Subject: Preliminary Announcement: SST-94

The Fifth Australian International Conference on Speech Science and
Technology (SST-94) is organized with a multidisciplinary perspective
to provide excellent opportunities for the exchange of ideas and
facilitate the interaction between professionals from many diverse
areas of expertise including engineering, mathematics, communications,
computer science, intelligent information processing,, acoustics,
phonetics and linguistics, psychology, physiology, speech and hearing
disorders and medical prosthetics. This ensures that SST-94 is a true
reflection of the interdisciplinary nature of speech as an area of
scientific and industrial endeavour.

The primary goal of SST-94 is to provide a forum to promote
interaction between Australian and overseas researchers in the area of
speech science and technology. The conference is structured to cater
for the needs of both industry, government organizations and academia
by providing a wide range of topics for discussion and presentation.

The proposed categories for papers presented at SST-94 include, but
are not limited to:

 Automatic Speech Recognition
 Text-to-Speech Synthesis
 Acoustic Phonetics and Prosody
 Speech Signal Analysis
 Speech Databases
 Voice Response Systems
 Human Speech Processing: Audition, Perception, Cognition
 Speech Processing using Artificial Intelligence
 Speech Pattern Matching, Statistical Modelling and
Artificial Neural Networks.
