SANE 2017 - Speech and Audio in the Northeast

October 19, 2017

New York City from Google NY Offices

SANE 2017, 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 19, 2017 at Google, in New York, NY.

It is a follow-up to SANE 2012, held at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL), SANE 2013, held at Columbia University, SANE 2014, held at MIT CSAIL, SANE 2015, (already!) held at Google NY, and SANE 2016, held at MIT's McGovern Institute for Brain Research. Since the first edition, the audience has steadily grown, gathering over 100 researchers and students in recent editions.

As in 2013 and 2015, this year's SANE will be held in conjunction with the WASPAA workshop, held October 16-19 in upstate New York. WASPAA attendees are welcome and encouraged to attend SANE.

SANE 2017 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 19, 2017
  • Venue: Google, New York City, NY


    Stay tuned.

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 RIGHT of the apparel shop and the Google logo on this Street View shot.
