Call for Papers and Extended Abstracts

BMVC  workshop on “Lip-reading using Deep Learning Methods”

Date: September 7th 2017
Location: Imperial College London
Website: http://www.talking-heads.eu/bmvc/

Lip-reading is a field of major importance for a wide range of applications, such as silent dictation, speech recognition in noisy environments, improved hearing aids and biometrics. It lies at the intersection of computer vision and speech recognition, which are the two fields that pioneered deep learning methods. The aim of the workshop is to gather researchers on audiovisual speech recognition and lip-reading to disseminate their work and to exchange views on the new potentials of the field created by the advent of deep learning methods.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

– Deep Learning methods for Lip-Reading
– Audiovisual Speech Recognition and fusion methods
– Combinations of probabilistic and Deep Learning methods for Lip-Reading
– Visual units for Lip-Reading
– Audiovisual biometrics
– Tracking methods for Lip-Reading
– Multi-View Lip-Reading
– Audiovisual Speech Synthesis
– Lip-Reading and Audiovisual Databases

Papers should be formatted according to the BMVC template: https://bmvc2017.london/paper-submission.

Papers should be submitted through the following CMT site: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/LRDLM2017
The papers will be included in the conference proceedings.

Extended Abstracts

Presentations not accompanied by a paper are also encouraged, in order to promote dissemination of recent and ongoing research. In the latter case, a 2-page extended abstract is required. The extended abstracts are not considered to be publications and will not  be included in the conference proceedings.

The deadline for submission of extended abstracts is 24 August 2017
