     - Human-Robot and Human-Machine Spoken Interaction
     - The Paralinguistic Challenges

To participate to the Show & Tell, submit a 2-page proposal (in pdf 
format) describing the concept from the technical point-of-view, its 
innovative side and the format under which you intend to present it. 
Authors are allowed to include links to web pages in the pdf proposal.

*Panel Session*

We are pleased to announce an Industry Panel Session at Interspeech 2013.

Linking Research to Industry: The practitioner's view on "Competitive 
Manufacturing for Innovative Products and Services based on speech 
technologies" in Robotics, Video games, Serious games, Therapeutic 

Objectives: The aim of this panel session is to give Interspeech 
participants from industry an opportunity to share their views on the 
recent advances in spoken language research, the remaining challenges, 
and the diversity of applications and to foster the exchange between 
academia and industrial practice.


We are happy to announce 6 high-level tutorials in conjunction with 
Interspeech 2013.

In accordance with the special focus of the conference, the programme of 
tutorials intends to provide a good balance between computer sciences 
and human sciences related topics.

Interspeech 2013 also introduces a mix between tutorials on advanced 
topics (recent advances in ...) and tutorials providing the necessary 
basis on a particular subject (crash course), mix that we hope will be 
found attractive by the participants.
