Program | Conference Overview

The technical program of the Interspeech 2018 conference starts with a talk by the ISCA medallist of the year, Dr. Bishnu S. Atal, who happens to hail from India, and educated at the famous Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The technical program committee has worked tirelessly to come up with an excellent five-day program, which includes plenary talks, oral and poster presentations, tutorials, special sessions and events, show & tell sessions, exhibits and social events.

We have 9 Technical Sessions that contain several oral, poster, and show-and-tell sessions running in parallel. The glittering line-up of Keynote Addresses is complemented by Perspective Talks, first time this year, which will offer a bird’s-eye view of research in a chosen topic. These talks will serve as introduction to the uninitiated, while offering potentially new insights to experts. Interspeech 2018 received several excellent proposals for special sessions including those related to the theme such as Indian language speech technology, and technologies for code switching. We are happy to report that the Special Sessions received a large number of submissions and constitute a prominent component of the technical program. We also have a parallel stream for Show & Tell demonstrations. The conference technical program is preceded by the tutorials, judiciously selected by the Tutorials Committee from a number of submitted proposals. Several exciting Satellite Events are slated for days both before and after Interspeech in Hyderabad and at other locations in India.

In addition to attending technical sessions, we hope that participants will be able to take some time off to enjoy and experience the wide variety of options for food, shopping and historical monuments that the city offers.
