October 21, 2016

New York City from Google NY Offices

SANE 2016, a one-day event gathering researchers and students in speech and audio from the Northeast of the American continent, will be held on Friday October 21, 2016 at MIT, in Cambridge, MA.

It is a follow-up to SANE 2012 (Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs - MERL), SANE 2013 (Columbia University), SANE 2014 (MIT CSAIL), and SANE 2015 (Google NY). Since the first edition, the audience has steadily grown, gathering 140 researchers and students in 2015.

SANE 2016 will feature invited talks by leading researchers from the Northeast, as well as from the international community. It will also feature a lively poster session during lunch time, open to both students and researchers.

Confirmed Speakers

Poster Session (Submission deadline: 09/30)

If you would like to present a poster, please send an email to with a brief abstract describing what you plan to present. Poster submission deadline is September 30. Note that SANE is not a peer-reviewed workshop, and you can present work that has been or will be submitted elsewhere (if the other venue does not explicitly forbids it). As SANE participants will be a mix of audio signal processing, speech, and machine learning researchers, the poster session will be a great opportunity to foster discussion as well as get feedback and comments from various perspectives on your most recent work.


Registration is free but required. We will only be able to accommodate a limited number of participants, so we encourage those interested in attending this event to register as soon as possible by sending an email to with your name and affiliation.


The workshop will be hosted by MIT's Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department, at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, in Cambridge, MA.
