Fifth Joint Conference on Information Sciences (JCIS
2000)
Taj Mahal, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA

International Workshop on Intelligent Systems for Speech and
Language
(WISSL'2000):
Speech and Language Acquisition, Recognition, and Understanding in Brains
and Machines

February 27 to March 3, 2000

Theme and Scope
The workshop is planned to become a forum for presenting and demonstrating
the latest results in the area of speech and language processing, both in
humans and machines. The emphasis will be on artificial and biological
neural networks in relation to adaptive speech and language processing.

Topics of interest
Speech and language processing in the human brain
Speech and language acquisition
Artificial cochlea
Auditory features
Signal processing
Adaptive systems
Statistical and HMM for speech and language
Neural networks for speech and language
Fuzzy systems for speech and language
Hybrid systems for speech and language
Adaptive systems
Continuous speech recognition
Language modelling
Language translation
Multi-lingual systems
Speech synthesis
Multi-modal interfaces
Integrating speech, image, text and video information
Speech and language processing on the WWW
Agent-based systems for speech and language processing
Hardware systems for speech and language
Applications of speech and language systems in Business
Applications of speech and language systems in Education
Applications of speech and language systems in Communication

Paper submission
Papers must be received by the 1st of September 1999. They will be reviewed
by senior researchers in the field and the authors will be informed about
the decision of the review process by 1st of November 1999. The accepted
papers must be submitted in a camera-ready format by 1st of January 2000.
All accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings. As the
conference is a multi-disciplinary meeting the papers are required to be
comprehensible to a wider rather than to a very specialized audience. Papers
will be presented at
the Workshop either in an oral or in a poster session. Please submit five
copies of the paper written in English on A4-format white paper with 2.5 cm
margins on all four sides, in two column format, on not more than 4 pages,
single-spaced, in Times or similar font of 10 points, and printed on one
side of the page only. Centered at the top of the first page should be the
complete title, author(s), mailing and e-mailing addresses, followed by an
abstract and the text. The IEEE Transaction journals LaTeX article style can
be used.

Special issues of journals and edited volumes
Selected papers will be published in special issues of scientific journals.
The organizing committee is looking for publications of edited volumes to
include chapters covering the conference topics written by invited
conference participants.

Invited/Special Sessions
Proposals are invited for special sessions. Papers will then be invited by
the special session chairs.

Workshop Site
Taj Mahal, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA
