Call for papers

Workshop Topics

Papers in all areas of speech synthesis technology are encouraged to be submitted, including but not limited to:

  • Grapheme-to-phoneme conversion for synthesis
  • Text processing for speech synthesis (text normalization, syntactic and semantic analysis, intent detection)
  • Signal processing/statistical model for synthesis
  • Prosody modeling, transfer and generation
  • Expression, emotion and personality generation
  • Voice conversion and modification, morphing (parallel and non-parallel)
  • Concept-to-speech conversion speech synthesis in dialog systems
  • Avatars and talking faces
  • Cross-lingual and multilingual aspects for synthesis (e.g. automatic language switching)
  • Applications of synthesis technologies to communication disorders
  • TTS for embedded devices and computational issues
  • Tools and data for speech synthesis
  • Non conventional speech synthesis paradigms and methods; articulatory synthesis, articulation-to-speech synthesis, singing synthesis, etc.
  • Quality assessment/evaluation metrics in synthesis
  • End-to-end text-to-speech synthesis
  • Direct speech waveform modelling and generation
  • Neural vocoding for speech synthesis
  • Speech synthesis using non-ideal data (‘found’, user-contributed, etc.)
  • Concept-to-speech, natural language generation for speech synthesis
  • Special topics:
    • Incremental processing
    • Multimodal synthesis of coverbal behaviors
    • Human in the loop: modeling and evaluation of mutual adaptation (alignment, chameleon effect, etc)
    • Evaluation issues: beyond MOS
