The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers that are interested in the history of speech communication research. A special focus of the workshop will lie on the interdisciplinary nature of speech communication research (SCR), especially on the relation between science and technology that can be exemplified through the history of SCR. We are also interested in methods of speech communication research (SCR) from the 20th century, which are no longer the state-of-the-art but of historic relevance.

Interesting questions in this field are:

  • How can knowledge transfers between science and technology be exemplified by the history of speech communication research?
  • What is the relation between SCR and artistic practices?
  • How was speech communication research influenced by the medical sciences?

The workshop is a satellite event of the INTERSPEECH 2019 conference in Graz, Austria

The past HSCR workshops were held in 2015 in Dresden and 2017 in Helsinki.
