A bit of history
The Spanish Thematic Network on Speech Technology (“Red Temática en Tecnología del Habla, (RTTH) has been promoting the “Jornadas en Tecnologías del Habla” since 2000. Previous workshops were held in Seville (2000), Granada (2002), Valencia (2004), Zaragoza (2006) and Bilbao (2008).
Special Interest Group on Iberian Languages (SIG-IL) of the ISCA organized the “I Iberian SLTech – I Joint SIG-IL / Microsoft Workshop on Speech and Language Technologies for Iberian Languages” in Porto Salvo, nearby Lisbon, on September 2009.
Both events pursue the aims of being a meeting point to present and discuss the results of the research on speech and language technologies on Iberian languages and promoting industry/university collaboration.
These two separate events joined efforts at the “FALA2010” conference in Vigo (2010), the first joint “Jornadas en Tecnología del Habla” and “Iberian SLTech”. The last three editions of this joint event were held in Madrid, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Lisbon under the name IberSPEECH 2012, InerSPEECH 2014 and IberSPEECH2016, respectively.
Based on the success of these previous events, the IberSPEECH 2018 conference to be held in Barcelona will join them again in order to take advantage of synergies and aiming at gathering most of the members of the scientific community working on speech and language technologies for the Iberian Languages.
