AVSP 2011 The 11th International Conference on Auditory-Visual Speech Processing

August 31 – September 3, 2011
Volterra, Italy

The 11th international conference on Auditory-Visual Speech Processing (AVSP) will be held from August 31 to September 3, 2011, directly following the INTERSPEECH2011 conference.

AVSP is a uniquely interdisciplinary conference, being focused on synergy effects of auditory and visual speech information on human perception, machine recognition, and human-machine interaction. AVSP conferences have attracted a lot of researchers in various fields, such as psychologists, computer engineers, neuroscientists, linguists, phoneticians, and robot engineers.

The AVSP2011 conference will consist of oral and poster presentations, a demo session and lectures by invited speakers (announced later).

Submission of papers or demo proposals are invited in any areas of auditory-visual speech processing including but not limited to:

  • Audio-visual speech synthesis
  • Audio-visual speech recognition by humans and machines
  • Models of multimodal integration
  • Multimodal processing of spoken events
  • Cross-linguistic studies of audio-visual speech processing
  • Developmental studies of audio-visual speech processing
  • Role of gestures accompanying speech
  • Audio-visual prosody
  • Modeling, animation and recognition of gestures and expressions
  • Neurophysiology and neuropsychology of audition and vision
  • Scene analysis using audio and visual information
  • Novel techniques for animation of talking faces
  • Data collection and corpora for audio-visual speech processing
