Integrating Speech Technology in Language Learning: An overview of the activities of InSTIL

Philippe Delcloque

University of Abertay Dundee, UK

This presentation describes the activities of a Special Interest Group which focuses on the "Integration of Speech Technology in (Language) traditions: Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and Speech Science & Engineering. The history of the SIG is retraced since its foundation as CAPITAL (see later) in Edinburgh around 1994, past, present activities of the SIG are reviewed, its events, its publications, the origin and diversity of its membership, etc. Future activities are also mentioned. The success of the group has surprised its early members who thought that there were part of a very small minority group, this is a historic year for the SIG for two reasons, the first because it will write, present and publish the first "Illustrated History of Speech Technology in Language Learning" and second because it will be present for the first time at a EUROSPEECH conference.
