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 advanced applications.

The theme of INTERSPEECH 2021 held in Brno, Czechia, is “Speech everywhere”. Speech is also becoming an indispensable part of all AI systems and no longer considered an isolated block. We are seeing the emergence of larger systems that treat speech, vision, language, interfaces, external knowledge in an integrated way, and learn multi-modal embeddings, or otherwise jointly optimize performance. “Speech everywhere” also requires speech engineering to become more aware of the principles of human speech communication processes, and we therefore specifically encourage contributions in human speech processing.

In addition to regular oral and poster sessions, INTERSPEECH 2021 will feature plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, special sessions and challenges, show & tell sessions, and exhibits. A number of satellite events will also take place around INTERSPEECH 2021.

Paper Submission

Papers intended for INTERSPEECH 2021 should be up to four pages of text. An optional fifth page can be used for references only. Paper submissions must conform to the format defined in the paper preparation guidelines and as detailed in the author’s kit on the conference webpage. Submissions may also be accompanied by additional files such as multimedia files. Authors must declare that their contributions are original and have not been submitted elsewhere for publication. Papers must be submitted via the online paper submission system. The working language of the conference is English, and papers must be written in English.

The paper submission deadline is March 26, 2021, see also the full set of Important dates.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to your participation in INTERSPEECH 2021!
