VISPP SUMMER SCHOOL 2008 http://ioc.ee/vispp2008/ The Nordic Network on Variation in Speech Production and Perception (VISPP) will organize its Second International Summer School on Speech Variation in Kuressaare, Estonia in August 2008. This summer school will focus on different issues of variability in speech production and speech perception: - talk-in-interaction, - expressive speech, - multi-modal communication, including engineering approaches from multi-modal data collection to implementation in a talking agent. The lecturers of VISPP2008 are: - John Local (York University, UK), - Nick Campbell (ATR, Japan), - Björn Granström with colleagues (KTH, Sweden). One of the VISPP network's main goals is to establish contacts and promote cooperation between researchers and Ph.D. students from different countries and disciplines through workshops and courses. In this spirit, the Summer School welcomes post-graduate students from any country interested in the phenomena of spoken language variation and motivated to engage in open-minded interdisciplinary learning. Applicants from the Nordic and Baltic countries as well as from North-West Russia may apply for scholarships completely covering their participation fees and travel expenses.
