This book constitutes the proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Nonlinear Speech Processing, NOLISP 2013, held in Mons, Belgium, in June 2013.
The 27 refereed papers included in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 34 submissions. The paper are organized in topical sections on speech and audio analysis; speech synthesis; speech-based biomedical applications; automatic speech recognition; and speech enhancement.
