Submission instructions

Regular Papers must be written in English and submitted using the on-line submission system. Papers must be formatted following the IberSpeech2020 author kit  and uploaded in PDF format. Maximum paper length is 4 pages plus one additional page for references. For the special sessions ‘Project’ and ‘Demos’ there is no minimum length requirement.

Upon acceptance, at least one author will be required to register and present the paper at the conference. In the case of the Ph.D. Thesis award, it is planned that authors can participate remotely and, in this case, registration is not required.

All the papers in the conference will be accessible through the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA) Online Archive. Also,  we have already agreed with MDPI to handle a Special Issue from the IberSPEECH2020 conference at Applied Sciences (
