Meeting Description:

Multiple factors influence the production and perception of language; this
can be easily observed, for instance, in speaking or sign language. An
important role is played by communicative context: the availability of
different types of information, both in quantitative and qualitative terms, a
more or less controlled context, the speaker/listener's perception of the
communicative situation in which they act and an objective change in the
communicative situation are some major causes of variation in language
use, with clear effects on the production and perception of the message.

Communicative context determines many linguistic features, such as the
degree of coarticulation between language units or rhythm and melody.
Therefore this year's conference will focus on the relationship between
variability and communicative context as it may be observed in spoken
natural language, sign language or in speech production and recognition
software applications.

Presentations dealing with topics directly related to the conference theme or
to voice sciences in general are particularly welcome. There will also be a
session for non-thematic papers. A special session will be reserved to
graduate, PhD students, and junior researchers whose proposals are
warmly encouraged.

Call For Papers
