ICPLA10 2004

The 10th meeting of International Clinical Phonetics & Linguistics
Association will take place in Lafayette, Louisiana in 2004, and the
Organising Committee is now issuing the formal Call for Papers.

The Conference will take place from Wednesday night 26 February 2004
until Saturday 29th. An innovation for ICPLA10 will be the introduction
of a fourth plenary lecture, on Wednesday night, just before the
welcoming buffet/reception. This plenary will be presented by Dr John W.
Oller, Jr., and the other plenary speakers will be advertised soon.

ICPLA10 has been timed to allow delegates to attend the Mardi Gras
celebrations in Louisiana just before the conference starts. Mardi Gras
parades and festivities take place, of course, in New Orleans, and Baton
Rouge. But there are also many other towns in the Acadiana region of the
state that hold celebrations. Lafayette itself hosts several parades,
and arrangements will be made with the conference hotel to provide
special rates for delegates deciding to come a day or two early. Full
details on accommodations and costs will be available in the next couple
of months, and members will be e-mailed. Details will also be made
available on the ICPLA website
http://www.ucs.louisiana.edu/~mjb0372/ICPLA.html

Call for Papers
We now invite all ICPLA members to submit abstracts for consideration at
ICPLA10. We do also welcome abstracts from non-members. Papers are
welcome all areas of our field.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically to [log in to unmask]
The abstract should be no longer than 350 words; please state whether
you wish the abstract to be considered as an oral presentation (20 mins
+ 10 mins discussion) or a poster, or for either. As with ICPLA9, we
hope to publish selected papers in Clinical Linguistics and Phonetics
and Journal of Multilingual Communication Disorders.

Please provide abstracts in the following format: title; author(s) and
affiliation(s); text of abstract; references (please keep to minimum);
status (oral / poster / either); name and full postal address of
communicating author, together with phone, fax, and e-mail details.

Please submit abstracts by 30th May 2003. We aim to inform authors of
the reviewers' decisions during July 2003. If you have any queries,
please consult the Organising Committee on [log in to unmask]

International Conference on Tone and Intonation

Language Description

Meeting Description:

The International Conference on Tone and Intonation will be held at
the Santorini Image Hotel in Massaria (Santorini, Greece), 9-11
September 2004. The conference is the closing event of a three-year
scientific exchange programme funded by the European Science
Foundation as the Network 'Tone and Intonation in Europe' (TIE). The
aim of the network has been to stimulate and coordinate research on
the prosody of European languages and language varieties, with special
emphasis on languages that feature lexical tone. The workshops have
been devoted to tonogenesis, experimental procedures, and typology,
and have attempted to embed the discussion of the European languages
in a global typological perspective.

The conference intends to close off the Network programme in the same
spirit, and will thus include contributions dealing with European as
well as non-European languages. While there will be a preference for
papers on the interaction between intonation and lexical tone,
typologically, historically and psycholinguistically oriented work,
including brain imaging research, on either tone or intonation is
welcomed.

Invited speakers:

Gösta Bruce (Lund)
Jack Gandour (Purdue)
José Hualde (Illinois)

This announcement also serves as the first call for
abstracts. Abstracts are invited on any of the topics mentioned in the
conference description. They should have no more than 400 words,
excluding bibliographical references and illustrations, and not exceed
two pages. They should either be Word-files or pdf-files and be sent
as email attachments to [log in to unmask] before 1 March 2004.

6th North West Centre for Linguistics Conference: Prosody and
Pragmatics

Short Title: 6th NWCL Conference
Location: Preston, Lancashire, United Kingdom
Date: 14-Nov-2003 - 16-Nov-2003
Call Deadline: 23-May-2003

Web Site: http://www.nwcl.salford.ac.uk
Contact Person: Anne Wichmann
Meeting Email: [log in to unmask]

Linguistic Subfield(s): Pragmatics, Phonology, Phonetics

Meeting Description:
Organised by Anne Wichmann (University of Central Lancashire) and
Diane Blakemore (University of Salford)

Invited speakers: Carlos Gussenhoven, Jill House, John Local, Deirdre
Wilson

The focus in research in prosody has recently moved from intonational
phonology to areas which interface with other domains, most notably
discourse and pragmatics. At the same time, research in pragmatics and
discourse has recognized a need to take account of prosodic
phenomena. In this way, it has become possible to identify a set of
phenomena where research in pragmatics feeds into research in prosody
and vice versa - for example, focus and information structure,
questions about processing units and the identification of an
utterance, the communication of attitudes and emotions, constraints on
implicatures.

The aim of this conference is to provide a forum in which researchers
from prosody and pragmatics can pool their research, and in this way
contribute to a fuller understanding of the role prosody plays in
pragmatic interpretation.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite abstracts for papers (30 mins + 10 mins
discussion). Abstracts will be chosen both for the inherent quality of
the particular prosodic/pragmatic analyses they offer and their
potential contribution to the development of the interface between
prosody and pragmatics.

A selection of papers from the conference will be published in a
Special Issue of The Journal of Pragmatics (eds. Anne Wichmann & Diane
Blakemore).

Submission of abstracts:
Abstracts must conform to the following guidelines:
_ abstracts must be sent in electronic form (Word, WP, RTF)
_ abstracts must be no longer than 1 page (A4) and typed in a Times
New Roman (12pt) font
_ abstracts must have the title of the paper centred at the top of the page
_ the author's name, affiliation and title of paper must be given on a
separate page (abstracts will be refereed anonymously)

Deadlines:

Abstracts must sent in electronic form (Word, WP, RTF) to Anne
Wichmann and Diane Blakemore at the addresses below by 23 May 2003.
You will be notified if your abstract has been accepted by 13 June 2003.

Postdoc opportunity at ENST, Paris

ENST (Paris) and LORIA/ISA and LORIA/Speech Group are involed in a 
project aiming at assisting second language acquisition. The first stage 
of this project is to assemble already developed components, a basic 3D 
face model, 2D vocal-tract model, and an acoustic model of the vocal 
tract for speech synthesis, to formulate a coherent speaking head.

We have already developed a basic 3D face model, in addition to 2D 
vocal-tract model, and an acoustic model of the vocal tract for speech 
synthesis. In the 3D model, 65 vertices represent the face; most of them 
located on the lower half of the face where deformations are important. 
Five "articulatory" parameters control the position of these vertices 
during speech production.  Although we obtain a rough human face like 
object by connecting (or meshing) the vertices, it is not adequate for 
the language acquisition purpose. We need a more realistic looking face 
model. We seek therefore a specialist in the image processing who is 
interested in the mapping of face deformations in the rough 
representation onto a generic head model having a much finer mesh 
representation and a texture, such as Poser. The obtained realistic face 
will be combined with the 2D vocal-tract model and the acoustic 
synthesizer to constitute a coherent speaking head. We expect a 
post-doctoral researcher to work for one year in Paris.

Scientific requirement: The candidate must have a Ph.D and a strong 
experience in Computer vision and/or Speech processing (articulatory 
modeling). The candidate will be working in collaboration with members 
of the LORIA/Speech, LORIA/ISA and ENST/TSI group. We expect a 
post-doctoral researcher to work on his/her preferred topics within the 
interest of the project. We would also appreciate and value his/her own 
initiatives in the project.
