Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The 2nd International Workshop on Speech and Multimodal Interaction in Assistive Environments (SMIAE 2013) will be held on June 13 at the 2013 Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies (NAACL HLT 2013), on June 9-14, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

The SMIAE 2013 workshop will focus on all issues, applications, and development of various tools in the field of Speech and Multimodal Interaction in Assistive Environments. It will be concerned with all topics which fit within the purview of speech and multimodal communication in environments suitable for the elderly and people with physical or cognitive disabilities. Assistive environments are an application area of the research field of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL). This research field promotes intelligent assistant systems for a better, healthier, and safer life in the preferred living environments through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Human-computer and human-robot interaction are key technological tools in the area of Assistive Environments, and as such the workshop will particularly aim to draw together speech and multimodal work in these areas. Moreover, both theoretical and applied computational work regarding multimodal interaction in assistive environments will be welcome at this workshop.
