 CALL FOR PAPERS

 THIRD IEEE WORKSHOP ON
 INTERACTIVE VOICE TECHNOLOGY
 FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS APPLICATIONS

 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

 September 30 - October 1, 1996
 The AT&T Learning Center
 300 N Maple Ave
 Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 USA
 Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society

The third of a series of IEEE workshops on Interactive Voice
Technology for Telecommunications Applications will be held at the
AT&T Learning Center, Basking Ridge, New Jersey, from September 30 -
October 1, 1996. The conference venue is on 35 semi-rural acres and
is close enough (1 hour) for side trips to New York City. Our workshop
will be held immediately before ICSLP '96 in Philadelphia, PA,
approximately 80 miles from our location.

The IVTTA workshop brings together application researchers planning to
conduct or who have recently conducted field trials of new
applications of speech recognition, speaker indentity verification,
text-to-speech synthesis over the telephone network. The workshop
will explore promising opportunities for applications and attempt to
identify areas where further research is needed.

Topic areas of interest:
- ASR/verification systems for the cellular environment
- User interface / human factors of applying speech to
telecommunications tasks
- Language modeling and dialog design for "audio-only" communication
- Experimental interactive systems for telecommunication applications
- Experience in deployment & assessment of deployed ASR/verification
systems
- Text-to-speech applications in the network
- Speech enhancement for telecommunications applications
- Telephone services for the disabled
- Architectures for speech-based services
