Subject: ISCA Workshop on Temporal Integration in the Perception of Speech (TIPS)


ISCA International Tutorial and Research Workshop

Aix-en-Provence, France, 8-10 April 2002


The complete programme of the oral sessions is now available on the
TIPS Web site, along with a list of the accepted poster papers. A
registration form can be found at

TIPS is held in conjunction with Speech Prosody 2002 (11-13 April 2002).


The workshop will aim to get researchers from different fields
discussing their views on current issues in speech perception. The
workshop's unifying focus is temporal integration of different types
of sensory information in the perception and understanding of
speech. Central questions concern the dynamics of speech perception,
especially how the listener combines short-domain and long-domain
acoustic cues to a phonemic distinction, and the nature of the
perceptual "glue" that allows different chunks of acoustic information
to hold together as the speech signal is processed.

The workshop will comprise five oral sessions:

. Phonetic and phonological issues
. Development
. Computational modelling
. Cognitive and neural bases
. Pathology

In addition, there will be three poster sessions for contributed


Peter Jusczyk had kindly agreed to give an invited paper. A tribute
will be paid to him during the workshop.


The workshop is organized by No�l Nguyen (Univ. Provence, France),
Sarah Hawkins (Univ. Cambridge, UK), and John Laver (Queen Margaret
Univ. College, Edinburgh, UK).
