Student Events at Interspeech 2020



The Student Advisory Committee of ISCA (ISCA-SAC) is pleased to announce that we are planning three student events in the context of INTERSPEECH2020. This year, the events will take place ONLINE around the same time as INTERSPEECH in Shanghai.

1. 2nd Mentoring

The event gives PhD students the opportunity to engage in a discussion with early-career and senior researchers from academia and industry. ISCA-SAC aims at providing a warm environment for discussing questions concerning a variety of topics, such as research in academia and industry, equal opportunities, publishing, and professional development.

Application required. Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

2. 6th Doctoral Consortium

The event provides an opportunity for PhD students, especially those early in the process of identifying a thesis topic, to present their research and discuss it with a panel of experts. The discussion includes feedback on the evolution and progress of their research. It helps them to identify a road-map toward refining their thesis.

Application required. Submit extended two-page abstract until August 1, 2020.

3. 7th Students Meet Experts

The event consists of a panel discussion with experts from industry and academia, in which the questions of the student audience are discussed. All Bachelor, Master, and Phd students are invited to join. After the event students have the opportunity to meet the experts in person and follow up with more in-depth questions.

Registration requested. We collect questions for the experts during the registration process.
