This year the conference was held in Songdo ConvensiA, in Incheon, Korea, under the theme “Human and Humanizing Speech Technology”.

The conference theme “Human and Humanizing Speech Technology” formulates the vision of the scientific and industrial community to commit endeavors to continue the effort in speech science toward humanizing the spoken language technology, so the impact becomes a game changer that goes beyond the current state-of-the-art and ultimately benefits society as a whole.
