Alongside with the WASP summer school on the Synthesis of Human Communication, WARA Media and Language is arranging an industry conference. The conference focuses on identifying practical use-cases for the new technology and sharing experiences from on-going industrial applications in the realm of generative language models, speech synthesis, and gesture modelling. Speakers are both national and international experts in relevant research fields.

The joint grand final is a demo session of students from the Summer School showcasing their prototyping avatars in the 3D Dome at Norrköping Visualisation Center.
