Welcome

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to welcome you to Interspeech 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden!

The conference theme will be “Situated interaction”. The overall goal is to provide a broad approach to speech communication issues integrating speech technology and pragmatic aspects of human conversational speech communication behaviour in different interaction contexts. All branches of speech communication science are welcome – be it human-machine interaction or human-human interaction in groups of different sizes, face-to-face or remote, exploring the affordances of speech communication technology.

Interspeech 2017 will be held at Stockholm University campus, which is situated on the northern part of The Royal National City Park, served by Stockholm’s metropolitan’s good public transportation network. I look forward to welcome you to a scientifically inspiring event enhanced by the natural and harmonic environment of Stockholm University campus and I hope Interspeech 2017 will be a highly positive scientific, social and aesthetical experience for all the participants.

Francisco Lacerda
General Chair

Theme

The theme of INTERSPEECH 2017 is Situated interaction.
Face-to-face interaction is the primary use of speech, and arguably also the richest, most effective and most natural kind of speech communication. The situation, context and human behaviors are intrinsic parts that continuously shape and form the interaction. In attempting to understand this situated interaction, we face a fruitful and real challenge for the speech communication community: To investigate what kinds of situational awareness, social sensibilities and conversational abilities we should endow machines with for them to engage in conversations with humans on human terms.

INTERSPEECH 2017 emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach covering all aspects of speech science and technology spanning basic theories to applications. In addition to regular oral and poster sessions, the conference will also feature plenary talks by internationally renowned experts, tutorials, special sessions, show & tell sessions, and exhibits. A number of satellite events will take place immediately before and after the conference. Please follow the details which will be published at the INTERSPEECH website interspeech2017.org.
