3-2-4 (2016-05-31) Speech Prosody 2016, Boston University, MA, USA
Speech Prosody 2016, the eighth international conference on speech prosody, will be hosted at Boston University, May 31 to June 3, 2016. We invite papers addressing any aspect of the science and technology of prosody. This year, we especially invite submissions concentrating on variation and differences both at the level of the community and that of the individual. 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, Shanghai and Dublin 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.

Aoju Chen, Universiteit Utrecht
