The call for proposal for the Ninth Christian Benoît Award is open until May 29th, 2017 and supported by the International Speech Communication Association, the Association Francophone de la Communication Parlée and GIPSA-lab. The Christian Benoît Award is delivered periodically by the Association Christian Benoit. It is given to promising young scientists in the domain of SPEECH and FACE-TO-FACE COMMUNICATION. It can concern basic or applied research projects.
The Award provides the elected scientist with financial support for the development of a short-term research project that:
(1) illustrates concretely the achievements of her/his research work
(2) could help promoting this work in the scientific community and to Grant Agencies
(3) gives an overall view of the state of the art in the research domain.
The proposed research project can have the form of a demonstrator, a technical product or of a pedagogical multi-media product (Movie, Web-site, interactive software…).
