Reminder: Abstracts are due at the end of this week! UK Speech Meeting Announcement and Call for Abstracts One Day Meeting for Young Speech Researchers Thursday 22nd April 2004 University College London www2.cmp.uea.ac.uk/people/sjc/one-day-meeting/ [The usual apologies for multiple postings.] Submissions are invited for a one day meeting to be held at University College, London, on Thursday April 22nd 2004. This meeting is an opportunity for graduate students and new researchers from industry and universities to discuss their work in progress with speech scientists and technologists from across the UK. It follows the format of the successful meeting held last year. We welcome poster presentations on all aspects of speech research, analysis and processing including theoretical work and speech technology. This year we particularly welcome oral presentations on “What industry wants from speech research” and there will be keynote talks from industrialists working in the speech processing industry. This is also an informal meeting for members of the UK speech research community. Preference will be given to submissions from the UK, although submissions from elsewhere are welcomed. It is not intended to rigorously peer review contributions, but if the meeting is over-subscribed, the organisers will select papers on the basis of their merit and likely interest to the community. No complete proceedings will be issued, but a one page summary of each talk or poster will be available at the meeting and on the web. Conference Format The format will be a mixture of talks (number to be confirmed) and posters (about twenty) held over the day with no parallel sessions. The poster sessions will be held at the beginning and end of the day to give participants flexibility of arrival and departure. Location The Haldane Theatre, Wolfson House, 4 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE. Cost There is no charge for the meeting. Registration Although the conference is free, you do need to register before April 13th so that we have some idea of numbers.
