Call for Papers

Important Dates

Paper Acceptance Notification: 17th May 2023 

INTERSPEECH is the world’s largest and most comprehensive conference on the science and technology of spoken language processing. INTERSPEECH conferences emphasise interdisciplinary approaches addressing all aspects of speech science and technology, ranging from basic theories to advanced applications.

INTERSPEECH 2023 will feature oral and poster sessions, plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, special sessions and challenges, show & tell, exhibits, and satellite events.

The theme of INTERSPEECH 2023 is Inclusive Spoken Language Science and Technology – Breaking Down Barriers. Whilst it is not a requirement to address this theme, we encourage submissions that: report performance metric distributions in addition to averages; break down results by demographic; employ diverse data; evaluate with diverse target users; report barriers that could prevent other researchers adopting a technique, or users from benefitting. This is not an exhaustive list, and authors are encouraged to discuss the implications of the conference theme for their own work.

Papers are especially welcome from authors who identify as being under-represented in the speech science and technology community, whether that is because of geographical location, economic status, race, age, gender, sexual orientation or any other characteristic.

Paper Submission

INTERSPEECH 2023 seeks original and innovative papers covering all aspects of speech science and technology. The working language of the conference is English, so papers must be written in English. The paper length is up to four pages in two columns with an additional page for references only. Submitted papers must conform to the format defined in the author’s kit provided on the conference website, and may optionally be accompanied by multimedia files. Authors must declare that their contributions are original and that they have not submitted their papers elsewhere for publication. Papers must be submitted electronically and will be evaluated through rigorous peer review on the basis of novelty and originality, technical correctness, clarity of presentation, key strengths, and quality of references. The Technical Programme Committee will decide which papers to include in the conference programme using peer review as the primary criterion, with secondary criteria of addressing the conference theme, and diversity across the programme as a whole.
