Meeting Description:

Organized for the first time in Berkeley in 1999, then successively in Edinburgh (2001), Göteborg (2003), Aix-en-Provence (2005), Tokyo (2010), Stockholm (2013), Edinburgh (2015), Stockholm (2017), and Budapest (2019), the Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech (DiSS) workshops gather specialists interested in questions linked with fluency and disfluencies.

What is most often called disfluency – i.e., pauses, hesitations, prolongations, truncations, repetitions, self‑repairs, and similar – in 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 2021 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 2021 will be a two-day international workshop with an additional special day on (Dis)Fluency in Speech and Language Disorders. All accepted papers will be published.
