3rd Doctoral Consortium

Date: Sunday, August 20 from 10:00 - 17:00
Location: KTH

The 3rd Doctoral Consortium at Interspeech will provide students working on speech-related topics with an opportunity to discuss their doctoral research with experts from their fields, and receive feedback on their PhD projects.

The Doctoral Consortium will be a one-day workshop on Sunday, August 20 at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Participants will be asked to make short presentations (30min) summarizing their doctoral work which will then be followed by an intensive discussion (15min) with peers and experts.
Prospective and current doctoral students from all speech-related disciplines are invited to apply. Participants will be selected based their submission of a two-page extended abstract describing PhD work.
This event is organized by the Student Advisory Committee of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA-SAC).

Guidelines
You are invited to submit an Extended Abstract to the Doctoral Consortium describing your PhD work. This invitation is open to students with papers accepted to Interspeech 2017.
These should be up to two (2) pages of text and figures, plus one page (maximum) for references.
Papers should be well organised and clearly specify:
- The motivation for the research and the key research question/s
- The aims of the research
- Related work
- The research methodology used and/or proposed to achieve the research aims
- The results from completed work
- The planned future work
- The main contribution(s) of the research
Submissions may contain previously published material, as a part of explaining the student’s completed work. However, submissions should address individual’s PhD as whole and not simply be shortened versions of submissions to the main Interspeech conference or any other conference.

Submission should be singly authored by the student. Please acknowledge your PhD advisor(s) and other contributors and supporters (e.g. funding agencies) in the Acknowledgements section.
Submissions should conform to the Interspeech paper style (template here) and should be made in English.

Submissions
Can be made via Easy Chair from the 12th June.
Doctoral Consortium submissions must be submitted in PDF format and submitted to the EasyChair submission system at the above link for review.
Accepted submissions will be published on www.isca-students.org and by submitting an extended abstract, you consent to it being published on the ISCA Student website.
