The São Paulo School of Advanced Studies in Speech Dynamics (SPSASSD) is a five-day event designed to foster speech research in Brazil by promoting dialogue between international and national experts and offering opportunities to talented students from all over the world. It is sponsored by Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP), the São Paulo State research funding agency: http://www.fapesp.br/en/.
Eligible participants are: undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students in any scientific area concerned with speech, from any academic institution in Brazil; or graduate or post-doctoral students in the same areas from any academic institution in any country having diplomatic relations with Brazil.
SPSASSD is aimed at attracting interest of promising young researchers in contributing to the growth of speech science in Brazil. Over 200 languages, immigrant and indigenous, are spoken throughout the country. Approaching them with the tools of frontier speech science can open countless new horizons. Students who would consider pursuing an academic career in the field in the state of São Paulo are encouraged to apply for a FAPESP scholarship for attendance. For opportunities, see: http://www.fapesp.br/en/materia/5421/news/post-doctoral-and-young-investigator-awards-in-sao-paulo-brazil.htm FAPESP will cover selected candidates' travel and living expenses. 30 scholarships covering travel and living expenses will be offered to students coming from outside Brazil! Beneficiaries of FAPESP scholarships/fellowships may apply for participation, but are not eligible for funding, as they must use 'reserva técnica'.
Training in theory and method for the study of speech dynamics will be offered through 7 mini-courses, 5 lectures and 3 round-tables. The faculty consists of experts in the field working in the USA, Europe, and Brazil. All sessions will be plenary.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
