Subject: Prosody in Processing

Call for Posters: Prosody in Processing
UiL-OTS, Universiteit Utrecht

The Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS at Utrecht University will host an 
international workshop entitled "Prosody in Processing" (PiP) on 5-6 July 
2001. The workshop will bring together researchers interested in issues 
relevant to the role of prosody in the human language faculty.

The workshop will include space for a limited number of posters. The 
organising committee is thus seeking poster abstracts that address topics 
within the workshop theme. These might include, for example, posters that 
treat: potential roles of prosody in language production, language 
understanding or language acquisition; the relationship of prosody to 
syntax or semantics; interaction between prosody and other components of 
language; or the role of prosody within the architecture of the language 

Papers based on the posters presented at the workshop will be eligible for 
inclusion in the workshop proceedings. The workshop will also include 
papers given by invited speakers, in sessions entitled "Prosody and 
modularity," "Prosody and syntax," "Prosody and interpretation," and 
"Prosody and acquisition." The following invited speakers have confirmed 
their contributions: Anne Christophe (Lab de Sci Cognitives et 
Psycholinguistique); Anne Cutler (Max Planck Institute-Nijmegen); Janet 
Dean Fodor (CUNY); Lyn Frazier (UMass-Amherst); Carlos Gussenhoven 
(Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen); Marina Nespor (U di Ferrara); Ardi 
Roelofs (Max Planck Institute-Nijmegen); Lisa Selkirk (UMass-Amherst); 
Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel (MIT); Mark Steedman (U of Edinburgh); Hubert 
Truckenbrodt (MIT/Rutgers); Jocelyn Cohan (UiL-OTS); Herman Hendriks 
(UiL-OTS) and Frank Wijnen (UiL-OTS).
