Call for participation: CHI 2018 Course on Speech-based Interaction

Do you like your mobile phone's voice-enabled digital assistant? Or do you
hate her / him / it? Do you enjoy chatting with cylinder-shaped speakers
that sit on your desk? Do you want to know more about how all this works?
If yes, then consider registering for the CHI 2018 Course: "Speech-based
Interaction: Myths, Challenges, and Opportunities". For the eight
consecutive year at CHI, we will debunk myths surrounding voice
interfaces, demystify how speech recognition and synthesis work, discuss
how speech interfaces fail their users, and challenge interaction
designers and researchers to explore how speech can enhance existing and
future interaction paradigms.

For course details please go to:

To register go to and add
the "Speech and Hands-free Interaction" course to your registration. The
course is scheduled for Thursday, 26 May 2018, at 09:00.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in Montreal!
