-------------------------------------------------------------- 2nd Call for Papers: Speaker Classification (Project Part) for a book edited by Christian Müller and Susanne Schötz -------------------------------------------------------------- To achieve an optimal balance of topics, we still call for contributions (see restricted list of topics below). * Introduction * Christian Müller from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and Susanne Schötz from the University of Lund (Sweden) are editing a collection on speaker classification which is published by Springer in the LNCS/LNAI series (section 'State-of-the-Art surveys' respectively 'Hot-Topics'). In parallel to the printed book, it is published in full-text electronic form via the Springer internet platform www.springerlink.com. read more about the book : http://www.dfki.de/%7Ecmueller/lnai read this cfp : http://www.dfki.de/%7Ecmueller/lnai_proj We invite contributions in a variety of areas related to speaker classification, including artificial intelligence (machine learning, pattern classification), natural language technology as well as phonetics. The term speaker classification is thereby defined as the process of assigning a vector of speech features to a discrete speaker class. * What is the 'Project Part' ? * In contrast to the 'conceptual part' which encompasses overview and introductory chapters, the project part incorporates separate and self-contained contributions of specific speaker classification projects. The formats and dimensions are projected to be comparable with journal articles or full conference papers. The papers are selected by the editors according to their quality, their relevance for the book as well as the general diversification of topics. In comparison to conference proceedings, the contributions of the project part of this book will be more comparable and contain more cross-references. They aim to provide examples of the concepts described in the first part. Authors should therefore allow an editorial loop. * List of Topics * The topics which are marked (*) qualify for a later submission due (see below). identifying the speakers identity accent identification dialect identification sociolect identification* language identification* age and gender recognition emotion recognition* recognition of cognitive state (e.g. working memory load)* acquiring any other kind of information about the speaker on the basis of her/his speech or speaking behavior* Please note that we explicitly allow contributions that have already been published in conference proceedings or journals. Novel papers are welcome as well, of course. If you submit an abstract of already published concepts, please refer to the proceedings or journal. * Submission Procedure * If you are interested in contributing to the book, please send an abstract to Christian.Muellerdfki.de. The abstract has not to be formatted. Feel free to send .doc, .pdf, .txt or .tex files. * Important Dates * abstract submissions due: April 30, 2006. For specific topics (see above): June 30, 2006. notification of acceptance: June 1, 2006 For specific topics (see above): July 15, 2006 full paper manuscripts due: August 1, 2006 For specific topics (see above): August 31st, 2006 camera read versions due: open, scheduled for September 2006 publication of the book: open, scheduled for October 2006 For more information, please contact Christian Müller. * Formatting Instructions * For formatting the full manuscripts, please follow the formatting instructions provided by Springer.

The contributions must not be longer than 15 pages. * Additional Instructions for Authors * 1) due dates As indicated above, the due dates for the full version of the project part articles is August the 1st while the conceptual part chapters are due August the 31st. To provide a consistent cross referencing throughout the book, the conceptual part authors will need some time to integrate the specific topics of your articles into their chapters. I kindly ask you to indicate as soon as possible if you don't manage to complete your article until August 1st. 2) editorial loop For the same reasons (cross referencing and consistency) it might be necessary to introduce an editorial loop which means that your article might be altered slightly by the editors. Of course, the alterations will be sent to you for approval. 3) copyrights We explicitly allowed articles that describe already published work. If that is the case with your article, please make sure, that no copyright from previous publications are violated. Please indicate the original publication as a footnote on the first page of your article. -- Dr. Christian Müller German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) Fon +49-681-302-2474 Fax +49-681-302-4136 Christian.Mueller_(on)_dfki.de http://www.dfki.de/%7Ecmueller
