1992 International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP)

technical sessions with contributed papers (both oral and poster).

Prospective authors are invited to propose papers in any of the
following technical areas relevant to Spoken Language (SL):
phonetics & phonology; dialects & speech styles in SL processing;
production, perception, analysis, or synthesis of SL; speech
coding & transmission; automatic speech recognition & understanding;
analysis/synthesis of discourse; speaker identification/verification;
neural networks & stochastic modelling for SL processing; hardware/
systems for SL processing; performance/evaluation and human factors;
SL databases; hearing/speech impairments and aids; SL acquisition
and learning.

Submit four copies of a 400-word, 1-page abstract. It should
begin with the title of the paper, name(s) and address(es) of
the author(s) and the relevant technical area of the paper.
