Interspeech 2015 Computational Paralinguistics Challenge (ComParE 2015)
The Interspeech 2015 Computational Paralinguistics ChallengE (ComParE) is an open Challenge dealing with states of speakers as manifested in their speech signal’s acoustic properties. There have so far been six consecutive Challenges at INTERSPEECH since 2009 (cf. the repository), but there still exists a multiplicity of not yet covered, but highly relevant paralinguistic phenomena. Thus, we introduce three new tasks by the Degree of Nativeness Sub-Challenge, the Parkinson's Condition Sub-Challenge, and the Eating Condition Sub-Challenge.

Interdisciplinary Workshop on Laughter and other Non-Verbal Vocalisations in Speech
Following the previous workshops on laughter held in Saarbruecken (2007), Berlin (2009), and Dublin (2012), we have the pleasure to announce a forthcoming workshop in Enschede, the Netherlands in April 2015. The goal of this workshop is to bring together scientists from diverse research areas and to provide an exchange forum for interdisciplinary discussions in order to gain a better understanding of laughter and other non-verbal vocalisations. The workshop will consist of invited talks and oral presentations of ongoing research and discussion papers.

Tool of the day

Greta - Expressive Embodied Conversational Agent
Greta is an ECA system made of several components: behavior engine, MPEG-4 player (face and body). The system takes as input a text file corresponding to the agent's discourse. This text file is augmented with XLM-tags that provide information on how the text is communicated. Several tools go along with the system: facial expression specification, gesture specification, body pose editor, ...
