7-3 CSL Special Issue on Speech Production in Speech Technologies DEADLINE EXT.


CSL Special Issue on Speech Production in Speech Technologies

The use of speech production knowledge and data to enhance speech recognition and other technologies is being actively pursued by a number of widely dispersed research groups using different approaches.  The types of speech production information may include continuous articulatory measurements or discrete-valued articulatory or phonological features.  These quantities might be directly measured, manually labeled, or unobserved but considered to be latent variables in a statistical model.  Applications of production-based ideas include improved speech recognition, silent speech interface, language training tools, and clinical models of speech disorders. 

The goal of this special issue is to highlight the current state of research efforts that use speech production data or knowledge.  The range of data, techniques, and applications currently being explored is growing, and is also benefiting from new ideas in machine learning, making this a particularly exciting time for this research. 

A recent workshop, the 2013 Interspeech satellite workshop on Speech Production in Automatic Speech Recognition (SPASR), as well as the special session on Articulatory Data Acquisition and Processing, brought together a number of researchers in this area.  This special issue will expand on the topics included in these events and beyond. 

Submissions focusing on research in this area are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

- The collection, labeling, and use of speech production data 

- Acoustic-to-articulatory inversion 

- Speech production models in speech recognition, synthesis, voice conversion, and other technologies 

- Silent speech interfaces 

- Atypical speech production and pathology 

- Articulatory phonology and models of speech production 


Submission procedure

Prospective authors should follow the regular guidelines of the Computer Speech and Language Journal for electronic submission ( During submission authors must select 'SI: Speech Production in ST' as Article Type. 


Review procedure

All manuscripts will be submitted through the editorial submission system and will be reviewed by at least 3 experts.
