This workshop serves as the main event of the ISCA Special Interest Group on "The History of Speech Communication Sciences" that is also backed by the International Phonetic Association (IPA). The workshop will be a unique exchange forum for researchers with work on all kind of historical aspects of the research fields represented at the Interspeech conferences and the Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS). Topics may include work on pioneering (and possibly forgotten or ignored) important publications, the description of historical audio and video recordings, collections of historical instruments as well as the usage of speech technology in spoken document retrieval.
HSCR 2015 is a satellite event of the Interspeech 2015, Dresden, September 6-10, Dresden, Germany.
