Sorry for multiple posts.

Dear community,

You are cordially invited to participate in the Interspeech 2020 Shared Task on Automatic Speech Recognition for Non-Native Children’s Speech. Further information about the shared task is available here: https://sites.google.com/view/wocci/home/interspeech-2020-special-session

This shared task will help advance the state-of-the-art in automatic speech recognition (ASR) by considering a challenging domain for ASR: non-native children's speech. A new data set containing English spoken responses produced by Italian students will be released for training and evaluation. The spoken responses in the data set were produced in the context of an English speaking proficiency examination. The following data will be released for this shared task: training set of 49 hours of transcribed speech, development set of 2 hours of transcribed speech, test set of 2 hours of speech, and a baseline Kaldi ASR system with evaluation scripts. The shared task will consist of two tracks: a *closed track* and an *open track.* In the *closed track*, only the training data distributed as part of the shared task can be used to train the models; in the* open track,* any additional data can be used to train the models.

*Important Dates* - Release of training data (initial set), development data, and baseline system: February 7, 2020
