Sadaoki Furui Workshop

Sadly, one of the great pioneers and creative geniuses of speech processing, Dr. Sadaoki Furui, passed away on 31st July 2022 at the age of 76. Because of the important role that Sadaoki Furui played not only for us as scientists, but also as a co-founder of our community, the first ISCA presidents who preceded and succeeded Sadaoki Furui and the current ISCA president organized a virtual workshop in his honor. The workshop had contributions from many individuals of our community, and there were many personal viewpoints and historic events cited by close colleagues and friends of Sadaoki Furui. The organizers would like to thank all attendees for their very personal and valuable contributions, and for their interest in the workshop.
