SANE 2018, 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 18, 2018 at Google, in Cambridge, MA.

It is the 7th edition in the SANE series of workshops, which started in 2012. Since the first edition, the audience has steadily grown, with a record 180 participants in 2017.

SANE 2018 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, open to both students and researchers.


  • Date: Thursday, October 18, 2018
  • Venue: Google, Cambridge, MA


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 Cambridge, MA. Google Cambridge is located at 355 Main St, right next to the Kendall/MIT station on the T Red Line.
