Meeting Description:

The third conference on Experimental and Theoretical Advances in Prosody (ETAP) is taking place this coming May 28-30, 2015, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A special focus of this year’s ETAP is prosodic variability. Prosodic processing presents a challenge to researchers because of the many sources of variability in how prosodic phenomena area realized. Prosodic information consists of bundles of features (e.g., pitch, duration, loudness, intensity), but patterns of these features vary systematically across different speakers, populations, dialects, and contexts. They also vary randomly due to speech errors or noise in the environment. A long-standing, critical issue in the field is understanding the nature of such variability in prosodic information as well as understanding how listeners maintain their prosodic representations despite the variable input. This conference aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplines who work on these issues, as well as researchers working on general questions in prosody research. We will post Call for Papers on our website in October 2014.

Call for Papers:

We originally announced that abstracts would be due in December 2014. However, due to overlapping conference deadlines, we decided to extend our final submission deadline until January 11, 2015. Existing submissions can also be updated until this final deadline. Please visit our website and follow submission instructions.


Abstract for both posters and presentations must be submitted in a pdf format and must not exceed 500 words. Fifteen lines, which are not included in the word count, may be used to present examples and references. Abstract must be submitted at the ETAP3 EasyChair submission site. The uploaded abstract should be anonymous.
