--- Welcome message ---

Dear colleagues,

In a few months, the 2013 edition of the Interspeech Conference will 
start. We look forward to welcoming you in Lyon, France.

In the meantime, a new version of the conference website has been 
launched to provide you with extended information to prepare your 
participation to the event next August: http://www.interspeech2013.org

As of today, prospective authors are formally invited to prepare their 
paper submissions.

The Interspeech conferences reflect the dynamism of our scientific 
community, which has steadily strengthened over the years.

We are looking forward to receiving, from all areas of the world, an 
abundant flow of high-quality contributions on the wide range of topics 
covered by the conference.

Frédéric Bimbot (chair), Cécile Fougeron (co-chair), François Pellegrino

--- General Information ---

Paper format

 From this year on, a new paper format will be used: 4 pages of text 
plus one page (maximum) for references only. This will facilitate the 
sometimes difficult arbitration between work description and citation 

Paper submission procedure

Authors will be asked to determine to which topic(s) their contributions 
relates (see list of areas and topics on the website) and/or if they 
wish to contribute to a special session (see list below). Under the 
coordination of the Technical Programme Chairs (Lori Lamel and Pascal 
Perrier) and with the supervision of a pool of 28 area chairs, each 
paper proposal will be reviewed by at least three specialists of the 
area to which it belongs. Papers must be submitted via the on-line paper 
submission system, accessible through the conference website. The 
deadline for submitting a paper is March 18th, 2013.

Registration fees

The definitive fees have not been fixed yet, but our target is to be 
within the range of previous Interspeech editions (that is 520 € in 
Florence, 470 € in Portland, for ISCA member, full-delegate early 
registration). The fees will be announced about a week before the paper 
submission deadline.

Student/retired participants

Students will benefit from reduced rates (-50% or more) and will be 
offered the possibility to opt for a student accommodation package at an 
attractive cost (typically, in the range of 200-250 € for 5 nights). A 
significant number of grants will be offered, to further reduce the 
financial burden for student (or retired) attendees, when needed. Keep 
posted for more info.

--- Special sessions proposal ---

Special sessions at Interspeech are intended to bring together 
researchers in relevant fields of interest, either on a targeted topic, 
or beyond the traditional scope of the conference.

For Interspeech 2013, eleven proposals of special sessions are currently 

Prospective authors are offered the option to relate their paper 
proposal to one of these sessions. All papers relating to a special 
session will follow the regular reviewing process, by anonymous and 
independent reviewers.

Only special sessions with a sufficient number of accepted papers will 
ultimately be scheduled in the final
program. All other accepted papers will be presented in an adequate 
regular session.

To consult the list of special session proposals :

The final list of special sessions will be determined and published 
after the review process, on May 22, 2013.

--- Information about satellite workshops ---

We are happy to announce that over a dozen satellite workshops are 
organized before or after the Interspeech conference.

This is an opportunity to participate to specific scientific events 
related to current "hot topics" in speech science.

These workshops take place in locations with easy access to/from Lyon 
(Grenoble, Paris, Aix-en-Provence, Barcelona and more…).

More information on satellite workshops can be found on the Interspeech 
web site :
