 Call for Papers for Special Session “Mixlingual Speech Processing”

Introduction The modern society demonstrates clear mutual influence among languages, e.g., Mandarin to language minor languages in China, and English to other languages in the world. This leads to a clear mixlingual phenomenon, i.e., some words of a foreign (or target, embedded) language are embedded in a host (or source, matrix) language. This mixlingual effect causes significant problems in various speech processing tasks. This special session invites papers on but not limited to the following topics:

 Mixlingual phonetic and phonological analysis  Mixlingual speech recognition  Mixlingual speech synthesis  Language turn detection  Mixlingual language understanding

To assist the research on mixlingual speech processing, the special session offers a large Chinese-English mixlingual speech database OC16-CE80 (provided by Speechocean) that involves 80h of speech data and the associated resources. Participants to the special session can apply for OC16-CE80 for free if they need data to evaluate their research.
