In 2007, ISCA began its Fellows Program to recognize and honor outstanding members who have made significant contributions to the science and technology of speech communication. To qualify for this distinction, a candidate must have been an ISCA member for five years or more with a minimum of ten years experience in the field. Nominations may be made by any ISCA member (see Nomination Form). Fellows may be recognized by their outstanding technical contributions and/or continued significant service to ISCA. The supporting case for the candidate's nomination should include up to 3 major contributions which have had impact on the speech community and/or society in general. A nomination should be supported by 4 references from ISCA Fellows or Board members. Current ISCA Board members are not eligible for nomination.

Fellows are selected by a Fellow Selection Committee of nine members who each serve three-year terms. Members of the Committee will be chosen from ISCA Fellows by the ISCA Board. Fellow Selection Committee members will avoid writing references for Fellow candidates.

The total number of Fellows selected in any one year will not exceed one-third percent of the total ISCA membership in that year.

New ISCA Fellows will be announced each year at INTERSPEECH.

Nominations should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by February 10 each year. Those who plan to nominate are strongly advised to send brief information on candidates (candidate's name and affiliation) to the above email address before January 10 with your name and contact email address. You should receive an acknowledgement within a week.
