WOCCI 2014 – Workshop on

Child Computer Interaction

Satellite Event of INTERSPEECH 2014,

Singapore, September 19, 2014


The 4th Workshop on Child Computer Interaction (WOCCI 2014) will be held in Singapore on September 19, 2014. The Workshop is a satellite event of the 15th Annual Conference of the International Speech Communication Association (INTERSPEECH 2014), which will take place in the same city September 14-18, 2014. WOCCI 2014 will be held in Fusionopolis.

This workshop aims to join researchers and practitioners from universities and industry working in all aspects of child-machine interaction including computer, robotics and multi-modal interfaces. Children are special both at the acoustic/linguistic level as well as the interaction level. The Workshop provides a unique opportunity for bringing together different research communities from cognitive science, robotics, speech processing, linguistics as well as applied areas such as medical and educational technologies. Various state-of-the-art components can be presented here as key components for the next generation of child-centered computer interaction. Technological advances are increasingly necessary in a world where education and health pose growing challenges to the core wellbeing of our societies. Noticeable examples are remedial treatments for children with or without disabilities and capabilities for providing individualized attention. The Workshop will serve as a venue for presenting recent advancements in core technologies as well as experimental systems and prototypes.

Thanks a lot to the local organizing team from Singapore, who did a great job to make WOCCI 2014 a big success!
