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 presentations. 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. CURRENT LIST OF INVITED SPEAKERS Alain de Cheveigné, IRCAM, Paris John Coleman, Oxford University, UK Carolyn Drake, LPE, CNRS, Univ. Descartes, Paris, France Gareth Gaskell, University of York, UK Stephen Goldinger, Arizona State University, USA Stephen Grossberg, Boston University, USA Michel Habib, LPL, Aix-en-Provence, France Peter Jusczyk, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA Björn Lindblom, Stockholm University, Sweden John Local, University of York, UK Brian Moore, University of Cambridge, UK Robert Remez, Columbia University, New York, USA Stuart Rosen, University College London, UK CALL FOR POSTER COMMUNICATIONS 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. PUBLISHED PROCEEDINGS 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. REGISTRATION 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.
