Institute of Linguistics, Adam Mickiewicz University
The conference, organized to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Polish
Phonetic Association (PTFon), is of interest to several scientific communities,
including Human Language and Speech Technology, Linguistics, Phonetics,
Phoniatrics and Musicology. Its scientific program covers a wide variety of
topics related to the contemporary applications of phonetics. While the meeting
will be focused mainly on the fields of speech analysis, processing, synthesis
and recognition, contributions from many other areas of speech and language
studies are warmly invited. We intend to create an open forum for speech
communication science thought exchange to take the advantage of the variety of
research perspectives and approaches.
The Call for Papers is addressed to researchers engaged in either academic or
industrial research. In order to support the multi-disciplinary goal of the
conference, the Scientific and Organizing Committees include representatives of
various scientific communities.
The scientific program will include invited talks, presentations of accepted
papers in oral and poster sessions, referenced demonstrations of innovative
applications and products, and panel sessions. The mode of presentation (oral
versus poster) will be based on the appropriateness of the paper to that mode of
- Main scientific areas: applications of phonetics in speech synthesis and
recognition; prosody in speech synthesis, recognition and analysis;
- pitch perception in music and speech
- corpus-based methods in speech synthesis and recognition;
- natural and synthetic expressive speech;
- voice quality in natural and synthetic speech;
- evaluation of speech synthesis and recognition systems;
- applications of phonetics in audiology and phoniatrics: speech signal analysis
based medical diagnostics;
- pragmaphonetics in discourse and dialogue analysis;
- text and speech machine processing and translation.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Authors are invited to submit papers on the conference topics. The papers will
be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, and selected on the basis of their
scientific quality, innovative content and relevance to the topic of the conference.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS/PRODUCT DEMONSTRATIONS
Innovative applications and products related to the conference topics are sought
for demonstration at special conference sessions. The applications will be given
free demonstration space.
Please note that every person who intend to participate in the conference
(including those who don't submit papers/demonstration) is asked to send a
separate submission form. This also applies to the situation when two or more
authors of a given paper intend to come to the conference: They should send
separate forms. We plan to offer on-line registration, but it will be possible
The preferable form of submissions is e-mail (wagneramu.edu.pl). Nevertheless,
we still accept snail-mails submmissions. Please send us your paper in an RTF

should be prepared according to the instructions that will be shortly available
from our web page. The papers should be no longer than eight pages, including a
short (approx. 100 word) abstract and the list of literature. Please avoid small
and complex graphs that may be hardly readable in print. The size and format of
invited papers will be discussed directly with invited speakers. Please do not
place any personal/affiliation data on your paper. This is to make anonymous
reviewing easier. Later on, authors will be identified on the basis of papers'
Electronic submissions will be acknowledged within 48 hours. If they are not
acknowledged, please check the e-mail address and resubmit. Submission of a
proposal implies a commitment to present the paper or the demonstration at the
conference, if accepted.
Conference proceedings CDs will be available to the participants at the
registration as a part of the conference package. Selected papers will be
published in Journal of Speech Technology or Phonetica (depending on the topic).

The conference will take place in Cracow. Cracow was the capital of the country
until the 17th century. Wawel Hill, is also called ''the Polish Acropolis''. The
cathedral dominating this spot used to be the place where the coronation of
Polish kings was held; it was also their burial place. The nearby Renaissance
castle was resided in by kings of the Piast and Jagiellon dynasties, and a
member of the Vasas, who when moving out, ''took'' the capital to Warsaw with
him. As centuries went by, Wawel Cathedral became the burial place of national
heroes. It gained the status of a national sanctuary and became a symbol of the
nation's spiritual identity and durability.
You'll find more information about the venue on the Conference Web Page.
