SpoHuMa21 (November 15-17, 2021)

I had the pleasure of organizing the FRIAS Junior Researcher Conference - Human Perspectives on Spoken Human-Machine Interaction (SpoHuMa21) together with Sarah Warchhold (University of Freiburg), Daniel Duran (ZAS Berlin), and Eran Raveh (Hyro AI). The conference was supported by the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) – special thanks to Kyra Vogt and Attilio Ferrarese!

SpoHuMa21 featured submitted talks by young researchers, invited talks by Michelle Cohn (University of California, Davis, USA), Friederike Eyssel (Bielefeld University, Germany), Roger K. Moore (University of Sheffield, UK), Catharine Oertel (Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands), and Karola Pitsch (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany), as well as various interactive discussion sessions.

We had a great time discussing spoken human-machine interaction from many different angles! 🗣 🤖
