ISCA SPSC Symposium 2021 : 1st ISCA Symposium on Security and Privacy in Speech Communication
Call For Papers
1st Symposium on Security and Privacy in Speech Communication
Virtual, November 10-12, 2021
CALL FOR PAPERS
The FIRST EDITION OF THE SPSC SYMPOSIUM aims at laying the first building blocks required to address the question how researchers and practitioners might bridge the gap between social perceptions and their technical counterparts with respect to what it means for our voices and speech to be secure and private.
The symposium brings together researchers and practitioners across multiple disciplines – more specifically: signal processing, cryptography, security, human-computer interaction, law, and anthropology. By integrating different disciplinary perspectives on speech-enabled technology and applications, the SPSC Symposium OPENS OPPORTUNITIES TO COLLECT AND MERGE INPUT REGARDING TECHNICAL AND SOCIAL PRACTICES, as well as A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE SITUATED ETHICS AT PLAY.
The SPSC Symposium addresses interdisciplinary topics.
