Meeting Description:

The Brazilian Colloquium on Speech Prosody biannual series started with the goal of bringing together a growing community of Brazilian researchers interested in the interdisciplinary field of prosody. Together with the parallel event series Brazilian Prosody School, the Colloquium has been establishing itself as an important venue for presenting original research results to an audience of interdisciplinary researchers. Now, in its fourth edition, the Colloquium will take place in Maceió, located in beautiful northeastern Brazilian coast, in an effort to bring together more established research groups to emergent groups from this area. In this edition, the Colloquium will host, for the first time, a satellite event dedicated to offer 12-hour courses taught by internationally acclaimed researchers in nine areas that have an interface with speech prosody, such as language teaching, forensic science, and emotion research, among others. With this edition, the Organizing Committee hopes to reinforce the Colloquium’s position as the most important event in the field of speech prosody in Brazil and hopes to attract international attention to the research in the field of speech prosody developed in Brazil.
