The VALORIA Lab at l'Université de Bretagne-Sud, Vannes, France is proud to host the Signed Language Phonology Workshop, Vannes, France, July 6-8, 2011
One half day will be devoted to the Mini-workshop on ‘Phonetic Annotation Templates for Technology: Challenges Encountered and Novel Solutions’.
We invite researchers interested in the phonetics and phonology of signed languages to come discuss current trends in the areas of notation and analysis.
Registration is free.
Call for Papers:
We are looking for 3-4 presentations of 20-30 minutes that discuss the use of technology for the phonologist/phoneticist. They will serve as discussion topics for the group, and should respond to these and similar questions:
- How have you designed your annotation template for ELAN, Anvil, or similar software to fit best with your needs for phonological annotation and analysis?
- How do software functions/features facilitate your phonetic annotation or analysis?
- And to a lesser extent, what additions or modifications would you like to see to technology to aid your annotation or analysis?
Submissions can be made at the workshop website, http://www-valoria.univ-ubs.fr/signcom/SLPW/ by June 3, 2011.
This workshop will be conducted in English and either American Sign
Language (ASL) or International Sign (IS). Deaf participants should
indicate their preference for interpretation when registering for the workshop.
Abstract submission deadline: June 3, 2011
Registration deadline: June 17, 2011

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

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
