TC-STAR Workshop on Speech-to-Speech Translation
June 19-21, 2006
Barcelona, Spain



TC-STAR is a European integrated project focusing on Speech-to-Speech
Translation (SST).
The project targets unconstrained conversational speech domains in three
languages: European English, European Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese.

The workshop intends to bring together researchers working on all aspects
of speech-to-speech translation and to compare TC-Star innovative
approaches to other on-going research projects. The workshop is associated
with an open evaluation campaign (for details see:
<http://www.elda.org/tcstar-workshop/>www.elda.org/tcstar-workshop), whose
results will be presented in addition to regular papers.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

The workshop invites the submission of papers on original and unpublished
research on all aspects of speech-to-speech translation:
* speech and language translation
* speech recognition
* speech synthesis
* evaluation and system aspects: performance measures, integration of
recognition and translation, combination of system outputs, ...

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings. Further
details on the submission guidelines can be found on the workshop web site
