Call for Papers

Speech Prosody 2014, the seventh international conference on speech prosody, invites papers addressing any aspect of the science and technology of prosody, speaking styles, and voice quality. Speech Prosody, the biennial meeting of the Speech Prosody Special Interest Group (SProSIG) of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), is the only recurring international conference focused on prosody as an organizing principle for the social, psychological, linguistic, and technological aspects of spoken language. Past conferences in Aix-en-Provence, Nara, Dresden, Campinas, Chicago, and Shanghai have each attracted 300-400 delegates, including experts in the fields of Linguistics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Speech and Hearing Science, Psychology, and related disciplines.

Our focus this year is on Social Prosody

Paper Format

From this year on, a new paper format will be used: 4 pages of text plus one page (maximum) for references only. This will facilitate the sometimes difficult arbitration between work description and citation coverage. Any paper with text on the 5th page other than references will be rejected. Camera-ready full papers (pdf) are expected for review.
