Odyssey 2014: The Speaker and Language Recognition Workshop was hosted by the School of Computing of University of Eastern Finland (UEF) in Joensuu, Finland, on June 16-19, 2014. Odyssey 2014 is an ISCA tutorial and research workshop held in cooperation with the ISCA Speaker and Language Characterization special interest group. The need for fast, efficient, accurate, and robust means of recognizing people and languages is of growing importance for commercial, forensic, and government applications. The aim of this workshop is to continue to foster interactions among researchers in speaker and language recognition as the successor of previous successful events held in Martigny (1994), Avignon (1998), Crete (2001), Toledo (2004), San Juan (2006), Stellenbosch (2008), Brno (2010) and Singapore (2012).
