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

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. The
following is a list of topics that will be discussed at the Workshop and for
which original papers are sought as contributions.

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
Multilingual 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 specialised 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. Centred 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 organising 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 invited by special
session chairs.
