DiSS'07 is the 5th in the series of successful interdisciplinary workshops on
disfluency in spontaneous speech. The next workshop will be held in Edinburgh,
Scotland from 2-4 August, 2007.
Final Call for Papers -- Deadline Extended!
Disfluencies - errors, self-repairs and hesitations in speech - present
challenges for researchers in many different fields, including phonetics,
perception and production in psycholinguistics, discourse analysis,
computational linguistics and automatic speech recognition.
This workshop allows researchers from diverse backgrounds to present their
research findings, discuss common interests, identify future directions and
establish new collaborations.
We invite submission of 4 page papers for review. The submission deadline has
been extended to March 23 2007. Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
- Descriptive studies of error, self-repair and hesitation
- Cognitive models of error, self-monitoring and self-repair
- Experimental work on perception, comprehension, and production of speech
- Computational approaches to processing disfluent speech
- Automatic speech recognition with spontaneous speech
- Theoretical approaches to disfluency in speech and communication disorders.
The required format for paper submission and workshop details are available on
the DiSS'07 website: http://www.disfluency.org.

The publication of Noam Chomsky's 'Syntactic Structures' in 1957 was the
beginning of the 'generative revolution' in linguistics. It introduced into
linguistics the rigor and formalization of the burgeoning field of symbolic
logic. It was a major contribution to the cognitive revolution. It led to the
establishment of formal language theory in theoretical computer science.
This year's Mathematics of Language conference commemorates the 50th anniversary
of the publication of 'Syntactic Structures' with a special session.
