INTERSPEECH 2007 - CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS - CALL FOR TUTORIALS August 27-31 2007 Antwerp, Belgium http://www.interspeech2007.org INTERSPEECH 2007 is the eighth conference in the annual series of INTERSPEECH events and also the tenth biennial EUROSPEECH conference.

The INTERSPEECH meetings are considered to be the top international conferences in spoken language processing, with more than 1000 attendees from universities, industry, and government agencies. 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.
