Motivation: Several of the goals of speech scientists and neuroscientists working in speech are of mutual relevance and are increasingly converging into each other. The aim of this workshop is to promote exchange of ideas, methods, data and to foster collaborations between researchers working in these fields. This synergy between the neuroscience of speech and computer speech technologies is indispensable for creating the next generation rehabilitative technologies for a range of speech and language disorders and to bring computer based speech technologies closer to human performance in speech recognition, synthesis and understanding.
