Meeting Description:

The 12th International Seminar on Speech Production (ISSP2020) will be held in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, from December 14th - 17th, 2020. This conference series was launched in 1988 in Grenoble with the aim of providing an interdisciplinary forum for researchers working on all aspects of speech production, from fields as diverse as phonology, phonetics, prosody, mechanics, acoustics, physiology, motor control, neuroscience, speech technology and human interaction. Each meeting has attracted a substantial portion of the active researchers in this important yet challenging area of speech research. This iteration is sponsored by Haskins Laboratories.

Call for Papers:

Of special interest to students:
We have received a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation to support student participation in the ISSP. Graduate students and recent Ph.D. awardees (past 2 years) are invited to apply for one of 10 fully funded positions to attend the meeting. Support is limited to students enrolled at U.S. institutions, but the student does not need to be a U.S. citizen. Support will cover registration, hotel, meals and travel expenses. Underrepresented minorities and applicants with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. If travel is only possible with an accompanying person, that person's expenses can be covered as well.

Applicants are expected to have submitted an abstract to the conference as first author by the August 1 deadline. To apply, a separate letter detailing student/postdoc status, reasons for wanting to attend the conference, and a supporting letter from a thesis supervisor should be sent to the conference email ( on or before December 31, 2019, specifying ''Student Scholarship'' in the subject line. Decisions will be announced March 1, 2020. Funded by NSF grant BCS-1937973 (Linguistics).

Topics of interest for this meeting include but are not limited to coarticulation, prosody, speech neuroscience, disordered speech, speech in aging populations, speech development, phonetic convergence, articulatory synthesis, acoustic-to-articulatory inversion, speech motor control, biomechanical modeling, instrumental techniques, speech technology, co-speech gesturing, and perturbation-induced plasticity.

A two page abstract will be evaluated. It should use Times New Roman 12 pt font, formatted as a US Letter or A4 size PDF file, inclusive of figures and references.
