Meeting Description:

Speech and Corpora
in memory of Claire Blanche-Benveniste

February 29 – March 02, 2012
Faculdade de Letras, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil

GSCP (The Special Interest Group on Spoken Communication - Gruppo di Studio sulla Comunicazione Parlata) has been one of the main European forums for the discussion of the interdisciplinary area related to the study of spoken communication in all its aspects ever since its inception in Naples (Italy) in 2003. The GSCP conference is a rich opportunity for the advancement of scholarship not only in linguistic studies related to spoken language but also to interfacing disciplines, including new technologies.

GSCP 2012 has as its main theme the relationship between speech and corpora studies and welcomes submissions about spoken corpora, their methodologies, data collection, objectives, validation techniques, besides linguistic analyses based on speech corpora.
