    Dear ISCA member,

    Unfortunately, at regular time intervals, e-mails are being send to individuals within our community that seemingly come from the president (or another ISCA board member), asking for help and/or money in vague terms.

    Please note, no ISCA board member will ever send emails to ask for money nor would we ask for help in vague terms. If we ask for help it will be clear what we ask of you. If you are unsure whether the email is legit, assume it is not. If we do need your help, we will reach out again.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about this. Please ignore these e-mails.

    Best wishes,

    Odette Scharenborg, ISCA President

    ISCA is currently moving to a new web portal: WildApricot. This includes a new website, and a new portal for membership services. The new website will already be more informative than the old one, and will later enable more active participation from our community (SIGs, etc.), as we want to make it more interactive and target-oriented.

    For the time being, parts of our services will still need to be accessed through portals on our old system (linked from the new website), including the paper archive, and applications for workshops and grants. We are working on moving these functionalities to the new platform as well.

    Please explore the new website and get an impression of ISCA activities and services. Become involved in shaping the new system for the benefit of our community.

    In preparation for Interspeech 2024, we are currently searching for reviewers to evaluate submitted manuscripts.

    If you are not already a reviewer for ISCA conferences, we encourage you to sign up through the ISCA Reviewer Portal.

    Click here to see the criteria for eligibility as a reviewer and access to the portal.

    Please use the same email address as your CMT account. If you do not have a CMT account, you will need to create one, as reviewing will take place fully within CMT.

    To help conference organisers match the papers allocated to you, please also register to the Toronto Paper Matching System using the same email address as in CMT. This should result in you being assigned papers that better match your interests and expertise.

    Due to the current security situation in Israel and after consulting the ISCA board, the Interspeech 2024 organizing committee decided to move the conference venue to another country in the eastern Mediterranean – Greece. Details will be provided on the conference website.

    We hope that the Interspeech Conference will be hosted in Jerusalem in the future.
