Welcome!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that I cordially invite you to the 10 th International Workshop MAVEBA2017.
Since 1999 the MAVEBA Workshop aims at stimulating contacts between specialists active in bioengineering, clinical and industrial development in the area of voice signal and image analysis for biomedical applications.
This tenth Workshop will offer again the participants an interdisciplinary platform for presenting and discussing new knowledge in the field of models and analysis of signal and images of the human vocal apparatus and any related field such as neurology, psychiatry, linguistics and singing. Both adult, pediatric and newborn voices are concerned.
The MAVEBA Workshop welcomes contributions ranging from fundamental research to all kinds of biomedical applications and related established and advanced technologies with emphasis on translational research.
Proposal for Special Sessions, sw and hw demos, round tables on specific themes are welcome.
As for past editions a book of Proceedings will be available at the time of the conference, edited by Firenze University Press.
Moreover a Special Issue of an international journal included in all the major database is foreseen, collecting extended version of selected contributions presented at the MAVEBA Workshop.
I am looking forward to welcoming you again next December in Firenze and enjoy together the Florentine Christmas atmosphere!
Claudia Manfredi
MAVEBA2017 Chair
