ESSV 2016

27th Conference on Electronic Speech Signal Processing

Hochschule für Telekommunikation Leipzig (HfTL), March 2-4, 2016


The Conference "Electronic Speech Signal Processing" (ESSV) took place in March 2016 for the first time in the City of Leipzig. The millennial Leipzig has much going for – thinking of the world-famous concert hall Gewandhaus, Goethe’s Auerbachs Cellar or the Leipzig Book Fair but also of an excursion through the ultra-modern Electrocar production of BMW.
Beyond and within the conference context, the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig should be mentioned.

The 27th ESSV Conference 2016 was staged in the Hochschule für Telekommunikation Leipzig (Leipzig University of Telecommunications) – a state-approved private university of Deutsche Telekom with a nice campus in Leipzig's trendy Southern District.

The ESSV conference series draws a wide bow from the areas of speech processing to neighboring topics of signal processing in acoustics or image processing. It includes contributions to phonetics, to speech recognition and synthesis, to paralinguistic and non-linguistic processing but also to dialogue or semantic modeling. A credo of the ESSV community is the connection of theory and practice shown by numerous application- and industry-oriented contributions in the fields of audio and speech technology.
Special emphases of ESSV 2016 were the cognitive/neural systems and the signal processing in telecommunications and automotive industry.

The ESSV conference series is organized by the friends' association Förderverein Elektronische Sprachsignalverarbeitung e.V.
ESSV 2016 Conference was arranged by the Hochschule für Telekommunikation Leipzig (HfTL) with organizational support of the Institut für Bildungs- und Wissenschaftsmanagement Leipzig (IBWM).
