Satellite Workshops

The Organizing Committee of INTERSPEECH 2018 is now inviting proposals for satellite workshops, to be held in proximity to the main conference.

The Organizing Committee will work to facilitate the organization of such satellite workshops, to stimulate discussion in research areas related to speech and language, at locations in India, and around the same time as INTERSPEECH 2018. We are particularly looking forward to proposals from neighboring countries. If you are interested in organizing a satellite workshop, or would like a planned event to be listed as an official satellite event, please contact the Satellite Workshop coordinators.

The Satellite Workshop coordinators along with the INTERSPEECH team will help to connect (potential) workshop organizers with local contacts in India, if needed, and will try to be helpful with logistics such as payment, publicity, and coordination with ISCA or other events.

Important Dates

  • Submissions opens: Friday October 13, 2017
  • Submission deadline: Friday December 8, 2017
