Call for papers

** Paper submission deadline extended to July 31, 2017 **

COCOSDA, an acronym of the International Committee for Coordination and Standardization of Speech Databases and Assessment Techniques, was established in 1991 to promote international cooperation in developing speech corpora and coordinating assessment methods of speech input/output systems. In 1994 it was proposed that a sub-organization for the Oriental community should be established to share linguistic features unique to the region. After a preparatory meeting held by interested members in Hong Kong in 1997, annual meetings have been held since 1998. The community has enjoyed increasing participation from the community and enthusiastic interests to organize future meetings, thus ensuring promising prospect of sustained activities in the future. The purpose of Oriental COCOSDA is to exchange ideas, share information and discusses regional matters on creation, utilization, dissemination of spoken language corpora of oriental languages and also on the assessment methods of speech recognition/synthesis systems as well as to promote speech research on oriental languages. The 2017 Oriental COCOSDA in Seoul hosted by The Korean Society of Phonetic Sciences and Speech Technology (KSPS) will continue to help boost the research and development in the field of Speech Technology as well as further enthusiasm towards Speech Technology in East and Southeast Asia.

Papers are invited on substantial, original and unpublished research on all aspects of speech databases, assessments and speech I/O, including, but not limited to:

1. Speech databases and text corpora
2. Assessment of speech input and output technologies
3. Phonetic/phonological systems for oriental languages
