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 fees and conference costs: 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.

General Information:

Paper format: From this year on, a new paper format will be used: 4 pages of text plus one page (maximum) for references only. This will facilitate the sometimes difficult arbitration between work description and citation coverage.

Paper submission procedure: Authors will be asked to determine to which topic(s) their contributions relate (see list of areas and topics on the website) and/or if they wish to contribute to a special session (see list below). Each paper proposal will be reviewed by at least three specialists of the area to which it belongs. Papers must be submitted via the on-line paper submission system, accessible through the conference website.

Call for Show & Tell:

Submission deadline: April 19, 2013
Notification of acceptance: May 22, 2013

Show & Tell is a special event organized during the conference, where participants are given the opportunity to demonstrate their most recent progress, developments or innovation tracks, and interact with the conference attendees in an informal way, such as a talk, a poster, a mockup, a demo, or any adapted format of their own choice. These contributions usually (but do not have to) relate to a paper and they must highlight the innovative side of the concept.

Each proposition for the Show & Tell sessions will be peer-reviewed. The originality, significance, quality, and clarity of each submission will be evaluated.

To participate to the Show & Tell, submit a 2-page proposal (in pdf format) describing the concept from the technical point-of-view, its innovative side and the format under which you intend to present it. Authors are allowed to include, in the pdf proposal, links to web pages. Proposal should be submitted to the following email address: is13-showntellinria.fr.

Each accepted Show & Tell will be allocated 2 pages maximum in the conference proceedings, plus the possibility to include some multimedia content. At least one author of each accepted submission must register to the conference and demonstrate the system during the Show & Tell sessions.

A Google Show & Tell Prize of 500 Euros will be awarded to the most innovative participation.

Other Special Events:

Colleagues are invited to propose other special events. See the website for more info on the expected format. An example of such Special Event is the Computational Paralinguistics Challenge.

All new proposals of innovative events will be warmly welcomed and carefully considered, so be imaginative! Initiatives from young researchers will be specifically encouraged and supported.
