Call for Papers

AVSP is a uniquely interdisciplinary conference, focusing on the effects of auditory and visual speech information on human perception, machine recognition, and human-machine interaction. AVSP conferences attract many researchers from various fields, such as psychology, computer engineering, neuroscience, linguistics, and robotic engineering. AVSP is a satellite workshop of ICPhS 2019, the 19th International Congress of the Phonetic Sciences.

The AVSP conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia, August 10 &11, 2019.


Submission of papers are invited in all areas of auditory-visual speech processing and facial animation and including but not limited to:

  • Human recognition of audio-visual speech
  • Machine recognition of audio-visual speech
  • Human and machine models of multimodal integration
