Call for Papers - Special Issue on Statistical Parametric Speech
Synthesis
Statistical parametric speech synthesizers have recently shown their ability to produce
natural-sounding and flexible voices. It only needs a small training database that can
be easily prepared, and the system can be easily adapted to a new voice. Although the
statistical parametric speech synthesizer has been certainly successful, there is still a
lot of challenge for that. For instance, a) how to build a statistical parametric speech
synthesizer that can generate emotional or expressive speech, and how to use it in
natural dialog applications; b) is it possible to combine physical speech production
models for statistical parametric speech synthesis to improve the speech quality; c)
how to build high quality statistical parametric speech synthesizers by only using a
very small training database; d) how to build parametric synthesizers or speaker
adaptation models for cross-language or multi-language.
The purpose of this special issue is to present recent advances on statistical parametric
speech synthesis, and try to find the better solution to improve the naturalness and
expressivity of the synthesis results and new areas to extend the features/applications
of statistical parametric speech synthesis. Contributed papers are invited on, but are
not limited to, the following topics:

Methods for expressive statistical parametric speech synthesis
Crosslingual/multilingual techniques for statistical parametric speech synthesis
New speech generation/excitation models for statistical parametric speech
Combination with physical speech production models for statistical parametric
speech synthesis
Statistical parametric speech synthesis for low-resource languages
New character adaptation method for statistical parametric speech synthesis
New applications for statistical parametric speech synthesis, especially in
games, education or medical applications
