El próximo martes, 26 de octubre de 2010, comenzando a las 18:00 horas, en el Aula B4 del Edificio García Redondo (B) de la ETSI de Telecomunicación de la UPM, se impartirán las dos conferencias siguientes:

"Speech Technologies, Platforms and Standards: Recent Advances"

Abstract: At the end of the last century, the landscape of speech applications was abruptly changed due to the convergence of several factors: the maturity of speech technologies and the advent of standards and platforms, e.g. VoiceXML and voice browsing. The talk will give a clear picture of the current status of technologies and platforms in use in today speech applications and highlights recent evolutions on voice and multimodal standards.

Speaker: Paolo Baggia is currently Director of International Standards of Loquendo (www.loquendo.com) and actively involved in W3C and the VoiceXML Forum, where he is a member of the Board of Directors.

"Tecnologías y Aplicaciones de los Sistemas de Reconocimiento de Locutores"

En esta charla, Luis Buera, responsable de investigación de Agnitio (http://www.agnitio.es), empresa puntera en soluciones de biometría de voz para el sector de la seguridad pública, presentará las líneas de investigación actuales en tecnologías de Reconocimiento de Locutor y su ámbitos de aplicación más relevantes.


La asistencia a estas dos conferencias será libre hasta completar aforo.

Multimodal Corpora: Advances in Capturing, Coding and Analyzing Multimodality

M. Kipp, J.-C. Martin, P. Patrizia and D. Heylen

18 May 2010, Malta

This workshop will be held in conjunction with the 7th International Conference for Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC 2010).

In 2010, we are aiming for a wide cross-section of the field, with contributions on collection efforts, coding, validation and analysis methods, as well as actual tools and applications of multimodal corpora. However, we want to put emphasis on the fact that there have been significant advances in capture technology that make highly accurate data available to the broader research community. Examples are the tracking of face, gaze, hands, body and the recording of articulated full-body motion using motion capture. These data are much more accurate and complete than simple videos that are traditionally used in the field and therefore, will have a lasting impact on multimodality research. However, the richness of the signals and the complexity of the recording process urgently call for an exchange of state-of-the-art information regarding recording and coding practices, new visualization and coding tools, advances in automatic coding and analyzing corpora.

Workshop Themes
Papers may discuss theories, applications, evaluation, limitations, general tools and techniques.
Discussion papers that critically evaluate approaches or processing strategies and prototype
demonstrations are especially welcome.
- Speech recognition and semantic analysis
- Dialogue management
- Adaptive dialogue modelling
- Recognition of emotions from speech, gestures, facial expressions and physiological data
- User modelling
- Planning and reasoning capabilities for coordination and conflict description
- Conflict resolution in complex multi-level decisions
- Multi-modality such as graphics, gesture and speech for input and output
- Fusion and information management
- Learning and adaptability
- Visual processing and recognition for advanced human-computer interaction
- Databases and corpora
- Evaluation strategies and paradigms
- Prototypes and products

Workshop Programme
The format of the workshop will be a non-overlapping mixture of oral and poster sessions. A number
of tutorial lectures will be given by internationally recognised experts from the area of Spoken
Dialogue Systems.
All poster sessions will be opened by an oral summary by the session chair. A number of poster
sessions will be succeeded by a discussion session focussing on the subject of the session. It is our
belief that this general format will ensure a lively and valuable workshop.
The organisers would like to encourage researchers and industrialists to take the opportunity to bring
their applications as well as their demonstrator prototypes and design tools for demonstration to the
workshop. If sufficient interest is shown, a special demonstrator/poster session will be organised and
followed by a discussion session.
The official language of the workshop is English. Authors of selected papers accepted for the
conference proceedings will be considered to submit extended versions of their papers for
publication in a book to be published by Springer. Prospective authors will be contacted by the
volume editors.
