3-1-2(2023-08-20) INTERSPEECH 2023 First Call for Papers

INTERSPEECH 2023 First Call for Papers


INTERSPEECH is the world’s largest and most comprehensive conference on the science and technology of spoken language processing. INTERSPEECH conferences emphasise interdisciplinary approaches addressing all aspects of speech science and technology, ranging from basic theories to advanced applications.


INTERSPEECH 2023 will take place in Dublin, Ireland, from August 20-24th 2023 and will feature oral and poster sessions, plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, special sessions and challenges, show & tell, exhibits, and satellite events.


The theme of INTERSPEECH 2023 is Inclusive Spoken Language Science and Technology – Breaking Down Barriers. Whilst it is not a requirement to address this theme, we encourage submissions that: report performance metric distributions in addition to averages; break down results by demographic; employ diverse data; evaluate with diverse target users; report barriers that could prevent other researchers adopting a technique, or users from benefitting. This is not an exhaustive list, and authors are encouraged to discuss the implications of the conference theme for their own work.


Papers are especially welcome from authors who identify as being under-represented in the speech science and technology community, whether that is because of geographical location, economic status, race, age, gender, sexual orientation or any other characteristic.

Paper Submission

INTERSPEECH 2023 seeks original and innovative papers covering all aspects of speech science and technology. The working language of the conference is English, so papers must be written in English. The paper length is up to four pages in two columns with an additional page for references only. Submitted papers must conform to the format defined in the author’s kit provided on the conference website (, and may optionally be accompanied by multimedia files. Authors must declare that their contributions are original and that they have not submitted their papers elsewhere for publication. Papers must be submitted electronically and will be evaluated through rigorous peer review on the basis of novelty and originality, technical correctness, clarity of presentation, key strengths, and quality of references. The Technical Programme Committee will decide which papers to include in the conference programme using peer review as the primary criterion, with secondary criteria of addressing the conference theme, and diversity across the programme as a whole.

Scientific areas and topics


INTERSPEECH 2022 embraces a broad range of science and technology in speech, language and communication, including – but not limited to – the following topics:

3-1-6(2024-09-01) Interspeech 2024, Jerusalem, Israel.

 ISCA conference committee has decided Interspeech 2024 will be held in

Jerusalem, Israel from

September 1 till September 5.




Now's the time of year that seminar programmes get fixed up.. please direct the attention of whoever organises your seminars to the ISCA INTERNATIONAL VIRTUAL SEMINARS scheme (introduction below). There is now a good choice of speakers:  see


A seminar programme is an important part of the life of a research lab, especially for its research students, but it's difficult for scientists to travel to give talks at the moment. However,  presentations may be given on line and, paradoxically, it is thus possible for labs to engage international speakers who they wouldn't normally be able to afford.

ISCA has set up a pool of speakers prepared to give on-line talks. In this way we can enhance the experience of students working in our field, often in difficult conditions. To find details of the speakers,

  • visit
  • Click Distinguished Lecturers in the left panel
  • Online Seminars then appears beneath Distinguished Lecturers: click that.

Speakers may pre-record their talks if they wish, but they don't have to. It is up to the host lab to contact speakers and make the arrangements. Talks can be state-of-the-art, or tutorials.

If you make use of this scheme and arrange a seminar, please send brief details (lab, speaker, date) to

If you wish to join the scheme as a speaker, we need is a title, a short abstract, a 1 paragraph biopic and contact details. Please send them to

PS. The online seminar scheme  is now up and running, with 7 speakers so far:


Jean-Luc Schwartz, Roger Moore, Martin Cooke, Sakriani Sakti, Thomas Hueber, John Hansen and Karen Livescu.
