The Interspeech meetings are considered to be the top international conference in speech and language technology, with more than 1000 attendees from universities, industry, and government agencies. They are unique in that they bring together faculty and students from universities with researchers and developers from government and industry to discuss the latest research advances, technological innovations, and products. The conference offers the prospect of meeting the future leaders of our field, exchanging ideas, and exploring opportunities for collaboration, employment, and sales through keynote talks, tutorials, technical sessions, exhibits, and poster sessions. In recent years the Interspeech meetings have taken place in a number of exciting venues including most recently Lisbon, Jeju Island (Korea), Geneva, Denver, Aalborg (Denmark), and Beijing. ISCA, together with the Interspeech 2006 - ICSLP organizing committee, would like to encourage submission of papers for the upcoming conference in the following topics of interest: Linguistics, Phonetics, and Phonology Prosody Discourse and Dialog Speech Production Speech Perception Physiology and Pathology Paralinguistic and Nonlinguistic Information (e.g. Emotional Speech) Signal Analysis and Processing Speech Coding and Transmission Spoken Language Generation and Synthesis Speech Recognition and Understanding Spoken Dialog Systems Single-channel and Multi-channel Speech Enhancement Language Modeling Language and Dialect Identification Speaker Characterization and Recognition Acoustic Signal Segmentation and Classification Spoken Language Acquisition, Development and Learning Multi-Modal Processing Multi-Lingual Processing Spoken Language Information Retrieval Spoken Language Translation Resources and Annotation Assessment and Standards Education Spoken Language Processing for the Challenged and Aged Other Applications Other Relevant Topics SPECIAL SESSIONS In addition to the regular sessions, a series of special sessions has been planned for the meeting.
