Important Dates

  • Show & Tell proposals due: May 21, 2021
  • Acceptance/rejection notification: June 11, 2021
  • Final paper and final video due: June 25, 2021

In addition to regular and special sessions, INTERSPEECH 2021 will feature sessions for Show & Tell demonstration. Participants are given the opportunity to demonstrate their most recent progress of developments, and interact with the conference attendees in an informal way, such as a demo, mock-up or any adapted format of their own choice. The contributions must highlight the innovative side of the concept and may relate to a regular paper.

Demonstrations should be based on innovations and fundamental research in areas of speech communication, speech production, perception, acquisition, or speech and language technology and systems.

Submission and Preparation Guidelines

Each Show & Tell submission must contain both a paper of up to 2 pages detailing the demonstration and a video providing a preview of what is going to be shown. The paper (including references) has to follow the format defined in the paper preparation guidelines as detailed in the “INTERSPEECH 2021 Author's Kit”. Please note that the focus of the paper shall be on describing what the visitors will see and experience. The video can simply be recorded with a mobile phone or alike. Submissions will be evaluated by the organizing committee for relevance, originality, clarity, and significance of the proposed demonstration. At least one author of each accepted submission must register for and attend the conference, and demonstrate the system during the Show & Tell sessions.

Each accepted Show & Tell paper will be allocated two pages in the conference proceedings. Furthermore, a final video, which is to be submitted by the final paper deadline, will be made publicly available.

Show & Tell demonstrations will be presented in their dedicated time slot in the conference program. Each presentation space includes

  • one poster board
  • one table
  • a wireless internet connection, and
  • a power outlet

The current plan is to hold Interspeech 2021 in hybrid format with a fully virtual back-up. In case the demonstration cannot be displayed on site, the video will serve as a convincing replacement.

Please submit your proposal to the Show & Tell Chairs via no later than May 21, 2021.
