Paper Submission

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 1, 2023, 23:59, Anywhere on Earth. This deadline applies to both regular papers and to papers submitted to special sessions & challenges. Updates of submitted papers will be accepted until Wednesday, March 8, 2023, 23:59, Anywhere on Earth. Only updates to the pdf and media files, the title, and the abstract will be permitted, while updates to the authors and topics cannot be made. Make sure that your paper complies with all instructions and specifications in the Paper Kit and with the ISCA Code of Ethics for Authors and the Submission Policy.

In contrast to previous INTERSPEECH conferences, reviewing is double-blind. Please take particular care to follow the instructions in the Paper Kit regarding author identity.

For paper submission, you will leave the INTERSPEECH 2023 website and be redirected to the CMT system. If you already have a CMT account, you can login with your existing credentials. If you do not have a CMT account, you will need to create one.

Domain conflicts

These are used to help detect conflicts of interest when assigning reviewers. Please enter your domain conflicts in two places:

  1. in your CMT user account: click your user name, select Domain Conflicts, then enter your domain(s);
  2. for each paper you submit: enter the domain conflicts for all authors of this paper, including the current domain of each author (CMT does not automatically do this based on authors’ CMT accounts).

Submission form

The submission form will ask you to

  • confirm compliance with the ISCA Code of Ethics for Authors, the INTERSPEECH 2023 Pre-prints Policy, and the INTERSPEECH 2023 Conference Policy – please read these before starting your submission
  • agree to the No-show Policy
  • indicate your preferred Presentation Format (oral or poster)
  • state whether you want the paper to be considered for the Best Student Paper award
  • complete a Reproducibility Checklist
  • answer optional questions about
    • the country in which most of the work was conducted
    • the nationality of the first author
    • the race or ethnicity of the first author
    • the self-identified gender of the first author

Reviewers will not have access to the responses for any of the optional questions.

As stated in the Call for Papers, “The Technical Programme Committee will decide which papers to include in the conference programme using peer review as the primary criterion, with secondary criteria of addressing the conference theme, and diversity across the programme as a whole.” Secondary criteria will only be used as tie-breakers when deciding between papers of similar scientific merit. Meta-Reviewers (also known as Area Chairs) may use nationality and country amongst other measures of diversity when assembling the final programme.

Race, ethnicity, and gender are being collected only for statistical monitoring purposes, to help the organisers make INTERSPEECH more diverse and inclusive over time. They will not be used as criteria for paper acceptance. Individually-identifiable responses will only be accessible to the Technical Programme Chairs of INTERSPEECH 2023. Anonymised responses will be shared with ISCA. A statistical summary of the responses will be published.

  • Hold a Ph.D.
  • Published at least one journal article as first author in a speech-related journal (e.g., IEEE/ACM T-ASLP; Speech Communication; Computer, Speech & Language; JASA; Phonetica; Journal of Phonetics; or other comparable journals)
  • Published at least 3 INTERSPEECH/ICASSP/ASRU/SLT or major NLP conference (ACL/EMNLP/NAACL) papers as first author
  • Received at least 100 citations on first authored papers
  • Have an h-index of at least 7 and i10-index of at least 10
  • Be recommended by an ISCA Fellow, ACL Fellow, IEEE Fellow, IEEE Senior Member, or current/past INTERSPEECH Area Chair

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