First Announcement
http://www.interspeech2013.org/calls/

INTERSPEECH is the world's largest and most comprehensive conference on 
challenges surrounding the science and technology of Spoken Language 
Processing (SLP) both in humans and machines. It is our great pleasure 
to announce that Interspeech 2013 will be hosted by the Center of 
Congress of Lyon (France), under the sponsorship of the International 
Speech Communication Association (ISCA).

Interspeech 2013 will be the 14th conference in the annual series of 
Interspeech events and will be held in Lyon, France, 25-29 August 2013.

The theme of Interspeech 2013 is "Speech in Life Sciences and Human 
Societies". Life sciences cover a large set of disciplines, such as 
biology, medicine, anthropology, or ecology, and deal with living 
organisms and their organization, life processes, and relationships to 
each other and their environment. In that respect, speech appears as a 
key aspect of human activity that runs across these multiple sides of 
life sciences. Besides the conventional acoustic and linguistic 
viewpoints of speech communication, biology, psychology and sociology 
provide additional angles to approach speech as the keystone means of 
communication, cognition and interaction in the Human societies. Under 
this theme the conference will emphasize an interdisciplinary approach 
covering all aspects of speech science and technology spanning the basic 
theories to applications.

Besides regular oral and poster sessions, plenary talks by 
internationally renowned experts, tutorials, exhibits, and special 
sessions are planned. For the complete Call for Papers and other Calls 
please visit our website at: www.interspeech2013.org

We look forward to welcoming you to INTERSPEECH 2013 in Lyon!

Sincerely,
