Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

In recent years considerable progress has been made in speech processing and interaction as well as in multimodality. However, the application field of Assistive Environments has only recently become a focus for the speech and multimodality research community.

This workshop will focus on issues, applications, and development tools in the field of Speech and Multimodal Interaction in Assistive Environments (SMIAE). 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 age-related physical or cognitive disabilities. Assistive environments are an application area of the research field of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL).

This research field is supported through a European technology and innovation funding programme, which 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.
