Call For Papers

INTERSPEECH 2015 - Dresden, Germany
Call for paper: submission for INTERSPEECH 2015 with Virtual Presentation

Paper submission deadline for Virtual Presentation : March 06, 2015 (24h CET)
Web page:


This year, INTERSPEECH pilots the option of virtual attendance for presenters of papers who cannot travel to the conference venue, e.g. for reasons of visa restrictions or for health reasons (authors with insufficient funding are referred to the ISCA grants). The accepted contributions will be presented as posters with the presenter being video streamed via a large display that will be positioned next to the printed poster. There will be a full duplex video and audio connection to allow for questions and comments from the audience.

Note that the number of virtual presentations will be strictly limited to a maximum of 20 papers, and that the deadline for contributions aiming at a virtual presentation is 14 days prior to the regular paper deadline. INTERSPEECH anticipates an overall paper acceptance rate of roughly 50%. For the case that we receive more than 40 submissions aiming at a virtual presentation, authors of papers with virtual presentation might have to expect a lower acceptance rate for these submissions. In that case, the authors will be informed and will be given the option of converting their paper into a regular submission, within the regular paper deadline. Authors not making use of this option will face a potentially lower acceptance rate than that for regular submissions. Papers submitted for virtual presentation must not be submitted for regular on-site presentation in parallel.

Authors wishing to submit for virtual presentation tick the option “virtual presentation only” in the submission portal. All papers submitted for virtual presentation will be subject to the normal review process, to guarantee scientific soundness. Accepted contributions for virtual presentation will be subject to a handling fee of 50€, in addition to the regular conference fee (student or full registrants).
Presenters of contributions with virtual presentation may apply for ISCA grants. In case that the grant is accepted, the provided funding will be restricted to the conference fee and the handling fee.
