and the Permanent Council for the
Organization of the International Conferences on Spoken Language

Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing (2003-2005),
Member-at-Large of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Board of
Governors (2006-2008), and President of ISCA (2007-2009). She
chaired the Organizing Committee of the Eurospeech'2005 Conference
