|Description:||Change of Editor for Computer Speech and Language
Volume 17, Issue 4 of Computer Speech and Language marks the end of Professor Mari Ostendorf's tenure as US Editor of Computer Speech and Language. In the three and a half years that she has held the office, she has had a considerable impact on the journal. She has worked hard to encourage special issues and she provided the primary editorial support for our recent issues on Spoken Language Generation and New Computational Paradigms for Acoustic Modeling. She was instrumental in attracting more women to the editorial board and she introduced and subsequently managed the annual CSL best paper award. These contributions have all been greatly appreciated. Although Mari is stepping down as US Editor, she will continue to support the journal as a member of the Editorial Board.
The new US Editor of Computer Speech and Language will be Dr Andreas Stolcke who holds joint positions at SRI International at Menlo Park and the International Computer Science Institute at Berkeley. Andreas is particularly welcome to the Computer Speech and Language Editorial team because he combines a strong background in traditional speech processing technologies with a broad knowledge of computational linguistics and machine learning. His specific interests include statistical language modelling, speech understanding, recognition of spontaneous speech and dialogue modelling. His arrival further strengthens the position of Computer Speech and Language as spanning the full range of speech and language research, and especially the interface between them.
