Meeting Description:

DiSS-LPSS Joint Workshop 2010 is a satellite meeting of INTERSPEECH 2010 that
focuses on speech disfluency and spontaneous speech.

DiSS is a series of interdisciplinary workshops (Berkeley, 1999; Edinburgh,
2001; Goteborg, 2003; Aix-en-Provence, 2005), which have been addressing
disfluency - stalls, hesitations, and self-repairs - in normal spontaneous
speech from a wide range of disciplines, from automatic speech recognition to
linguistic analysis and psycholinguistics.

LPSS, another interdisciplinary workshop on spontaneous speech, took place in
Taiwan in 2006, focusing on a broader range of phenomena in spontaneous speech
including automatic speech recognition, prosody, spoken dialogues, and disfluency.

The 5th Workshop on Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech
The 2nd International Symposium on Linguistic Patterns in Spontaneous Speech

Date: September 25-26, 2010
Place: Hongo Campus, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo

Invited Speakers:

- Shigeaki Amano (Faculty of Human Informatics, Aichi Shukutoku University)
- Dale Barr (Department of Psychology, University of California)
