2-2 An ISCA Sig on robust speech?

Following the recent surge of interest for robust speech processing algorithms and devices both in the academia and in the industry, we are proposing to create an ISCA special interest group (SIG) on robust speech processing.

What about?
- robustness to noise, reverberation, inter- and intra-speaker variability, speaking style...
- application to speech enhancement, ASR, speaker recognition...

What for?
- facilitate communication between us,
- share problems, resources and good practices,
- promote our area within the larger communities involved (speech, audio, machine learning) and the industry,
- support initiatives (special sessions, workshops, challenges, etc),
- ultimately increase funding and foster new research directions.

Before submitting a formal proposal to ISCA, we would like to collect feedback from the community about the various possible choices and directions and gather a list of interested colleagues.

If you are interested, we invite you to come and meet us during Interspeech on Monday September 10 at 18:15 in the Pavilion East room on the Plaza Level at the Hilton. If you cannot attend this meeting, just email us to be counted in.

Best regards,

Ramón Fernandez Astudillo - L2F INESC-ID Lisboa, Portugal
