About the workshop: Speech is a fundamental human activity. It is central to the organisation and the development of human health, personality and intelligence. Speech signal processing is a scientific discipline as well as a technology frontier with immense applications such as speech, speaker and language recognition, speech synthesis,speech enhancement and speechcoding. On one side are the speech and language sciences(such as linguistics, phonetics, psychoacoustics) whereas, on the other side are signal processing theory,linear algebra, pattern recognition,artificial intelligence, etc., leading to enhanced human-human and human-machine communication systems. Such wide ranging research and development demands broad base of fundamental knowledge in this area. With an aim to have a deep insight into a few of the applications of speech processing, this workshop will focus on Text-to-Speech(TTS)synthesis.The workshop will cover various approaches for speech synthesis, viz., unit-selection synthesis(USS),statistical parametric synthesis(viz.,HMM-Based Speech Synthesis),articulatory speech synthesis.The workshop will be highly benefited by invited talks by eminent speech processing researchers from academia,industry and research laboratories.
