Meeting Description: International Symposium on Prosody to Commemorate Gösta Bruce

The department of linguistics and phonetics, Lund University, will honor the late Gösta Bruce (1947-2010) with a commemorative symposium on June 2-3, 2014.

As professor of phonetics, Gösta Bruce played an internationally very fundamental and influential role in the development of methods and models for current prosody research. The ideas in his seminal doctoral dissertation from 1977, Swedish Word Accents in Sentence Perspective, served as the point of departure for the development of prosody models for tone and intonation systems in many different languages.

Invited speakers at the symposium include:

San Duanmu, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Caroline Féry, Goethe-University, Frankfurt
Nina Grønnum, University of Copenhagen
Carlos Gussenhoven, Radboud University, Nijmegen
Julia Hirschberg, Columbia University, New York
D. Robert Ladd, University of Edinburgh
Tomas Riad, Stockholm University

In addition to marking Gösta Bruce's importance for research in prosody, the symposium will function as a forum for discussions on current challenging research questions within prosody research.

Participation is free of charge, but registration via the conference home page is necessary.
