Call For Papers

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

First call for papers

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, Poznan, 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.

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
6. as well as: 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
