Call For Papers

The second edition of the Symposium on Security & Privacy in Speech Communication (SPSC), this year combined with the 2nd VoicePrivacy Challenge workshop, focuses on speech and voice through which we express ourselves. As speech communication can be used to command virtual assistants to transport emotion or to identify oneself, the symposium tries to give answers to the question on how we can strengthen security and privacy for speech representation types in user-centric human/machine interaction? The symposium therefore sees that interdisciplinary exchange is in high demand and aims to bring together researchers and practitioners across multiple disciplines including signal processing, cryptography, security, human-computer interaction, law, and anthropology. The SPSC Symposium addresses interdisciplinary topics.

Topics regarding the technical perspective include:

Privacy-preserving speech communication

speech recognition and spoken language processing
speech perception, production and acquisition
speech synthesis and spoken language generation
speech coding and enhancement
speaker and language identification
phonetics, phonology and prosody
paralinguistics in speech and language


privacy engineering and secure computation
network security and adversarial robustness
mobile security

Machine learning

federated learning
disentangled representations
differential privacy

Natural language processing

web as corpus, resources and evaluation
tagging, summarization, syntax and parsing
question answering, discourse and pragmatics
machine translation and document analysis
linguistic theories and psycholinguistics
inference of semantics and information extraction

Topics regarding the humanities’ view include:

Human-computer interfaces (speech as medium)

usable security and privacy
ubiquitous computing
pervasive computing and communication
cognitive science

Ethics and law

privacy and data protection
media and communication
identity management
electronic mobile commerce
data in digital media

Digital humanities

acceptance and trust studies
user experience research on practice
co-development across disciplines
situated ethics
STS perspectives

We welcome contributions on related topics, as well as progress reports, project disseminations, theoretical discussions, and “work in progress”. There is also a dedicated PhD track. In addition, participants from academia, industry, and public institutions, as well as interested students are welcome to attend the conference without having to make their own contribution. All accepted submissions will appear in the conference proceedings published in ISCA Archive. The workshop will take place mainly in person at the Incheon National University (Korea) with additional support of participants willing to join virtually.


Papers intended for the SPSC Symposium should be up to eight pages of text. The length should be chosen appropriately to present the topic to an interdisciplinary community. Paper submissions must conform to the format defined in the paper preparation guidelines and as detailed in the author’s kit. Papers must be submitted via the online paper submission system. The working language of the conference is English, and papers must be written in English.


At least three single-blind reviews will be provided, and we aim to obtain feedback from interdisciplinary experts for each submission. The review criteria applied to regular papers will be adapted for VoicePrivacy Challenge papers to be more in keeping with systems descriptions and results.
