Chairman's Message 
 
The First International Conference on Speech Prosody (Speech Prosody
2002, chaired by Daniel Hirst at the University of Aix) was held in
April 2002 in Aix-en-Provence, France. Because of its great success,
many researchers working on speech prosody have been earnestly looking
forward to holding this academic forum on a biennial basis in the
future. Our Japanese colleagues are now ready to organize the second
international conference on speech prosody (Speech Prosody 2004,
chaired by Professor Keikichi Hirose from University of Tokyo) in
Nara, an ancient capital of Japan, during March 23-26, 2004. As a
satellite meeting of Speech Prosody 2004, the International Symposium
on Tonal Aspect of Languages: Emphasis on Tone Languages (Tonal
Symposium China 2004) will be held during March 28-30, 2004 in
Beijing, China by The Institute of Linguistics, Chinese Academy of
Social Sciences (CASS). Tonal Symposium China 2004 is also an
important part of the celebration of the 95th Birthday of Professor
Zongji Wu, Emeritus Member of the Permanent Council of International
Congress of Phonetic Science. A famous pioneer of phonetic research in
China, Professor Wu had served as leader of the Group of Phonetic
Experiment of the Institute of Linguistics, CAS since its
establishment in 1956 and is still leader of the current Phonetic
Laboratory (established in 1978) of The Institute of Linguistics,
CASS. Under his leadership, this research team had gradually turned
into a major research force on the study of Chinese phonetics. Due to
the complexity in the relation between intonation and tone in tone
languages, the study of the issues of speech prosody in tonal language
is of intriguing idiosyncrasy and difficulty, which has drawn
attention from the international research community of phonetics. This
symposium aims to bring together the scholars working in this field
from both at home and abroad to present their work, exchange their
experience and discuss issues of interest, so that the first one or
two decades of the 21st century will see a great progress in the
research of speech prosody to better fit the demands of the
fast-growing phonetic science and speech engineering. Scientific
areas 1. Production of Tone and Intonation 2. Perception of Tone and
Intonation 3. Tone, Rhythm and Tempo 4. Tone, Stress and Prominence
5. Syntactic, Semantic and Pragmatic Aspects of Tone and Intonation
6. Phonology of Tone and Intonation 7. Attitudinal and Emotional
Aspects of Tone and Intonation 8. Tone, Intonation and Technology
9. Acquisition of Tone and Intonation 10. Others

Meeting Description:

Sorti des limites du syst�me syntaxique on entre dans le texte dont le
dispositif ob�it � des principes organisationnels qui n'ont rien �
voir avec la syntaxe. Il est alors l�gitime de se demander comment on
passe d'empans courts (dont la phrase est l'exemple le plus
repr�sentatif) � des empans plus larges, et quels processus cognitifs
sont mis en l'uvre lors de ces diff�rents passages, quelles marques
linguistiques codent les relations de coh�rence.

Beyond the phrasal system we enter the textual system, the
organisational principles of which have nothing to do with syntax. One
can then legitimately wonder how one goes from short spans (the
sentence being the most representative example) to wider spans, and
what cognitive processes come into play during such transitions, what
linguistic markers code the coherence relations. Dernier appel �

Appel � contribution

Au quotidien, on ne peut �viter les textes. Nous les c�toyons
r�guli�rement et ils jouent un r�le pr�pond�rant � diff�rents niveaux
: tout un chacun produit des textes, les comprends/d�chiffre et les
per�oit par mode daffichage ou par voie orale.

Le texte peut �tre consid�r� comme une unit� globale de production
verbale (�crite ou orale) dont l�mergence est tributaire dactivit�s
mentales, et qui v�hicule une information organis�e en vue dun
destinataire. En tant quoccurrence communicative, le texte pr�sente un
ensemble de phrases unies par un r�seau de relations que nous sommes
susceptibles dinterpr�ter, de comprendre, de produire : ceci est li� �
la capacit� de chacun � distinguer ce qui est coh�rent de ce qui ne
lest pas. En effet, si des relations existent entre les phrases
successives (coh�rence locale), dautres interviennent entre
diff�rentes parties du texte (coh�rence globale). Et cest linteraction
entre ces deux types de relation qui permet dacc�der au sens du texte,
de m�me que cest la capacit� � mettre en 'uvre des proc�dures
engendrant de telles relations qui est � lorigine de la production
textuelle et de son efficacit� communicative.

On admet, quelle que soit la th�orie syntaxique � laquelle on adh�re,
que des contraintes rectionnelles et positionnelles p�sent sur la
phrase, en nombre fini. Or, sorti des limites de ce syst�me on entre
dans le texte dont le dispositif ob�it � des principes
organisationnels qui nont rien � voir avec la syntaxe. Il est alors
l�gitime de se demander comment on passe dempans courts (dont la
phrase est lexemple le plus repr�sentatif) � des empans plus larges,
et quels processus cognitifs sont mis en 'uvre lors de ces diff�rents
passages, quelles marques linguistiques codent les relations de
coh�rence. Cest lobjectif de ce colloque qui voudrait croiser des
regards interdisciplinaires sur le texte pour l�clairer tant en
interpr�tation/compr�hension quen production.

Lorientation prise par ce colloque est donc de croiser les points de
vue et de confronter comment la linguistique, la psycholinguistique
mais aussi le Traitement Automatique des Langues Naturelles qui
utilise les r�sultats danalyses linguistiques, se situent par rapport
au texte et lexpliquent.

- soumettre des travaux ayant pour objet le texte et qui nauront pas

Call for papers

On an everyday basis it is impossible to escape texts. We deal with
them regularly and they play an important role at different levels:
everybody produce texts, understand/decode and appreciate them either
posted or verbally.

One can consider that the text is a global unit of verbal production
(written or spoken), the emergence of which is based on mental
activities. Such a production also conveys organized information aimed
at an addressee. As a communicative occurrence, the text is a set of
sentences linked by a network of relations we are liable to interpret,
to understand and to produce: this is linked to everybodys capacity to
distinguish between what is coherent and what is not. Indeed, if there
exist relations between adjacent sentences (local coherence), they
also intervene between other parts of the text (global coherence). It
is this particular interaction between two types of relation that
makes it possible to access the meaning of the text. Likewise it is
our ability to set on procedures creating such relations that prompts
textual production and assures its communicative efficiency.

Whatever the syntactic theory considered, a finished set of relational
and positional constraints weigh on the sentence. And yet, beyond the
phrasal system we enter the textual system, the organisational
principles of which have nothing to do with syntax. One can then
legitimately wonder how one goes from short spans (the sentence being
the most representative example) to wider spans, and what cognitive
processes come into play during such transitions, what linguistic
markers code the coherence relations. Such is the aim of this
conference with a view to conjoining interdisciplinary perspectives
about the text regarding its interpretation/comprehension and
production.

The direction of this conference is then to conjunct points of view
and to compare how linguistics, psycholinguistics but also Natural
Language Automatic Treatment that uses the outcomes of linguistic
analyses, consider the text and deal with it.

We invite authors to:

- submit abstracts taking into consideration the topics of the
conference;

- submit research that will have the text as object and will not have
been published;

- envisage the text from perspectives that can be diverse and possibly
conjoint;

- present robust methodological tools, hypotheses, opening
perspectives and present results.

Languages of the conference: French and English
