Call for Papers

Extended submission dealine: April 5, 2010

Candidates are invited to submit anonymous two-page abstracts on research
related to the SPSASSD program by April 05, 2010. Notification of acceptance
will be sent out by May 7. Selected students will have the opportunity to
discuss their work with faculty and fellow participants by means of a poster

Eligible participants are: undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students in
any scientific area concerned with speech, from any academic institution in
Brazil; or graduate or post-doctoral students in the same areas from any
academic institution in any country having diplomatic relations with Brazil.

SPSASSD is aimed at attracting interest of promising young researchers in
contributing to the growth of speech science in Brazil. Over 200 languages,
immigrant and indigenous, are spoken throughout the country. Approaching them
with the tools of frontier speech science can open countless new horizons.

Students who would consider pursuing an academic career in the field in the
state of São Paulo are encouraged to apply for a FAPESP scholarship for
attendance. For opportunities, see:
FAPESP will cover selected candidates' travel and living expenses. 30
scholarships covering travel and living expenses will be offered to students
coming from outside Brazil! Beneficiaries of FAPESP scholarships/fellowships may
apply for participation, but are not eligible for funding, as they must use
'reserva técnica'.

Training in theory and method for the study of speech dynamics will be offered
through 7 mini-courses, 5 lectures and 3 round-tables. The faculty consists of
experts in the field working in the USA, Europe, and Brazil. All sessions will
be plenary.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
