Meeting Description:

DINAFON (Speech Dynamics) is a Brazilian interinstitutional research group directed by Brazilian phonetician Eleonora Albano, from the State University of Campinas, in close collaboration with Belgian phonetician Didier Demolin, from Université Stendhal, Grenoble.

The group's research interests revolve around phenomena of speech perception, production and processing as they unfold in the time domain.

This is the 1st International DINAFON Meeting, and the 6th National Edition of the Annual Open DINAFON Meeting. It will be held at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) from August 18 to August 21.

DINAFON 2014 is a sequel to SPSASSD, São Paulo School of Advanced Studies in Speech Dynamics, held in São Paulo in June 2010. Most of the invited speakers in this DINAFON edition were members of the SPSASSD faculty. This new round of discussions will focus on dynamical relationships between speech perception and production.
