4th IEEE Tutorial and Research Workshop on Perception and Interactive Technologies for Speech-Based Systems

The workshop focuses on advanced speech-based human-computer interaction where various contextual factors are modelled and taken into account when users communicate with computers. This includes mechanisms, architectures, design issues, applications, evaluation and tools. Prototype and product demonstrations will be very welcome.

Future interfaces will be endowed with more human-like capabilities. For example, the emotional state of the user will be analysed so as to be able to automatically adapt the dialogue flow to user preferences, state of knowledge and learning success. Strategies in menu selection will be guided by computational models of attention and the analysis of eye movements tracked in various scenarios. Complex knowledge bases and reasoning capabilities will control ambient devices that automatically adapt to user requirements and communication styles and, in doing so, help reducing the mental load of the user. Future interfaces will finally behave like real partners or cognitive technical assistants to their users.

The workshop will bring together researchers from various disciplines such as, for example, computer science and engineering sciences, medical, psychological and neurosciences, as well as mathematics. It will provide a forum for the presentation of research and applications and for lively discussions among researchers as well as industrialists in different fields.
