6-9 Sep 2022
Brno, Czech Republic


Twenty-fifth International Conference on TEXT, SPEECH and DIALOGUE (TSD 2022)
               Brno, Czech Republic, 6-9 September 2022


Authors are invited to present actual projects, developed software and
hardware or interesting material relevant to the topics of the
conference. The authors of the demonstrations should provide the
abstract not exceeding one page as plain text. The submission must be
made using the online form available at the conference www pages.

The accepted demonstrations will be presented during a special
Demonstration Session (see the Demo Instructions at
www.tsdconference.org).  Demonstrators can present their contribution
with their own notebook with an Internet connection provided by the
organisers or the organisers can prepare a PC computer with multimedia
support for demonstrators.

The demonstration abstracts will not appear in the Proceedings of TSD
2022, they will be published electronically at the conference website.

                            workshop papers and demonstrations

     Eneko Agirre, Universidad del Pa??s Vasco, Spain
     Anna Rogers, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

The conference is organized by the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk
University, Brno, and the Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of
West Bohemia, Pilsen.  The conference is supported by International
Speech Communication Association.

Venue: Brno, Czech Republic


The conference program will be supplemented with a hands-on tutorial

     Speech recognition on the edge
     Prof. Daniel Hromada; Hyungjoong Kim

     Keywords: Automatic Speech Recognition; Speech Command Classification;
 	DeepSpeech; RaspberryPi; NVIDIA Jetson; Python; Linux; Websockets

     During this workshop, participants will be introduced to diverse ways
     how speech-to-text (STT) inferences can be realized on non-cloud, local
     (i.e. edge-computing) architectures.  Participants will acquire
     knowledge and competence concerning intricacies and nuances of
     execution of two different types of ASR systems (DeepSpeech and Random
     Forests) on three different hardware architectures (e.g.
     RaspberryPiZero (armv6); RaspberryPi 4 (armv7 without CUDA) and NVIDIA
     Jetson Xavier (armv8 / aarch64 with CUDA).  Thus, the hands-on workshop
     participants will experience the transformation of all three hardware
     platforms into a low-cost local STT inference engine.


TSD series evolved as a prime forum for interaction between researchers in
both spoken and written language processing from all over the world.
Proceedings of TSD form a book published by Springer-Verlag in their
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. TSD Proceedings
are regularly indexed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation
Index/Web of Science.  Moreover, LNAI series are listed in all major
citation databases such as DBLP, SCOPUS, EI, INSPEC or COMPENDEX.


Topics of the conference will include (but are not limited to):

     Corpora and Language Resources (monolingual, multilingual,
     text and spoken corpora, large web corpora, disambiguation,
     specialized lexicons, dictionaries)

     Speech Recognition (multilingual, continuous, emotional
     speech, handicapped speaker, out-of-vocabulary words,
     alternative way of feature extraction, new models for
     acoustic and language modelling)

     Tagging, Classification and Parsing of Text and Speech
     (morphological and syntactic analysis, synthesis and
     disambiguation, multilingual processing, sentiment analysis,
     credibility analysis, automatic text labeling, summarization,
     authorship attribution)

     Speech and Spoken Language Generation (multilingual, high
     fidelity speech synthesis, computer singing)

     Semantic Processing of Text and Speech (information
     extraction, information retrieval, data mining, semantic web,
     knowledge representation, inference, ontologies, sense
     disambiguation, plagiarism detection, fake news detection)

     Integrating Applications of Text and Speech Processing
     (machine translation, natural language understanding,
     question-answering strategies, assistive technologies)

     Automatic Dialogue Systems (self-learning, multilingual,
     question-answering systems, dialogue strategies, prosody in

     Multimodal Techniques and Modelling (video processing, facial
     animation, visual speech synthesis, user modelling, emotions
     and personality modelling)

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic with a
population of almost 400.000 and is the country's judiciary and
trade-fair center. Brno is the capital of South Moravia, which is
located in the south-east part of the Czech Republic and is known
for a wide range of cultural, natural, and technical sights.
South Moravia is a traditional wine region. Brno had been a Royal
City since 1347 and with its six universities it forms a cultural
center of the region.

Brno can be reached easily by direct flights from London, and by
trains or buses from Vienna (150 km) or Prague (230 km).
