 DiSS '01 -- Call for Participation

 Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech, 2001 
 
 http://www.ling.ed.ac.uk/DISS-01
 
 An ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop.
 University of Edinburgh, Scotland. August 29-31, 2001 
 
Following the success of the ICPhS Satellite Meeting "Disfluency in
Spontaneous Speech" in Berkeley in 1999, we are pleased to announce
the sequel, DiSS '01, an ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop, to be
held in Edinburgh, Scotland, from August 29-31, 2001.

Disfluencies - stalls, hesitations and self-repairs - in normal
spontaneous speech present challenges for researchers in many
different fields, ranging from speech production and perception in
psychology, to conversational analysis, to automatic speech
recognition in speech technology. With the availability of large
corpora of spontaneous speech, recent years have seen an increase in
interest in the phenomena within all these fields.

This workshop will allow an opportunity for researchers from diverse
backgrounds to present their research findings, to discuss common
interests, to identify future directions and to establish new research
collaborations.

This will be an international workshop with a limited number of active
participants. Priority for places will be given to authors of accepted papers.

To register interest, please contact: disflling.ed.ac.uk

Deadline for 400-word abstracts: February 2, 2001
