Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Following previous editions, IberSPEECH’2018 will be held in Barcelona, from 21 to 23 November 2018. The IberSPEECH event—the fourth of its kind using this name—brings together the X Jornadas en Tecnologías del Habla and the V Iberian SLTech Workshop events.  The conference provides a platform for scientific and industrial discussion and exchange around Iberian languages, with the following main topics of interests:

  1. Speech technology and applications
  2. Human speech production, perception, and communication
  3. Natural language processing and applications
  4. Speech, language and multimodality
  5. Resources, standardization, and evaluation

The main goal of this Special Issue is to present the latest advances in research and novel applications of speech and language processing, paying special attention to those focused on Iberian languages. We invite researchers interested in these fields to contribute to this issue, which cover all fields of IberSPEECH2018 http://iberspeech2018.talp.cat/index.php/call-for-papers/. Papers submitted from the conference will enjoy a plenary 10% discount. (The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in Applied Sciences is 1260 CHF (Swiss Francs) for submissions before the end of December 2018 and 1350 CHF (Swiss Francs) after 1st January 2019)
