--- General Information ---

Paper format

 From this year on, a new paper format will be used: 4 pages of text 
plus one page (maximum) for references only. This will facilitate the 
sometimes difficult arbitration between work description and citation 

Paper submission procedure

Authors will be asked to determine to which topic(s) their contributions 
relates (see list of areas and topics on the website) and/or if they 
wish to contribute to a special session (see list below). Each paper 
proposal will be reviewed by at least three specialists of the area to 
which it belongs. Papers must be submitted via the on-line paper 
submission system, accessible through the conference website.

Registration fees and conference costs

Early registration fees for full-delegate ISCA members are set to 520 €, 
including the conference banquet. Students will benefit from a reduced 
rate of 50% (i.e. 260 €). In order to keep overall costs low, an 
accomodation package will be proposed to students, in the range of 250 € 
for 5 nights + breakfast. Grants will also be available, to further 
reduce financial burden.

and other Special Events

Call for Show & Tell
Submission Deadline: April 19, 2013

Notification of acceptance: May 22, 2013

Show & Tell is a special event organized during the conference, where 
participants are given the opportunity to demonstrate their most recent 
progress, developments or innovation tracks, and interact with the 
conference attendees in an informal way, such as a talk, a poster, a 
mockup, a demo, or any adapted format of their own choice. These 
contributions usually (but do not have to) relate to a paper and they 
must highlight the innovative side of the concept.

Each proposition for the Show & Tell sessions will be peer-reviewed. The 
originality, significance, quality, and clarity of each submission will 
be evaluated.

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, in the pdf proposal, links to web pages. 
Proposal should be submitted to the following e-mail address: 
is13-showntell at inria.fr

Each accepted Show & Tell will be allocated 2 pages maximum in the 
conference proceedings, plus the possibility to include some multimedia 
content. At least one author of each accepted submission must register 
to the conference and demonstrate the system during the Show & Tell 

A Google Show & Tell Prize of 500 Euros will be awarded to the most 
innovative participation.

Other Special Events:

Colleagues are invited to propose other special events. See the website 
for more info on the expected format. An example of such Special Event 
is the Computational Paralinguistics Challenge.

All new proposals of innovative events will be warmly welcomed and 
carefully considered, so be imaginative ! Initiatives from young 
researchers will be specifically encouraged and supported.
