ASRU 2013

Automatic Speech Recognition and Understanding Workshop

December 8-12, 2013 | Olomouc, Czech Republic

ASRU 2013 - video recordings and slides


The ASRU workshop meets every two years and has a tradition of bringing together researchers from academia and industry in an intimate and collegial setting to discuss problems of common interest in automatic speech recognition and understanding.

Topics and focus

Three ASRU 2013 days focused on three important topics in current machine recognition of speech

  1. Neural networks in ASR
    day organized by Nelson Morgan [ICSI] and Brian Kingsbury [IBM] - speakers
  2. Building ASR systems with limited resources
    day organized by Jim Glass [MIT] and Aren Jansen [JHU] - speakers
  3. ASR in applications
    day organized by Johan Shalkwyk and Pedro Moreno [Google] - speakers

Submitted papers were encouraged to focus on the areas above, but papers in other typical ASRU areas (LVCSR Systems, Language Modeling, Acoustic Modeling, Decoders & Search, Spoken Language Understanding, Spoken Dialog Systems, Robustness in ASR, Spoken Document Retrieval, Speech-to-Speech Translation, Speech Summarization, New Applications of ASR and Speech Signal Processing) were welcome as well.


The workshop featured one keynote and one or two invited talks a day. Regular papers were presented as posters. ASRU 2013 also included panel discussions and a Demo&Toolkit session.
