Host Institution: La Baume, Aix-en-Provence
Dates: 30-Sep-2013 — 04-Oct-2013
Location: Aix-en-Provence, France
Focus: Speech Production and Perception: Speaker-Specific Behavior
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate
This summer school is mainly intended for graduate students, post-docs or researchers who work in the field of speech production, perception and perception-production interaction.
We seek to link findings from different disciplines by asking the following
— Which speaker-specific behaviors are crucial for a better understanding of
the mechanisms underlying speech production and perception and which are less
important? What can it tell us? Why?
— Does information about the speaker help listeners to extract meaning?
— Do physical and cognitive differences among individuals matter for native
— How do we deal with speaker-specific behavior statistically?
One of the aims of the summer school is to provide a forum for exchanges
between students, junior and senior researchers and encourage all participants
to contribute to the dialog.
Please send a letter of motivation and an abstract (no longer than 1 page) of
your prospective contribution.
Deadline for Abstracts: 15th May 2013
Notification of Acceptance: 15th June 2013
