December 2012: Birmingham Conference

The first UKSpeech conference was held at the University Of Birmingham on 17/18 December 2012 and attracted 80 delegates. Entitled "UK & Irish Speech Science and Technology Research", it presented a series of talks from research labs and companies about the research work they are doing in speech. There were also 50 posters from individual researchers. It was a great opportunity to find out about research activities in the UK and Ireland, and to meet some old friends. Thanks to Arnab Goshal for organising the programme and to Martin Russell for local arrangements.

You can still view the programme of talks and posters and book of abstracts.

As a result of the meeting, Arnab has agreed to form a small committee to plan another event. If you would like to contribute ideas or a venue, please contact Arnab, or use the UKSpeech mailing list.

Introducing the new UKSpeech web site

UKSpeech was formed in 2003 to organise one-day meetings for speech researchers in the United Kingdom. Its series of workshops for Young Researchers in speech have been very popular, and we hope to hold another event in the series soon.

This relaunched web site will be the new home of UKSpeech and the basis for a new range of UKSpeech activities. This is a community site where members of the community can advertise themselves, their events, their jobs or studentships, their academic or training courses among other things. Anyone can add to the listings or edit listings, although all information is validated by e-mail address and checked by the site moderator.

We hope you find the site useful, please add reverse links from your web site to make this site easier to find.

If you have ideas for the site, or want to report faults, please contact
