AVISA (the Auditory-VIsual Speech Association), which was the second ISCA Special Interest Group (SIG) to form, starting its official business on December 5, 1998, at the AVSP'98 (Auditory Visual Speech Processing) meeting in Terrigal, New South Wales, Australia.
AVISA was first conceived by Christian Benoît, who wanted to see the auditory-visual speech community come together in a more formal way. Before his untimely death, Christian drafted a proposal to create AVISA. We are proud to dedicate this SIG to Christian's memory.
