COCOSDA is an international organization for coordinating the

as satellite events of ICSLP and Eurospeech, now Interspeech. This
year, the workshop will be organised on Monday, 4th October at
Interspeech 2004 - ICSLP conference in Korea.

COCOSDA is organized with a structure which reflects the two
dimensions of its functionalities: ''Topic Domains'' and ''Regional
Programs''. The former considers the dynamic technology environments,
while the latter addresses the regional efforts and differences.

Four topic domains have been established:
- Evaluation of Speech Understanding/Dialogue Systems, 
- Multi-Modal Corpora, 
- Corpus Annotation Tools,
- Local Languages.

Six regional programs are currently present:
- North America, 
- Europe, 
- Asia, 
- Oceania, 
- Latin America,
- Africa.

You are invited to participate in the workshop, which will be
organized to address all issues relevant to COCOSDA. The final program
of the workshop is under construction (see below a first draft) and
will be circulated shortly.

It includes pre-organized reports for all regional programs mentioned
above and other relevant reports/discussions, plus presentations from
the open-call submissions.
