Dear Readers,

Welcome to the IEEE Speech and Language Processing Technical Committee's Newsletter!

This issue features the next installment of our regular column, "Getting to Know Your Fellow Researchers", highlighting Douglas O'Shaughnessy, who is a Professor at INRS-Télécommunications (University of Quebec) in Montreal, Canada and the author of the textbook Speech Communications: Human and Machine (IEEE Press, 2000). He has contributed immensely to the IEEE society for a number of years now.

We would like to draw your attention to the JSALT summer workshop being held at CMU this summer. To help you keep abreast of the developments at the workshop, we have provided relevant links in the related article below.

This issue also includes a review of the 2017 ICASSP held at New Orleans and the announcement of the creation of Yajie Miao Memorial Student student travel grant.

This 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 contact the TC via this form, or send mail to speechnewseds@listserv.ieeeto propose articles.

To subscribe to the Newsletter, send an email with the command "subscribe speechnewsdist" in the message body sends e-mail).
