Admission conditions:

Grants for participation in INTERSPEECH 2013 will be administered by the ISCA Board and
awarded according to the available budget to applicants who fulfil the requirements stated below.

  • Letter of acceptance of a paper to be presented
  • Mentioning of other funding being requested, awarded or rejected by other sources
  • No previous grants from ISCA
  • Preference to applicants from areas needing greater support

The aim of these grants is to ensure a broad representation of the scientific topics of the conference
and a cross-section of the international speech community as wide as possible. Researchers who are unemployed
or coming from low income-level countries are also encouraged to apply. Applicants from all countries are eligible.


Applicants can fill the relevant form and provide complementary documents:

 - a Curriculum Vitae with academic records
 - a complete list of previous publications (title, year, co-authors, journal/book/proceedings, pages)
 - a copy of the original manuscript(s) accepted to the conference
 - a recommendation letter from the applicant's supervisor
 - a list of the conferences, workshops already attended by the applicant

An on-line application form is available here.
As the period for application will be very short, we encourage students interested by this source of support
to start preparing some of the required documents.


  • Grant application will start after the paper acceptance notification: May 24th, 2013
  • Grant application deadline: May 29th, 2013
  • Notification of grant acceptance: June 4th, 2013
