Sadaoki Furui Workshop

Sadly, one of the great pioneers and creative geniuses of speech processing, Dr. Sadaoki Furui, passed away on 31st July 2022 at the age of 76. Because of the important role that Sadaoki Furui played not only for us as scientists, but also as a co-founder of our community, the first ISCA presidents who preceded and succeeded Sadaoki Furui and the current ISCA president organized a virtual workshop in his honor. The workshop had contributions from many individuals of our community, and there were many personal viewpoints and historic events cited by close colleagues and friends of Sadaoki Furui. The organizers would like to thank all attendees for their very personal and valuable contributions, and for their interest in the workshop.

A (non-professional) video recording of the workshop can be found here:

Call for INTERSPEECH 2023 reviewers

In preparation for INTERSPEECH 2023, we are currently searching for reviewers to evaluate submitted manuscripts. The reviewing period will be between 8th March and 19th April 2023.

If you are not already a reviewer for ISCA conferences, we encourage you to sign up through the ISCA Reviewer Portal.

Please use the same email address as your CMT account. If you do not have a CMT account, you will need to create one, as reviewing will take place fully within CMT.

To help conference organisers match the papers allocated to you, please also register with the Toronto Paper Matching System using the same email address as in CMT. This should result in you being assigned papers that better match your interests and expertise.


Election of members for the Board of ISCA (4-year term: 2023-2027)

The ISCA Board currently has 15 members from 11 countries (see full list below). Members are elected to the Board for a period of four years and no member may serve on the Board for more than two consecutive terms. The following Board members will have served for two terms of 4 years in August so will be retiring: Sebastian MÖLLER, John HANSEN and Torbjørn SVENDSEN. Nobuaki MINEMATSU, Jianhua TAO and Margaret ZELLERS will be ending their first term. Thus we have openings for 6 members for the 2023-2027 term.

In accordance with the ISCA by-laws, elections to the Board will take place in April-May 2023. We invite nominations from the ISCA membership. Each nomination requires the support of three members of the Association and agreement from the candidate (e.g., by email). The ISCA statutes specify a maximum of three Board members from any one country. Each ISCA member will be asked to cast a anonymous ballot in the election, via a survey website.

Members elected to the Board will be expected to have one of the areas of responsibility listed below, to commit time to furthering the work of ISCA in their area, to attend the two-day Board meetings that take place at each annual INTERSPEECH conference and to participate in additional virtual meetings during the year (teleconferences). All candidates should be aware of these obligations and commit themselves to fulfilling them before agreeing to be nominated.

The Board will accept nominations either from proposers or self-nominations, as long as indication of support is provided.
