Conference Main Page


ISCA organizes an annual conference, INTERSPEECH, which integrates two previous series of biennial international conferences: EUROSPEECH, the European Conference on Speech Communication and Technology, and ICSLP, the International Conference on Spoken Language Processing. Since 2000, both conferences have been held under the common label INTERSPEECH. The first INTERSPEECH event was ICSLP 2000, which took place in 2000, in Beijing, China.

Previous EUROSPEECH conferences were held in 1989 in Paris (France); 1991 in Genoa (Italy); 1993 in Berlin (Germany); 1995 in Madrid (Spain); 1997 in Rhodes (Greece); and 1999 in Budapest (Hungary); Previous ICSLP conferences, coordinated by the Permanent Council for the Organization of International Conferences on Spoken Language Processing (PC-ICSLP), were held in 1990 in Kobe (Japan); 1992 in Banff (Canada); 1994 in Yokohama (Japan); 1996 in Philadelphia (USA); and 1998 in Sydney (Australia). All INTERSPEECH conferences are recorded chronologically on this page.

INTERSPEECH conferences include papers on all the scientific and technological aspects of Speech. More than 1,000 participants from all over the world attend the conference annually to present their work in oral and poster sessions. Several satellite workshops and a Scientific and Industrial Exhibition highly enrich the conference content. INTERSPEECH conferences may be held in any country, although they generally should not occur in the same continent in two consecutive years. The next INTERSPEECH conferences will be held in Dublin, Ireland (2023), Jerusalem, Israel (2024), and Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2025).

INTERSPEECH papers are indexed in ISI, Engineering Index, Scopus, and Google Scholar. It is rated as Rank A conference by the Computing and Research Education Association of Australasia (CORE).

Codes of Conduct and Ethics


1) All papers submitted to INTERSPEECH 20xx must be original contributions that are not currently submitted to any other conference, workshop, or journal, nor will be submitted to any other conference, workshop, or journal during the review process of INTERSPEECH 20xx. In all such paper submissions, any use of prior material should be cited by a reference to the source of that prior material, including one's own work, i.e., if an author uses earlier existing material, whether from one's own work or that of others, that work should be cited in the paper's list of references.Any violation of this policy may result in sanctions by ISCA, such as a ban on further submissions to ISCA publications by these authors.

2) Each accepted paper to an ISCA Event should be presented by one of the authors in person at the meeting site according to the schedule published. Any paper accepted into the technical program, but not presented on-site, may be withdrawn from the official proceedings. In exceptional situations (justified in an email request to the TPC Chair), a paper may be presented by a colleague.

3) Copyright: By each submission of a paper to Interspeech-20xx, the author(s) hereby warrant(s) that the manuscript has been submitted to ISCA (the International Speech Communication Association) for publication in the Interspeech 20xx Proceedings, IS ORIGINAL AND HAS NOT BEEN SUBMITTED FOR PUBLICATION OR PUBLISHED ELSEWHERE and that all trademark use within the manuscript has been credited to its owner or written permission to use the name has been granted. In addition, the author(s) acknowledge(s) that all images such as tables, screenshots, graphics, etc., do not have a copyright that is held by a third party. The author also attests that legal permission from the copyright holders has been attained for all multimedia or other materials included in the submission. The author(s) agree(s) to, and hereby assign(s) all rights, title and interest, including copyrights, in and to the manuscript to ISCA. The author(s) retain(s) the rights to any intellectual property developed by the author(s) and included in the manuscript. Note that the ISCA reviewing process is confidential. The copyright is provisionally transferred to ISCA at the time of submission of the article. This copyright is definitively assigned to ISCA if the manuscript is accepted after the reviewing process. If the manuscript is not accepted, the copyright transfer to ISCA is thus abrogated. For any article published in INTERSPEECH proceedings, ISCA grants each author permission to use the article in that author's dissertation or in institutional repositories (paper and/or electronic versions), provided that the article is correctly referenced (including page numbers and/or paper number). All authors of a paper have the same permission for reprinting, under the same conditions.

4) Authors are allowed to submit manuscripts posted in institutional and public repositories (such as arXiv) to INTERSPEECH conferences for consideration if the authors are able to transfer all rights, title and interest, including copyrights, for the manuscript to ISCA, i.e., authors have not transferred copyright to another party prior to submission.

5) Authors are required to mention "submitted to INTERSPEECH" with any paper posted on public repositories (such as arXiv). When a paper is rejected for publication, the reference to the paper needs to be changed and all references to INTERSPEECH should be removed. In case of an accept, following publication in the INTERSPEECH proceedings, the reference should be updated to say "Proceedings of INTERSPEECH", and the DOI should be added. Moreover, all authors are required to always refer to the paper in the INTERSPEECH proceedings, and not use the reference of the public repository.

6) Affiliation: Author affiliation should be at the time of final submission of the paper.

7) Papers submitted to ISCA-endorsed events (in particular INTERSPEECH and ISCA workshops) should refer to peer-reviewed publications. References to non-peer-reviewed publications (including public repositories such as arXiv, Preprints and HAL, software and personal communications) should only be made if there is no peer-reviewed publication available, should be kept to a minimum, and should appear as footnotes in the text (i.e., not in the references list). 

8) ISCA No-show Policy: In the case that none of the authors of a paper can attend the conference and present the paper in oral or poster form, and assuming the authors do not wish to withdraw their paper(s) from the Interspeech proceedings, the following policy will be applied:

  1. Authors must immediately inform the TPC Chairs as soon as possible when it is clear that none of the authors can present the paper, providing the reason for the absence and proof. For instance, in the case of health or visa issues, a doctor’s note or visa rejection letter needs to be provided to the TPC Chairs.
  2. Authors will collaborate closely with the TPC chairs in order to find an alternative for the presentation; such an alternative may be a non-author presenting the paper on behalf of the authors, a proper-length, pre-recorded video of the the oral presentation, or an audio-visual communication channel for the duration of the presentation (depending on the technical possibilities of the conference location), etc.
  3. The TPC Chairs will assess whether the reasons presented by the no-show authors deem to be substantiated, and whether sufficient steps have been taken to not harm the smooth running of the conference. If the TPC chairs judge the reasons to be substantiated, the no-show may be accepted without further sanctions. If the presented reasons do not seem substantiated, the TPC Chairs are required to delete the respective paper(s) from the proceedings (if still possible) and from the ISCA online archive.
