ISCA is financially supporting the Christian Benoit Award. Information about the 2021 award can be found here:
Each year ISCA awards 3 best student papers at INTERSPEECH based on anonymous reviewing and presentation at the conference. The Interspeech Area Chairs nominate candidate papers that are assessed by a jury with representatives from the ISCA Board, Area Chairs and the Interspeech Technical Program Chairs. The jury for the best student paper award is impartial, i.e. members cannot participate in the voting if (s)he is in any way involved in/with any of the award candidate. Each paper is awarded 500 euros to be split between the student authors. Best Papers of the journals Speech Communication, and Computer Speech and Language are also announced by ISCA during INTERSPEECH.
