I'm glad to announce that Nick Ruiz was awarded the Best Student Paper Award at the INTERSPEECH Conference in Dresden (Germany) for the joint FBK-Microsoft research paper:

"Adapting Machine Translation Models toward Misrecognized Speech with Text-to-Speech Pronunciation Rules and Acoustic Confusability"

by Nicholas Ruiz, Qin Gao, William Lewis, Marcello Federico.

INTERSPEECH is among the world largest conferences on Speech and Language Technology (746 papers presented this year).

Hence, the competition for getting one of the three best student paper awards must have been certainly fierce.  Congratulations to Nick!
