ISAT 2019 - Intelligent speech and audio technologies workshop

ISAT workshop is organized to gather together researchers working in the field of speech and audio processing from different application areas. It aims to encourage cooperation of different Slovak research groups working in these fields with their current and perspective partners. We want to discuss modern technologies and state of the art and how we can contribute with our research topics. We also invite PhD students with work-in-progress and industry partners from Slovakia with research-suggestions contributions to participate.

The workshop is part of the ITAT conference, which is organized from 20th to 24th September 2019 in hotel Zornička in Donovaly – inside the splendid Low Tatras Slovak National Park. Our workshop will be organized between September 20-22.
