The Third Joint Workshop on Hands-free Speech Communication and Microphone Arrays will be held from 30 May to 1 June 2011 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The workshop will bring together researchers in microphone arrays and speech/speaker recognition and focusing on recent advances in speech and signal processing techniques based upon multi-microphone systems, and on distant-talking speech communication and human/machine interaction. Demonstrations of experimental systems, applications, and prototypes are especially welcome.

Technical co-sponsor: IEEE Signal Processing Society. The proceedings will be available on IEEE Xplore.
