Conference Theme

Multiple factors influence the production and perception of language; this can be easily observed, for instance, in speaking or sign language. An important role is played by communicative context: the availability of different types of information, both in quantitative and qualitative terms, a more or less controlled context, the speaker/listener’s perception of the communicative situation in which they act and an objective change in the communicative situation are some major causes of variation in language use, with clear effects on the production and perception of the message. Communicative context determines many linguistic features, such as the degree of coarticulation between language units or rhythm and melody. Therefore this year’s conference will focus on the relationship between variability and communicative context as it may be observed in spoken natural language, sign language or in speech production and recognition software applications. Presentations dealing with topics directly related to the conference theme or to voice sciences in general are particularly welcome. There will also be a session for non-thematic papers. A special session will be reserved to graduate, PhD students, and junior researchers whose proposals are warmly encouraged.
