SANE 2015 - Speech and Audio in the Northeast

October 22, 2015

New York City from Google NY Offices

SANE 2015, a one-day event gathering researchers and students in speech and audio from the Northeast of the American continent, will be held on Thursday October 22, 2015 at Google, in New York City, NY.

It is a follow-up to SANE 2012, held at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL), SANE 2013, held at Columbia University, and SANE 2014, held at MIT, which each gathered 70 to 90 researchers and students.

As in 2013, this year's SANE will take place in conjunction with the WASPAA workshop, held October 18-21 in upstate New York. WASPAA attendees are welcome and encouraged to attend SANE.

SANE 2015 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.


  • Date: Thursday, October 22, 2015
  • Venue: Google, New York City, NY


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 at Google, in New York City, NY. Google NY is located at 111 8th Ave, and the closest subway stop is the A, C, and E lines' 14 St station. The entrance is the one to the left of the apparel shop and the Google logo on this Street View shot.
