Session ID

The session ID identifies one particular recording within the speech corpus. It often consists of characters that give broad categorical information about the recording (for instance language, sex of speaker, type of recording setup, domain etc.) and a number. The session ID is then often used in file names within the corpus to denote data belonging to the same recording session.

E.g. a session ID from the Verbmobil II project

G001AC where 'G' = German, 'A' = domain, 'C' = head set
Ideally a session ID should be created automatically to avoid duplicate or malformed IDs.
