Meeting Description:

It is our great pleasure to announce that InterSpeech 2012 will be hosted by the Center for Spoken Language Understanding, with support from the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA). InterSpeech 2012 will be the 13th conference in the annual series of Interspeech events. It will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA, 9-13 September 2012. InterSpeech 2012 will encompass the same broad range of topics as has been the proud tradition of this conference ever since its inauguration in 1990.

In an effort to further enrich this tradition, it will have an area of special emphasis ('Spoken Language Processing and Biomedicine'), inviting contributions in assistive communication, language markers for neurological disorders, and computational cross-fertilization between spoken language processing and computational biology. The venue of InterSpeech 2012 will be the Portland Hilton.

InterSpeech is the world's largest and most comprehensive conference on issues surrounding the science and technology of spoken language processing (SLP), both in humans and in machines. The conference will emphasize an interdisciplinary approach covering all aspects of speech science and technology spanning basic theories to applications.

Call for Papers:
