Meeting Description:

Following the successes of the Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech workshop in
Berkeley (1999) and the DiSS workshops in Edinburgh (2001), Göteborg (2003),
Aix-en-Provence (2005) and Tokyo (2010), Stockholm (2013), Edinburgh (2015),
Stockholm (2017), we are proud to present DiSS 2019, to be held at the ELTE
Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary, in September 2019.

What is most often called disfluency – i.e. pauses, hesitations,
prolongations, truncations, repetitions, self repairs and similar – in normal
spontaneous speech presents challenges for researchers in many different
fields, ranging from speech production and perception in psychology, to
conversational analysis and automatic speech recognition in speech technology.

DiSS 2019 will allow an opportunity for researchers from diverse backgrounds
to present their research findings, to discuss common interests, to identify
future directions and to establish new research collaborations. DiSS 2019 will
be an international workshop with a special day on (Dis)Fluency in Children’s
Speech. All accepted papers will be published.
