ISCA, together with the Interspeech 2007 organizing committee, would

International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), after Beijing,
Aalborg, Denver, Geneva, Jeju, Lisbon and Pittsburgh.

The conference will be held August 27-31 in Antwerp, Belgium.

The main conference (August 28-31) will take place in the Flanders
Congress and Concert Centre(FCCC) and the adjacent Astrid Park Plaza
Hotel.  The FCCC is one of the historic conference centres of Europe;
it connects to the Antwerp zoo and is located right in the city
centre.  Antwerp is a lively midsize town with a well preserved
medieval center, keeping conference centre and most hotels and social
event venues within comfortable walking distance.  Antwerp was the
home town of the famous painter Rubens and is today well known as an
international centre of diamonds. It also hosts one of the largest
harbors in the world.

The Technical Program will include in parallel 3 oral, 3 poster and 1
special session, totaling 745 papers, selected from 1268 submitted
