              XLDB - 1st. Int'l Workshop on
         Very Large Telephone Speech Databases

         a satellite event to LREC 2000 in Athens

                      May 29th, 2000
                  supported by ELRA and ISCA

In recent years, several very large telephone speech databases have
become available to the SLP community. It is now time to critically
assess the quality and utility of these databases, both for Speech
Technology and Speech Research.

The XL-DB workshop thus focuses on three aspects:

       * Collection, Annotation and Access
       * Research and Gaining new Knowledge
       * Application and Service Development

Contributions to these areas are highly welcome. The web-site
features a registration form for the XLDB-mailing list. Take
advantage of this mailing list to receive the most up-to-date
information on this workshop!
