Speech and Computer. 21st International Conference, SPECOM 2019, Istanbul, Turkey, August 20–25, 2019, Proceedings
This volume contains a collection of submitted papers presented at the conference,
which were thoroughly reviewed by members of the Program Committee consisting of
more than 100 top specialists, as well as an invited paper by Prof. Scharenborg. Each
paper was reviewed, single blind, by two to four committee members (three reviewers
on the average) and then discussed by the program chairs. In total, 57 papers were
selected by the Program Committee for presentation at the SPECOM Conference.
A total of 126 submissions were received and evaluated for SPECOM/ICR. The
conference sessions were thematically organized, into Audio Signal Processing,
Automatic Speech Recognition, Speaker Recognition, Computational Paralinguistics,
Speech Synthesis, Sign Language and Multimodal Processing, and Speech and
Language Resources. An increasing number of papers used deep neural network-based
approaches across these themes.
