Subject: Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech

Call for Participation

The increasing interest in spontaneous speech in the academic and
technological communities has led to several new research initiatives
which focus on disfluency in normal spontaneous speech. In this
workshop we will attempt to bring together researchers working on the
topic from various angles.

The main purposes of the meeting will be to allow an overview of
recent and current research, to examine problems and issues in this
research and to discuss future areas of interest. Abstracts are
invited from a wide area, including description, speech production and
psycholinguistic and computational approaches to the understanding of
disfluent speech.

The meeting will allow as much discussion as possible, structured
around a selection of themes, and supported by a limited number of
oral presentations. Poster presentations are also encouraged .

Organisers: Robin Lickley, Ellen Gurman Bard (University of Edinburgh),
Jean Fox Tree (UCSC), Peter Heeman (OGI), Liz Shriberg (SRI).
