InterSpeech 2017 update

InterSpeech 2017 has reached an all-time high number of participants. InterSpeech has now more than 1850 conference attendants, including 1650 regular registrations. The organization committee is very proud of the wide interest for InterSpeech 2017 in Stockholm and is happy to announce the results of our effort to give all participants the best possible experience of InterSpeech 2017. We will take good care of you and here are the solutions we implemented:

  1. The opening ceremony in Aula Magna will be streamed to two overflow lecture halls in Södra Huset.
  2. The plenary sessions in Aula Magna will also be streamed to an additional lecture hall providing a two-way communication between the participants in the overflow hall and those in Aula Magna.
  3. In addition to the Reception hosted by Stockholm City at the City Hall on Monday, August 21, Interspeech 2017 organized an additional reception at Teaterbaren (, in central Stockholm. Security rules impose an absolute maximum of 1200 guest in the City Hall. Stockholm City issues 1200 reception tickets that will be distributed to InterSpeech participants upon registration and must be presented at the City Hall entrance. Individual e-mails will be sent to all participants who signed up for the reception, explaining if you are allocated to the City Hall reception or to the reception at the Teaterbaren. Since entrance in the City Hall is strictly regulated, it is appreciated if you trade your ticket with someone else (or return it to the InterSpeech staff) in case you decide not to attend the City Hall reception.
  4. The Interspeech banquet on Wednesday will be served in both the Technology Museum and in the adjacent Ethnographic Museum. Bus transfer will be provided from Stockholm University to these museums (face-to-face, same address). To allow for a smooth first serving, participants will receive an e-mail indicating if they will be served at the Technology or the Ethnographic Museum. Switching between the museums will be possible after the meals are served, provided there is enough available room.

Please note that due to the large number of registered participants, some of the conference materials may not be available to late registrants.


We look forward to welcome you in Stockholm!
