ACM Multimedia 2015 Workshop

Speech, Language and Audio in Multimedia

Speech, language and audio meet computer vision

The workshop on Speech, Language and Audio in Multimedia (SLAM) aims at bringing together researchers working in speech, language and audio processing to analyze, index and access multimedia data

Following SLAM 2013 in Marseille, France, and SLAM 2014 in Pinang, Malaysia, both collocated with the Interspeech conference, SLAM 2015 naturally moves to the multimedia community! To make the most of the collocation with ACM Multimedia, the workshop features a dedicated session to highlight work on multimodality and fusion, at the intersection of speech, audio, language and computer vision.

SLAM gathers players from the fields of speech and audio processing and of multimedia to share recent research results, discuss ongoing and future projects, explore potential areas for interdisciplinary collaboration or sharing or ideas, and develop new benchmarking initiatives of mutual interest to multimedia and language researchers. We expect contributions on ongoing research work, project descriptions, evaluation initiatives, demonstrations and applications emphasizing the speech and/or language and/or audio contribution to any type of multimedia technology.

As a special focus of SLAM 2015, a session devoted to video hyperlinking will be held and followed by a panel discussion, as a case study where the speech and language modalities are complemented by audio and vision.
