SLTC Newsletter - Winter 2012

The Winter 2012 edition of the IEEE Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee's Newsletter is now online.


It is my great pleasure and honor to be the successor of Jason Williams as the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE SLTC Newsletter. Both Jason and the previous Editor-in-Chief Mike Seltzer kept the bar very high, establishing a top class newsletter, which is now much more than just a list of conference or jobs announcements. Thus, we'd like to thank the previous editorial team, volunteer reporters, invited and guest contributors, IEEE administrative team, and whole speech and language processing community for supporting this newsletter to be a phenomenal success within the IEEE Signal Processing Society. We'd like to especially thank Jason Williams and Chuck Wooters who have spent many hours trying to get the new team up to the speed.

We believe this Newsletter has contributed significantly in establishing a culture within the IEEE Speech and Language Processing community. Our goal is move this one step further in line with the current vision, towards a more interactive and dynamic Newsletter content. We will greatly appreciate your ideas, opinions, and thoughts to this end.

In this issue we are pleased to provide another installment of brief articles representing a diversity of views and backgrounds. This issue includes 12 articles from 14 guest contributors, and our own staff reporters and editors.

We believe the newsletter is an ideal forum for updates, reports, announcements and editorials which don't fit well with traditional journals. We welcome your contributions, as well as calls for papers, job announcements, comments and suggestions. You can submit job postings here, and reach us at speechnewseds [at] listserv (dot) ieee [dot] org.

Finally, to subscribe the Newsletter, send an email with the command "subscribe speechnewsdist" in the message body to listserv [at] listserv (dot) ieee [dot] org.
