Call for papers

We invite contributions that discuss the influence of real communicative conditions on the production and perception of speech, on the (re)elaboration of theories of speech communication, on the implementation of applications for situated interaction, and on the resolution of real-world problems. In this respect, dimensions of particular concern are:

  • Dialogical interaction: humans speak with others to communicate linguistic meanings and influence behaviors, opinions and emotional states within the boundaries of the conversational structure;
  • Signal plurality: the acoustic signal is only one of many in a complex modular semiotic system aimed at transmitting information;
  • Dynamicity of signals: acoustic and physiological signals are organized and coordinated with each other in both time and space;
  • Physical environment: the communication takes place in physical settings that influence transmission quality.

In order to encourage discussion on these topics, the conference promotes a very broad approach integrating the phonetic, linguistic, psycholinguistic, cognitive, artificial intelligence, machine learning and signal analysis perspectives. Therefore, possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • the phonetic dimension of spoken interaction and its effects on communication;
  • the environmental dimension of spoken interaction and its effects on communication (e.g. co-presence of speakers and visual accessibility, noise, temperature, humidity, etc.);
  • the dynamical dimension of the signal (e.g. dynamic models of speech analysis, speech recognition models, etc.);
  • integration of acoustic and physiological signals in human and non-human communication for the interpretation of human and non-human communication;
  • integration and interpretation of phonetic and non-phonetic signals for the profiling of the speaker;
  • integration and interpretation of phonetic and non-phonetic signals for the automatic speech synthesis and recognition;
  • integration of signals in the interfaces for vocal interaction.

Following the tradition of AISV conferences, the programme will also include open sessions on any aspect of speech science research.
