Following the successes of the ICPhS Satellite Meeting
Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech
in Berkeley in 1999 and
in Edinburgh, we are proud to present DiSS 03, to be held
at Gothenburg University in September 2003.
What has often been called disfluencies pauses, hesitations,
prolongations, truncations, self-repairs (self-induced or other-induced),
et simile in normal spontaneous speech, with or without
accompanying gestures, present challenges for researchers in many different
fields, ranging from speech production and perception in psychology, to
conversational analysis, and automatic speech recognition in speech
With the availability of large corpora of spontaneous speech, recent
years have seen an increase in interest in the phenomena within all these
fields, and the papers presented at
covered a wide variety of different scientific fields.
As was the case with the two previous workshops, DiSS03
will allow an opportunity for researchers from diverse backgrounds to
present their research findings, to discuss common interests, to
identify future directions and to establish new research collaborations.
DiSS 03 will be an international workshop with a limited
number of active participants. Priority for places will be given to
authors of accepted papers.
All accepted papers will be published in printed and CD-ROM proceedings
volume, which will be made available at the start of the workshop.
A limited number of grants for participation is available. More information
is available through:
DiSS 03 was timed to be convenient for participants of
to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, September 14, 2003.
