We are very pleased to announce the Interspeech 2017 Special Session on Speech Technologies for Code-Switching in Multilingual Communities.
Code-switching provides various interesting challenges to the speech community, such as language modeling for mixed languages, acoustic modeling of mixed language speech, pronunciation modeling and language identification from speech. The special session focusing on speech processing of code-switched speech will include oral presentations and a poster session. We expect participants from academic and industry spanning a wide variety of language pairs and data sets. We also expect discussions on how to create speech and language resources for code-switching and sharing of data.
