INTERSPEECH has grown into the world's largest technical conference focused on speech processing and application with over 1800 attendees and over 1000 papers. The conferences emphasize interdisciplinary approaches addressing all aspects of speech science and technology, ranging from basic theories to advanced applications.
It is widely believed that technologies are not the only factors that restrict the development of speech processing. The emotions and the cognitive abilities are also playing a vital role in friendly and harmonious man-machine speech communication and human-oriented intelligence technologies. INTERSPEECH 2020 was therefore organized around the topic "Cognitive Intelligence for Speech Processing".
INTERSPEECH 2020 was a fully virtual conference staged in Shanghai from October 25-29, 2020.
