Challenges in analysis and processing of spontaneous speech

In view of the rapid growth of various aspects in speech research, we will address the issue of challenges in the analysis and processing of spontaneous speech. Topics include a wide range of research from phonology through speech production and perception processing to speech technology. All submissions are expected to be related to events, processes and applications of spontaneous speech. The workshop will be a unique exchange forum for researchers working in all kinds of research fields focusing on relevant questions of spontaneous speech. Postgraduate students are particularly encouraged to attend the workshop. The organizers will offer the ‘CAPSS Prize of the best young presenter’. This workshop is intended as the first event of a series of CAPSS workshops planned to take place in every two years in the future.

The first workshop will take place May 14–May 17 2017 in Budapest, Hungary. The event is organized by the Department of Phonetics of the Institute for Linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The presenters will be able to choose between to options for publishing the paper format of their works: either in a special issue of the journal The Phonetician or in an edited online book.
