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


  • 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.
