The INTERSPEECH 2013 Computational Paralinguistics Challenge provides for the first time a unified test-bed for Social Signals such as laughter in speech. It further introduces conflict in group discussions as new tasks and picks up on autism and its manifestations in speech. Finally, emotion is revisited as task, albeit with a broader ranger of overall twelve emotional states. In this paper, we describe these four Sub-Challenges, Challenge conditions, baselines, and a new feature set by the openSMILE toolkit, provided to the participants. \em Bj\"orn Schuller$^1$, Stefan Steidl$^2$, Anton Batliner$^1$, Alessandro Vinciarelli$^{3,4}$, Klaus Scherer$^5$}\\ {\em Fabien Ringeval$^6$, Mohamed Chetouani$^7$, Felix Weninger$^1$, Florian Eyben$^1$, Erik Marchi$^1$, }\\ {\em Hugues Salamin$^3$, Anna Polychroniou$^3$, Fabio Valente$^4$, Samuel Kim$^4$}
