(apologies for multiple copies) EARLY REGISTRATION DEADLINE: JUNE 30, 2005 Interspeech 2005 / Eurospeech September 4--8, 2005 Lisbon, Portugal www.interspeech2005.org CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ISCA, together with the Interspeech 2005 - Eurospeech organizing committee, would like to encourage participation in the upcoming conference. Interspeech 2005 - Eurospeech is the 9th biennal conference of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA) and the sixth in the annual series of Interspeech events, after Beijing, Aalborg, Denver, Geneva and Jeju. This year's theme is "Ubiquitous Speech Processing", a long-term goal for this new millenium, which is also the topic of the panel of our 4th and last plenary session. The conference follows the typical format of Interspeech events, with parallel oral and poster sessions, and a first Tutorial Day program featuring six in-depth tutorials from world-class experts in their field. The conference will be held September 4-8 in Lisbon, Portugal, at Centro Cultural de Belem, located in the city's most renowned historic area, next to the Jeronimos Monastery and facing the river Tagus. Perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon is a city like no other. The city center is a buzzing grid of grand streets with all the trappings of any other Western European city, but also rumbling old trams, antiquated funiculars and elevators that help negotiate Lisbon's steep hills. The Technical Program will include parallel oral and poster sessions, totaling 781 papers, selected from 1261 regular full paper submissions. Additionally, it will include 10 Special Sessions on new, emerging areas of interest to the spoken language processing community.
