Meeting Description:

Gesture and Speech in Interaction

After the first successful conference on Gesture and Speech in Interaction 2009 in Poznan, we have the pleasure to announce that the next GESPIN will take place in Bielefeld, 5-7 Sep 2011. The conference is jointly organised by several institutions at Bielefeld University, Germany and Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland.

With this conference we would like to promote interdisciplinary perspectives that facilitate an efficient understanding of the complexity of multimodal communication. We would like to invite linguists, phoneticians, speech technologists, computer and cognitive scientists as well as researchers from all other fields who share an interest in speech and gesture interfaces to participate in the GESPIN conference.

First Call for Papers

Gesture and Speech in Interaction
5 - 7 September, 2011
Universität Bielefeld

Papers on all topics related to speech and gesture are welcome. However this year, we especially invite papers that address prosody and gesture, i.e. timing relations between gesture and prosody, gestural prosody, integration of prosody and gesture, prosody and gesture acquisition using the following methodological foci:

1. Theory building and empirical investigations
2. Modeling of gesture and speech
3. Tools for an integrative analysis of speech and gesture corpora
4. Systems for gesture and speech annotation
5. Neurophysiological and neurobehavioural speech and gesture research, as well as:
6. Automatic speech and gesture recognition and synthesis system demos.

We also plan to accept tutorial and special session proposals.

Conference proceedings will include a selection of accepted papers and be published on a CD. The possibility of publishing extended versions of conference papers in an edited collection or a special issue of a journal is being considered.

Call for special sessions and tutorials: January 2011
