ISCA International Tutorial and Research Workshop

Aix-en-Provence, France, 8-10 April 2002



The workshop will aim to get researchers from different fields
discussing their views on current issues in speech perception. The
workshop's unifying focus is temporal integration in the perception of
speech. It is well established that many cues associated with
distinctive features are confined to short stretches of
speech. However, in addition to these short-time acoustic landmarks,
long-domain phonetic dependencies can play a significant role in the
recognition of words. The short-domain vs. long-domain distinction is
challenging for current models of speech perception and lexical
access, and raises crucial issues about how auditory representations
are mapped onto lexical representations, as well as about the nature
of these representations. Central questions include: how does the
listener combine short-domain and long-domain acoustic cues to a
phonemic distinction, and what is the nature of the perceptual "glue"
that allows different chunks of acoustic information to hold together?

The workshop will comprise five oral sessions, one each on infant
speech perception (sensitivity to long-domain phonetic cues in word
recognition acquisition), phonetics and phonology (role of fine
phonetic detail in word recognition and its implications for current
trends in phonology), computational models of speech perception,
cognitive and neural underpinnings of speech perception, and pathology
(dyslexia and speech perception). Each session will include two or
three invited papers, followed by commentaries by up to three
designated discussants, and then open discussion. In addition, there
will be three poster sessions for contributed papers. Only one session
will be held at a time (no parallel sessions).

This will be an international workshop with a limited number of active
participants. Priority for places will be given to authors of

The workshop is organized by the laboratoire Parole et Langage, CNRS,
Aix-en-Provence (http://www.lpl.univ-aix.fr), under the aegis of the
International Speech Communication Association
(http://www.isca-speech.org).  It is sponsored by the Groupe
Francophone de la Communication Parlée.  It will be held in
conjunction with Speech Prosody 2002
(http://www.lpl.univ-aix.fr/projects/aix02), an international
conference held at Aix-en-Provence from 11 to 13 April 2002.

Poster papers are invited on the topics covered by the
workshop. Abstracts not exceeding 400 words must be submitted by
e-mail or in hard copy by 15 October 2001. They will be selected by
the Scientific Committee on the basis of their scientific merit and
relevance to the workshop. A booklet containing the abstracts will be
available at the start of the workshop.


Oxford University Press has expressed an interest in publishing the
invited papers and discussions, together with selected poster
presentations. There will be no other proceedings. In particular,
camera-ready papers need not be produced before the workshop, although
invited papers will be circulated beforehand to the designated
discussants, to give them time to prepare their comments.


The cost of the workshop will be finalized shortly. It should be in
the region of around 180 Euros. This includes registration, lunch,
tea/coffee during breaks, and the booklet with abstracts. Reduced
rates will be available for students and ISCA members.


15 Oct 2001: Submission of abstracts
01 Dec 2001: Notification of acceptance/rejection
31 Jan 2002: Invited speakers' papers circulated to designated discussants

The workshop will be held in the Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences
Humaines (http://www.mmsh.univ-aix.fr). Facilities include a
conference room and a cafeteria. Accommodation will be in some of the
many attractive hotels in the city of Aix-en-Provence
(http://www.aixenprovencetourism.com). The MMSH is about 15 minutes
away by bus from the center of the city.
