Dear colleagues and friends of the ESSV!
we are happy to announce that the 35. edition of ESSV will take place in March 06.-08. 2024 in Regensburg at the Eastern Bavarian Technical University of Applied Sciences Regensburg.
The ESSV conference series spans a wide range of fields that concern the creation, analysis, and (digital) processing of speech signals, with a special focus on applied research, i.e. practical applications and technologies. We therefore ask for contributions (in German or English) for example on the following topics:
- Speech synthesis and speech generation;
- Speech dialogue systems, also multimodal ones;
- Human-robot and human-computer interaction;
- Quality assessment of spoken language and speech technology;
- Speech recognition and natural language comprehension;
- Nonspeech signals related to speech: Music, biosignals and technical signals;
- Applications in medical, nursing, and rehabilitation technology;
- Cognitive and neural systems;
- Speech technology in industrial and home sectors;
- Measurement, processing and modeling of articulation;
- Phonetic, syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic aspects of speech technology;
- Studies and applications of paralinguistics;
- Modeling of speech acquisition processes;
- Acoustic and visual pattern recognition related to speech communication.
Contributions on related topics are also very welcome. We particularly encourage students to submit papers and apply for ESSV's annual "Best Student Paper Award", which will be presented on the last day of the conference. In addition, guests from research, industry and public institutions as well as interested students are warmly welcome even without an own conference paper. All accepted papers will be published in a conference volume, which will appear in the series "Studientexte zur Sprachkommunikation" (TUDpress). They will also be available online with referencing via DOIs and URNs.
We look forward to welcome you in Regensburg in March 2024 and look forward to many interesting contributions.
Thank you very much, Timo Baumann
