Applications of Phonetic Research

Kraków, POLAND
19-23 September, 2005

Organized by
Polish Phonetic Association
AGH University of Science and Technology

Supported by
Acoustics Committee of the Polish Academy of Science
Institute of Linguistics, Adam Mickiewicz University

The conference, organized to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 
Polish Phonetic Association (PTFon), is of interest to several 
scientific communities, including Human Language and Speech Technology, 
Linguistics, Phonetics, Phoniatrics and Musicology. Its scientific 
program covers a wide variety of topics related to the contemporary 
applications of phonetics. While the meeting will be focused mainly on 
the fields of speech analysis, processing, synthesis and recognition, 
contributions from many other areas of speech and language studies are 
warmly invited. We intend to create an open forum for speech 
communication science thought exchange to take the advantage of the 
variety of research perspectives and approaches.

The Call for Papers is addressed to researchers engaged in either 
academic or industrial research. In order to support the 
multi-disciplinary goal of the conference, the Scientific and Organizing 
Committees include representatives of various scientific communities.

The scientific program will include invited talks, presentations of 
accepted  papers in oral and poster sessions, referenced demonstrations 
of innovative applications and products, and panel sessions. The mode of 
presentation (oral versus poster) will be based on the appropriateness 
of the paper to that mode of communication.

Main scientific areas:
# applications of phonetics in speech synthesis and recognition;
#prosody in speech synthesis, recognition and analysis;
# pitch perception in music and speech
# corpus-based methods in speech synthesis and recognition;
# natural and synthetic expressive speech;
# voice quality in natural and synthetic speech;
# evaluation of speech synthesis and recognition systems;
# applications of phonetics in audiology and phoniatrics: speech signal 
analysis based medical diagnostics;
# pragmaphonetics in discourse and dialogue analysis;
# text and speech machine processing and translation.

Chair: Grażyna Demenko (President of Polish Phonetic Association; Adam 
Mickiewicz University in Poznań)
