Call for Papers
3rd SPSC Symposium + 3rd VoicePrivacy Challenge

This is an ISCA Satellite event to be held Aug 19th in Dublin co-located with Interspeech:


The third edition of the Symposium on Security & Privacy in Speech Communication, this year combined with the 3rd VoicePrivacy Challenge, 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 – more specifically: signal processing, cryptography, security, human-computer interaction, law, and anthropology.

The VoicePrivacy initiative is spearheading the effort to develop privacy preservation solutions for speech technology. It aims to consolidate the newly formed community to develop the task and metrics and to benchmark progress in anonymization solutions using common datasets, protocols, and metrics. VoicePrivacy takes the form of a competitive challenge. This year, participants are required to develop algorithms for attacker systems against speaker anonymization systems. All the participants are encouraged to submit to the SPSC Symposium papers related to their challenge entry, as well as other scientific papers related to developing attack models for speaker anonymization systems, voice privacy, and anonymization. More details can be found on the VoicePrivacy Challenge webpage:

We invite long and short papers related to speech security and privacy, including interdisciplinary topics.

Long and short workshop papers: June 5th
VoicePrivacy papers: June 5th
Author notification: July 5th
VoicePrivacy challenge results: July 15th
Camera-read: July 31st
Symposium in Dublin (hybrid): August 19th
