The Call for Papers for INTERSPEECH 2015 has been closed on Mar 20, 2015. You find a copy of the archived call below.
INTERSPEECH is the world’s largest and most comprehensive conference on the science and technology of spoken language processing. INTERSPEECH conferences emphasize interdisciplinary approaches addressing all aspects of speech science and technology, ranging from basic theories to applications.
INTERSPEECH 2015 will be organized around the theme Speech beyond Speech: Towards a Better Understanding of the Most Important Biosignal, which acknowledges the fact that speech is the most important biosignal humans can produce and perceive. It is evident that not all characteristics of speech are already fully understood. We therefore encourage contributions that analyze and model speech as a biosignal in a broad understanding, e.g. for extracting information about the speaker, for identifying processes leading to speech production, or for generating speech signals with specific bio-characteristics. Contributions to all other areas of speech science and technology are also welcome.
In addition to regular oral and poster sessions, the conference will feature plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, special sessions, show & tell sessions, and exhibits. A number of satellite events will take place immediately before and after the conference. Please follow the details of these and other news at the conference website or through our twitter channel.
We invite you to submit original papers in any area related to the scope of the conference, including but not limited to:
- Speech as a Biosignal
- Speech Perception
- Speech Production
- Cognition and Brain Studies related to Speech
- Phonetics, Phonology, and Prosody
- Analysis of Paralinguistic Information in Speech and Language
- Speaker and Language Identification
- Analysis of Speech and Audio Signals
- Speech Coding and Enhancement
- Speech Synthesis and Spoken Language Generation
- Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR)
- Signal Processing, Acoustic Modeling, Robustness, and Adaptation in ASR
- Architecture, Search, and Linguistic Components of ASR
- Technologies and Systems for new ASR Applications
- Spoken Dialogue Systems
- Summarization and Understanding based on Spoken Language
- Translation and Information Retrieval based on Spoken Language
- Spoken Language Resources
- Evaluation of Spoken Language Technology

INTERSPEECH 2015 will be held in the Maritim International Congress Center in Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony. Dresden is located in the heart of Europe and can easily be reached by train or plane via Dresden or Berlin international airports, which have good connections with major European hubs. Dresden, known as “Florence of the north”, offers a great deal of history and culture to conference delegates.
Papers for the INTERSPEECH 2015 proceedings should be up to 4 pages of text, plus one page (maximum) for references only. Paper submissions must conform to the format defined in the paper preparation guidelines and provided in the authors’ kit on the INTERSPEECH 2015 website, along with the Call for Papers. Optionally, authors may submit additional files, such as multimedia files, which will be included in the official conference proceedings. Authors must declare that their contributions are original and are not being submitted for publication elsewhere (e.g. another conference, workshop, or journal). Papers must be submitted via the online paper submission system. Full paper submission deadline is on Friday 20 March 2015 midnight (11:59pm) GMT, after which updates of the pdf file will be permitted until 27 March 2015 midnight GMT but the title, author, abstract and topics cannot be changed. There will be no extension of paper submission deadlines. The working language of the conference is English, and papers must be written in English, too. Information on the paper submission procedure is available here .
This year, INTERSPEECH pilots the option of virtual attendance for presenters of papers who cannot travel to the conference venue, e.g. for reasons of visa restrictions or for health reasons (authors with insufficient funding are referred to the ISCA grants). The accepted contributions will be presented as posters with the presenter being video streamed via a large display that will be positioned next to the printed poster. Information on the paper submission for virtual presentation is available here .
06 March 2015 paper submission for virtual presentation deadline
20 March 2015 full paper submission deadline
01 June 2015 notification of acceptance/rejection
10 June 2015 camera-ready paper due (including registration of the covering author)
06-10 Sept 2015 Conference
There will be no extension to the full paper submission deadline.
We look forward to welcoming you to INTERSPEECH 2015 in Dresden!
