Welcome to INTERSPEECH 2020

INTERSPEECH has grown into the world's largest technical conference focused on speech processing and application with over 1000 attendees and over 600 papers. The conferences emphasize interdisciplinary approaches addressing all aspects of speech science and technology, ranging from basic theories to advanced applications.

The 21st INTERSPEECH will be staged in Shanghai International Convention Center, from September 14-18, 2020. Widely regarded as the most important cultural, commercial centers of China, Shanghai will offer a great deal of history and culture to INTERSPEECH 2020 delegates.

It is widely believed that technologies are not the only factors that restrict the development of speech processing. The emotions and the cognitive abilities are also playing a vital role in friendly and harmonious man-machine speech communication and human-oriented intelligence technologies. INTERSPEECH 2020 will therefore be organized around the topic“Cognitive Intelligence for Speech Processing”. We hope to provide a broad approach to speech processing issues. In addition to regular oral and poster sessions, this event will feature plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, special sessions, show & tell sessions, and exhibits. A number of satellite events will also take place before and after the conference. Please follow the details which will be published at the INTERSPEECH website interspeech2020.org.
