Meeting Description: INTERSPEECH 2013 Conference
with special focus on ‘Speech in Life Sciences and Human Societies’
25-29 August 2013, Lyon (France)

INTERSPEECH is the world’s largest and most comprehensive conference on Spoken Language Processing science and technology. This edition will be the 14th in the annual series of Interspeech events and will coincide with the 25th anniversary of ISCA, formerly known as ESCA, which was born in France in 1988.

INTERSPEECH 2013 is coordinated by AFCP (Association Francophone de la Communication Parlée, i.e. the ‘French-speaking’ Special Interest Group of ISCA).

The conference will be hosted in the Lyon Convention Center, which offers first-grade facilities in a very attractive city and region, at the heart of Europe.

Speech is a fundamental human activity which runs across biology, medicine, psychology, sociology, anthropology or ecology. It is central to the organization and the development of human health, personality and intelligence. It is also essential to the synergy within human groups and their relationship with their environment.

Besides the conventional acoustic and linguistic viewpoints on speech communication, all these related disciplines provide additional approaches to speech as the keystone of communication, cognition and interaction in human societies.

The conference will thus promote an interdisciplinary approach covering all aspects of speech science and technology, ranging from fundamental contributions to practical applications, in a wide variety of areas.

INTERSPEECH 2013 will consist of regular oral and poster sessions, plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, exhibits, special sessions, show & tells and satellite events. INTERSPEECH papers are indexed in ISI, Engineering Index, Scopus, and Google Scholar.

Registration will start by mid-April. Early registration fees for full-delegate ISCA members are set to 520 Euros, including the conference banquet. Students will benefit from a reduced rate of 50% (i.e. 260 Euros).

In order to keep overall costs low, an accommodation package will be proposed to students, in the range of 250 Euros for 5 nights + breakfast. Grants will also be available, to further reduce financial burden.
