SpeD 2019 – Welcome message


“SpeD 2019” Organizing Committee invites you to attend the 10th Conference on Speech Technology and Human-Computer Dialogue, at Timișoara, Romania. “SpeD 2019” celebrates its 10th edition by extending the topics of interest from spoken language technology and human-computer dialogue towards broader, related domains: multimodal signal processing, biosecurity, human-robot interaction and embedded systems.

Furthermore, “SpeD 2019” conference and international forum will reflect some of the latest tendencies in machine learning for audio, speech, image and multimodal information processing, biometrics and security for IoT, intelligent robots and embedded systems. “SpeD 2019” will also focus on the most recent applications in these domains.

The series of “SpeD” conferences is sponsored by IEEE and EURASIP. As all previous editions since 2009, “SpeD 2019” Proceedings will be indexed by the IEEE Xplore and by Thomson Conference Proceedings Citation Index.
