The Call for Tutorials for INTERSPEECH 2015 has been closed on Mar 20, 2015. You find a copy of the archived call below.
INTERSPEECH conferences are attended by researchers with a long-term track-record in speech sciences and technology, as well as by early-stage researchers or researchers interested in a new domain within the INTERSPEECH areas. With the current edition of INTERSPEECH, we seek to specifically reflect different audiences in the choice of tutorials, where it will clearly be indicated what prior knowledge the audience should have.
As a consequence, we encourage proposals for tutorials addressing introductory topics or advanced topics in an introductory style, and tutorials targeting experienced researchers who want to dig deeper into a given new topic.
Tutorials may introduce an uprising area of speech-related research, or present an overview of an important more established area.
The tutorials can be of either three hours or six hours duration. The tutorials are expected to cover the state-of-the-art of the proposed topics rather than to primarily present the authors own research.
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. As a consequence, we especially encourage tutorials from fields that are directly related with this theme. Of course the call is not restricted to the conference theme, and open to any kind of tutorial related with speech science and technology.

Proposals for the INTERSPEECH 2015 tutorials should be up to 4 pages long. Proposal submissions must conform to the format defined in the tutorial proposal preparation guidelines and provided in the authors’ kit on the INTERSPEECH 2015 website, along with the Call for Tutorials.
