Letter to our Partners
Dear Partners of INTERSPEECH 2019,
INTERSPEECH has become the world’s largest and most comprehensive conference on the science and technology of spoken language processing. The conference features world-class speakers, oral and poster sessions, tutorials, special sessions and challenges, show&tell, exhibitions and satellite events. An important objective of INTERSPEECH is to be an arena for scientific exchange in all aspects of the Speech Communication Sciences. With its focus on spoken language, it is at the heart of artificial intelligence as MIT’s Josh Tenenbaum brings it to the point: “There’s no way you can have an AI system that’s humanlike that doesn’t have language at the heart of it”. So be sure that this will be a world-class event attracting large crowds from the AI, machine learning, and data science communities at the same time.
INTERSPEECH has grown significantly over the past 5 years with an all-time record of 1800 participants so far, and we anticipate that the event in Sep. 2019 in Graz, Austria, will be the first to break the barrier of 2000 participants from all over the world. You can help us to achieve this success! We are seeking the support of all organizations related to the Speech Communication field, ranging from the humanities to speech science, technology, and engineering as well as artificial intelligence: public institutions, academic partners, small, medium or large enterprises, publishers, project consortia, and more.
We are pleased to invite you to take part in this flagship event as a sponsor or exhibitor. Your involvement will play a significant role in advancing science and technology, and help us keep registration fees affordable. We will help you to promote your organization as a key player in the field by your presence in Graz, your visibility on the conference site, conference material and website, and possibly by your participation to the student grants fund, your sponsoring of a social event, etc. Among the most significant benefits that your support will bring you is the opportunity to meet and network with our large crowd of conference attendees where many of them are early-career researchers on the move.
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU AS A STRONG PARTNER OF INTERSPEECH 2019 IN GRAZ!
