Special Interest Group on Russian Speech Analysis was created in 2008. The SIG promotes research activities in Russian speech analysis. Its main focus is the use of formal representations of the sound system of Russian in order to enable automatic processing of large speech corpora and automatically interpret speech events in terms of phonetic/linguistic phenomena. All researchers interested in related issues are invited to join the SIG. A member of the SIG does not have to be a member of ISCA, although ISCA membership may be of benefit to a researcher.
