2014 Speech Processing Courses in Crete
The 1st ISCA Summer School

4-8 August 2014    University of Crete, Heraklion, Crete, Greece


The Speech Processing Courses in Crete (SPCC) are targeting to teach graduate students and researchers the latest advancements of speech processing covering theory, hands on, and establishing contacts between the academics and industry. The school will provide the chance to students and professionals to meet world leaders in speech technology, exchanging ideas, sharing experiences and vision.
This is the first(!) ISCA Summer School and it is co-organized with the University of Crete, Greece. It is also sponsored by Toshiba and Google. We thank our sponsors for their support.

For 2014, the school aims to cover the following areas:

  • Speech Production and Modelling
  • Voice Pathology
  • Speech Intelligibility and Hearing Aids
  • Statistical Spoken Dialogue Systems
  • Distant Speech Recognition

Because of an unexpected change in the initial program, instead of Mechanism of Hearing, the School will cover the topic of Voice Pathology (by Prof. Yannis Stylianou)
