8th Doctoral Consortium @ Interspeech 2022
Date: September 17th, 2022
Location: Incheon, South Korea
Panel of Experts: TBA
ISCA’s Student Advisory Committee is pleased to announce its 8th Doctoral Consortium at INTERSPEECH 2022. The event gives doctoral students the opportunity to get feedback on their ongoing dissertation project from a panel of experts.
The Consortium is an event for doctoral students at any stage of their dissertation. Each participant will have 30 minutes to present and discuss their work-in-progress. Discussions are led by the panel of experts and focus on helping each participant refine their research plan and identify the next steps in their project. All doctoral students in speech-related fields are invited to submit a two-page abstract outlining their dissertation project by 15 June 2022.
The 8th Doctoral Consortium at INTERSPEECH 2022 is planned as an in-person event. We reserve the option to revert back to a virtual format.
Abstracts should describe the dissertation project as a whole: what you have done so far, what you plan to do, and what challenges you see. The abstract may incorporate in-progress and published work, but should address the following points:

We will have a panel discussion with experts from academia and industry in a hybrid format.
We encourage you to submit questions before the event. A selection of the submitted questions will be answered from the panel of experts. Please keep in mind that the experts and the audience are coming from different fields, so field specific and technical questions are less likely to be presented to the panel.

Mentoring Events at Interspeech 2022
An initiative of ISCA’s Mentoring Committee and ISCA-SAC
Date and Time: Tuesday, September 20th, from 12h to 13h30 KST (Korean time)
Location: In-person, and online.
After three successful editions of the mentoring event, at Interspeech 2019 in Graz, Interspeech 2020 in Shanghai (online), and Interspeech 2021 in Brno (online), ISCA’s new Mentoring Committee is joining forces with the Student Advisory Committee, ISCA-SAC to organise mentoring events for the fourth time, at Interspeech 2022 in Incheon.
Similarly to what happened last year, we will hold two events: round tables and one-on-one mentoring. We invite all researchers in any stage of their career to participate. Participants will be given the opportunity to engage in group and one-to-one discussions with mid-career and senior researchers from academia and industry in a friendly, welcoming environment.
Round table discussions
To cater for different needs and wishes, we will have separate round tables – tables for PhD students only and tables for a mix of people at different career stages. Each table will have an assigned topic, two mentors, a mediator and 6-8 participants. Mentors will be confirmed nearer the time.
Potential topics for discussion, subject to demand, are listed below.
If you would feel more comfortable discussing certain topics in a one-on-one session, you can also register for it, and we will do our best to find a mentor matching your needs. We will then introduce mentor and participant pairs, and let you arrange the best time/place for your conversation.
