The 13th ITG conference on Speech Communication solicits contributions on theory, algorithms, and applications in the following areas of speech, audio, and spoken language processing:
• Speech Enhancement and Separation
• Source Localization and Tracking
• Automatic Speech and Speaker Recognition
• Spoken Dialogue, Diarization, and Spoken Document Retrieval Systems
• Speech Synthesis
• Speech Modeling, Coding, and Transmission
• Speech Production and Perception
• Speech and Audio Quality Assessment
• Speech Intelligibility Assessment
• Paralinguistics, speech diagnostics and speech-related biosignals
