VENUE: The workshop will be held in the Room Opal 106, at the Singapore Expo (same building of Interspeech).


Invited speaker:

Prof. Nick Campbell


Nick Campbell is SFI Stokes Professor of Speech & Communication Technology at Trinity College Dublin (The University of Dublin) in Ireland. He received his Ph.D. degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of Sussex in the U.K., and was previously engaged at the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, (as nick@nict.go.jp) and as Chief Researcher in the Department of Acoustics and Speech Research, Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (as nick@atr.jp), Kyoto, Japan, where he also served as Research Director for the JST/CREST Expressive Speech Processing and the SCOPE “Robot’s Ears” projects. He was first invited as a Research Fellow at the IBM U.K. Scientific Centre, where he developed algorithms for speech synthesis, and later at the AT&T Bell Laboratories, where he worked on the synthesis of Japanese. He served as Senior Linguist at the Edinburgh University Centre for Speech Technology Research before joining ATR in 1990. His research interests are based on large speech databases, and include nonverbal speech processing, concatenative speech synthesis, and prosodic information modeling. He spends his spare time working with postgraduate students as Visiting Professor at the School of Information Science, Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Nara, Japan, and was also Visiting Professor at Kobe University, Kobe, Japan for 10 years.

The MA3HMI workshop aims to bring together researchers working on the analysis of multimodal recordings as a means to develop systems that can interact with humans.

For this edition, we encourage researchers in speech technologies and natural language processing to present and discuss their ideas on multimodal analyses for real time applications.

We solicit papers that concern the different phases of the development of such human-machine interfaces, including the recording and online analysis of multimodal conversations, the modeling of the dialogue and the user evaluation of such systems. Tools and systems that address real-time conversations with artificial agents are also within the topic on the workshop.
