BOSARIS 2010

BOSARIS (Brno Speaker Recognition Summer Workshop 2010) was a 5-week research workshop, held at BUT in July 2010, and following the Odyssey 2010: The Speaker and Language Recognition Workshop. Organized around the core of the group that gathered in 2008 at Johns Hopkins summer workshop 'Robust Speaker Recognition over Varying Channels', the participants addressed the issues of inter-session and environmental robustness, and the speed of SRE systems. Although the results of the workshop are likely to be most interesting to the defense and security community, BOSARIS was not a classified research workshop and results are available to the public domain. The workshop was led by Niko Brummer (Agnitio, South Africa), Patrick Kenny (CRIM, Canada) and Lukas Burget (BUT).

BOSARIS 2010 was sponsored by the individual funds of the participants, by BUT's Faculty of Information Technology, by Agnitio and by EC FP7-sponsored project MOBIO.
