Call for Papers

The “SpeD 2023” Organizing Committee warmly invites you to attend the 12th Conference on Speech Technology and Human-Computer Dialogue, in Bucharest, Romania.

The conference will bring together scientists, developers, and professionals to present their work, meet colleagues, discuss new ideas, and build collaboration between university, research center, and commercial sector research groups. The technical program will include oral sessions, keynotes by renowned speakers, and demonstrations of latest research on a wide range of topics positioned at the forefront of science and engineering in speech technology and human-computer dialogue.

The conference will be held in-person in Bucharest, at the Research Institute of the University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest “CAMPUS” – an advanced research and development center for multi- and inter-disciplinary technologies. In exceptional and justified cases (health reasons, travel issues, or other problems), online attendance (via video link) is allowed and supported.

The “SpeD” conference series is sponsored by IEEE and EURASIP (technical sponsors). For all previous editions since 2009, the “SpeD” Proceedings were indexed by IEEE Xplore® Digital Library and by Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index. This year accepted papers will also be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. They will also be sent for indexing in Web of Science.
