  • Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities: there is still time and opportunities for sponsorship of Interspeech 2019. Since ISCA is a non-profit organization, we strive to provide support for our community in a cost effective way. Many of the sponsorship opportunities directly help students and young researchers who might otherwise not be able to attend by providing travel grants so that can present their work and see the latest breakthroughs in science and technology for speech communications. If your organisation has the resources, please consider even a modest sponsorship. See here for details.  
  • ISCA-SAC Student Advisory Committee: a number of events are being organized by ISCA-SAC to support student development including a mentoring program, Doctoral Consortium, hackathon, and a Workshop for Young Female Researchers in Speech Science & Technology. We encourage all students and young researchers attending to participate in these events!
  • Interspeech 2019 innovations:
    • Survey Talks: this Interspeech, mini survey talks will be given that are integrated into the technical program. These are expected to encourage our ISCA members to expand their “comfort” space and go to areas outside of your main specialization! 
    • Childcare: Support will be organized in three different ways, first by offering a flexible childcare facility, second by organizing an INTERSPEECH 2019 parenting community, and third by implementing an INTERSPEECH 2019 policy for babywearing and breastfeeding.
