7-3 CfP IEEE JSTSP Special Issue on Spoofing and Countermeasures for Automatic Speaker Verification (extended deadline)

IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing
Special Issue on
Spoofing and Countermeasures for Automatic Speaker Verification

Automatic speaker verification (ASV) offers a low-cost and flexible biometric solution to
person authentication. While the reliability of ASV systems is now considered sufficient
to support mass-market adoption, there are concerns that the technology is vulnerable to
spoofing, also referred to as presentation attacks. Replayed, synthesized and converted
speech spoofing attacks can all project convincing, high-quality speech signals that are
representative of other, specific speakers and thus present a genuine threat to the
reliability of ASV systems.

Recent years have witnessed a movement in the community to develop spoofing
countermeasures, or presentation attack detection (PAD) technology to help protect ASV
systems from fraud. These efforts culminated in the first standard evaluation platform
for the assessment of spoofing and countermeasures of automatic speaker verification ?
the Automatic Speaker Verification Spoofing and Countermeasures Challenge (ASVspoof) ?
which was held as a special session at Interspeech 2015.

This special issue is expected to present original papers describing the very latest
developments in spoofing and countermeasures for ASV. The focus of the special issue
includes, but is not limited to the following topics related to spoofing and
countermeasures for ASV:

- vulnerability analysis of previously unconsidered spoofing methods;
- advanced methods for standalone countermeasures;
- advanced methods for joint ASV and countermeasure modelling;
- information theoretic approaches for the assessment of spoofing and countermeasures;
- spoofing and countermeasures in adverse acoustic and channel conditions;
- generalized and speaker-dependent countermeasures;
- speaker obfuscation, impersonation, de-identification, disguise, evasion and adapted
- analysis and comparison of human performance in the face of spoofing;
- new evaluation protocols, datasets, and performance metrics for the assessment of
spoofing and countermeasures for ASV;
- countermeasure methods using other modality or multimodality that are applicable to
speaker verification

Also invited are submissions of exceptional quality with a tutorial or overview nature.
Creative papers outside the areas listed above but related to the overall scope of the
special issue are also welcome. Prospective authors can contact the Guest Editors to
ascertain interest on such topics.

Prospective authors should visit for submission
information. Manuscripts should be submitted at and will be peer reviewed according to
standard IEEE processes.

- Manuscript submission due: August 15, 2016 (extended)
- First review completed: October 15, 2016
