The app, developed by the Quality and Usability Lab at TU Berlin, Germany, provides users with an up to date technical programme, access to individual abstracts and papers, a personalized schedule which can be exported to a smartphone calendar, search functionality including sessions, papers and attendees. The app is available free of charge and supports Android (from version 4.1) and iOS (from version 7.0). Full paper access is restricted to conference attendees.
Under the auspices of ISCA, Sebastian Möller and his team hope to develop the app into a community platform for use in future Interspeech and other ISCA events. Ultimately, they intend to extend the functionality to test speech technology, i.e. voice search or synthesized speech output.
