Speaker and Language Characterization SIG

Odyssey: The Speaker and Language Recognition Workshop

The Speaker and Language Recognition Workshop is an ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop held in cooperation with the ISCA SPeaker and Language Characterization (SpLC) SIG. The need for fast, efficient, accurate, and robust means of recognizing people and languages is of growing importance for commercial, forensic, and government applications. The aim of this workshop is to continue to foster interactions among researchers in speaker and language recognition as the successor of previous successful events held in Martigny (1994), Avignon (1998), Crete (2001), Toledo (2004), San Juan (2006), Stellenbosch (2008), Brno (2010) and Singapore (2012). The next workshop will be held in Joensuu, Finland (June 16-19, 2014).
