Summer School on Speech Signal Processing (S4P) 2017    



S4P-Summer School on Speech Signal Processing is being organized as a part of summer school activities at Speech Research Lab, DA-IICT, Gandhinagar. It will provide opportunities to students, researchers and professionals to enhance their fundamentals and get exposed to cutting-edge research areas in the field of speech signal processing. The school constitutes of a theme topic and tutorials surrounding it. S4P 2017 is the third summer school at DA-IICT following the very successful earlier two summer schools, S4P 2016 and ASAP 2016 focusing on different topics in the broad area of speech signal processing.  
S4P, 2017 is targeted mainly towards graduate/post-graduate students, college teachers/faculty in educational institutions and scientists/researchers in research laboratories/industry who are interested in this area and would like to learn more about this area from some of the best researchers in the world.



FOCUS: Speaker and Language Recognition               


Speaker recognition (voice biometrics) has gained a lot of interests in a large number of e-commerce and forensics related applications such as automatic access through voice profile, filtering of telephone calls. Discussion related to the development of speaker recognition systems which are robust to noise, channel variability, intrinsic variability (due to speakers, health issues, stress, etc.) is the major goal of S4P 2017. In addition, the recent research work related to the development of countermeasures against spoofing and tampering attacks will also be covered in this summer school. Language Identification (LID) with the major focus on dialect and accent identification will also be explored.  This summer school will be highly benefited by invited talks from eminent speech processing researchers from academia, industry and research laboratories from India and abroad. In addition, S4P 2017 is highly benefited by world renowned program committee members. Furthermore, to encourage young talent, the school presents a special session on doctoral consortium talks by four ISCA student members of DA-IICT.
