Czech‑German Workshop
on Speech Communication

22nd Czech‑German Workshop on Speech Communication

September 25-27, 2014

This workshop aims to continue in the tradition of the Czech‑German Workshops on Speech Processing founded jointly by Dresden University of Technology, Goethe University Frankfurt, Czech Technical University, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Charles University in Prague.

We would like to bring together speech researchers from the Czech Republic and German‑speaking countries and welcome them in Prague for a small, friendly and inspiring workshop. Its focus is expanding from speech processing to speech communication in general, so the organizers welcome contributions from all areas concerning speech.
