INTERSPEECH 2020 and Coronavirus (Covid-19) (updated 16th Febuary 2020)

Many colleagues intending to participate in Interspeech 2020 or its associated workshops will be concerned about the impact of the coronavirus (Covid-19) on the staging of Interspeech in Shanghai. The conference organisers and the ISCA board are continuing to closely monitor the situation on a daily basis.  So far Shanghai is not seriously affected and the organisation of Interspeech 2020 has not changed. We are making preparations in case we need to change the location, timing of Interspeech 2020 and/or submission deadlines. We will inform ISCA members and the Speech Communication community of any developments which might affect your participation at Interspeech 2020 promptly.
