Meeting Description:

Advancing Prosodic Transcription for Spoken Language Science and Technology
A satellite workshop held in conjunction with LabPhon 13 in Stuttgart, Germany, July 30, 2012

Organizers: Jennifer Cole (U Illinois, USA) and Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel (MIT, USA)

We believe the time is ripe to review the major approaches to prosodic transcription that have been developed over the past few decades, compare their various motivations, strengths and challenges, and consider how to move forward toward a more comprehensive and more universally accepted approach to the prosodic labeling of large corpora. To this end we will be conducting a workshop with invited speakers who include developers of transcription systems as well as researchers who are using these systems in their investigation and/or developing large prosodically labelled corpora.

This workshop is sponsored by the Association for Laboratory Phonology, and ALP members will pay a reduced registration fee. For information on membership, please visit:


Call for Papers:

We invite submissions of one-page abstracts for a poster session at the workshop. The work should address transcription systems or practices, the development of speech databases related to prosody, and/or the use of prosodic transcription in speech research.

Abstract format: 1-page abstract (1 inch margins, single-spaced, and no smaller than 10 pt font) with a second page for figures and references. Submissions should be sent to:


Important Dates:

Abstract due date: Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Decisions announced: April 1, 2012
Date of Workshop: Monday, July 30, 2012
