 ACL/COLING-98

 Workshop on

 PARTIALLY AUTOMATED TECHNIQUES FOR TRANSCRIBING
 NATURALLY OCCURRING, CONTINUOUS SPEECH

 August 16, 1998 (following ACL/COLING-98)
 University of Montreal, Montreal (Quebec, Canada)


 CALL FOR PAPERS



DESCRIPTION
- ---------

The development of robust systems for speech analysis and synthesis
depends crucially on the availability of well-annotated corpora of
naturally occurring, continuous speech. Yet existing speech corpora
are rarely well-annotated. A key to proper annotation is the
availability of partially automated systems for linking selected
portions of a visual display of speech to the corresponding
transcriptions. To be of practical use, such systems must be able to
handle large files of digitized speech and they should permit
transcriptions at different levels of analysis.

 This workshop will be devoted to the presentation and discussion
of papers and software demonstrations which reflect the current state
of the art. We invite proposals of up to 800 words which address the
development, use, evaluation, or potential commercial application of
such systems.



SUBMISSIONS
- ---------

Only email submissions in LaTeX or Ascii will be accepted.
Authors should submit an abstract of no more than 800
words to:

 trans98cs.concordia.ca

Style files and templates for LaTeX submissions can be
