Call For Tutorials

Following Odyssey 2020, Odyssey 2022 will also feature a tutorial day on June 27th, 2022, before the Odyssey 2022 workshop. With this, we aim to further enhance Odyssey 2022 as an ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop (ITRW). The tutorial day features short lectures focusing on recent advances in speech technology.

Speakers with long and deep expertise in speech will provide their audience with a rich learning experience and an exposure to longstanding research problems, contemporary topics of research as well as emerging areas.

We encourage proposals for addressing introductory or advanced topics in an introductory style as well as for targeting experienced researchers who want to dig deeper into a given new topic. Tutorials, each 2-hour duration, may introduce an emerging area of speech-related research, or present an overview of an established area of research, rather than focus on the presenter’s individual research.

Proposals should include (in this order)

· Tutorial Title

· Presenter(s) name and affiliation

· Contact Information (Email, Telephone)

· 3 - 4 sentence abstract summarizing the proposed tutorial that could be used as an advertisement

· Description of the proposal (1 page description, a few relevant references, any webpages/material useful for reviewing the proposal)

· Explanation of relevance of the proposed tutorial (0.5 - 1 page)
