Submission

Submissions must include both a WER report presented in an ASRU paper and a transcript of the test set. The deadline for submission is 10th July. No new submissions will be accepted after this date, however, authors may make revisions of submitted papers until Friday 17th July as long as the title and author list remain unchanged.

Submitting the paper

Challenge papers should be prepared following the guidelines presented on the ASRU website, http://www.asru2015.org and submitted using ASRU's paper submission system. When submitting a paper there is a drop-down field for "Session Topic" - please choose the CHiME challenge task session. Participants should also email a copy of the paper to chimechallenge@gmail.com. If you revise your paper after the 10th July then please email the revised version on or before the 17th July deadline for revisions.

Submitting the transcripts

Participants must submit the ASR transcripts corresponding to their official results (including transcript for both the real and simulated data) by emailing them to chimechallenge@gmail.com on or before the submission deadline. If your transcripts are revised after the 10th July then please email the revised versions on or before the 17th July deadline for revisions.

If you are using the Kaldi baseline, the transcripts to be submitted are the files called exp/***/best_wer_enhanced.result provided by the scoring functions (local/chime3_calc_wers.sh, local/chime3_calc_wers_smbr.sh).
