Meeting Description:

Beyond Short Units:
Using non segmental units and top-down models in speech recognition in humans
and machines

The event will have a double identity: both a workshop and a doctoral school.
The workshop is planned to be a succession of debates and tutorials held by
invited speakers in which phoneticians and phonologists, psycholinguists and
speech engineers compare their opinions on these themes.
