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. An important part of the conference are the tutorials held on the first day of the conference (30th August 2021). Speakers with long and deep expertise in speech will provide their audience with a rich learning experience and an exposure to longstanding research problems, contemporary topics of research as well as emerging areas.

We encourage proposals for addressing introductory or advanced topics in an introductory style as well as for targeting experienced researchers who want to dig deeper into a given new topic. Tutorials, each 3-hour duration, may introduce an emerging area of speech-related research, or present an overview of an established area of research, rather than focus on the presenter’s individual research.
