Satellite Workshop – Automatic Speech Recognition in Air Traffic Management (ASR-ATM)

ATCO2 project will be presented on the satellite workshop at Interspeech 2021: The purpose of this satellite workshop is to bring together Speech Recognition and Air Traffic Management (ATM), i.e. all the experts available at the Interspeech and the ATM World. Different presentations are especially addressing the topic of speech recognition in ATM, asking questions and putting challenges for both sides on the table. Date/Time: 30th of August @ 14:00 CEST Costs: Free of charge

The workshop is organized as a hybrid event:

For In-Person attendance the event takes place at Faculty of Information Technology, Brno University of Technology at Božetěchova 1/2, 612 00 Brno (in room G108). If you want to join in-person please contact: petr dot motlicek at idiap dot ch
