The 12th International Seminar on Speech Production (ISSP),

organized through Haskins Laboratories, will take place June 1-4 2020 in Providence, RI, USA, at the Omni Convention Center Hotel.

Inaugurated in Grenoble in 1988, the ISSP is an international forum for researchers to share their work on all aspects of human speech production, including phonology, phonetics, prosody, biomechanics, signal processing, motor control, neuroscience, modeling, disordered speech and speech accommodation. The diversity of topics is a particular strength of the conference, providing opportunities for young researchers especially to be exposed to complementary ideas and methods apart from their immediate focus. Previous meetings have occurred in Sydney, Ubatuba (Brazil), Strasbourg, Montreal, Cologne, and Tianjin, and we anticipate that turnout for the Providence conference will be large and enthusiastic.

The overall theme of the conference is intended to foster discussion of how speech production develops, consolidates, and degenerates over the typical lifespan. The meeting is structured around eight invited speakers, each highlighting a subtopic of interest within their session:


Lisa Goffman (UT Dallas); language acquisition and its disorders

Elder speech

Cécile Fougeron (U. Sorbonne); effects of aging on coarticulation

Disordered Speech

Suzanne Boyce (U. Cincinnati); articulatory characteristics of motor deficits


Gabriel Mindlin (U. Buenos Aires); syllabic structure of birdsong


Brad Sutton (U. Illinois); rtMRI as a tool for viewing articulation across the entire vocal tract


Kristofer Bouchard (UCSF); eCOG as an emerging method for investigating speech motor planning and execution

Speech Interaction

Jennifer Pardo (Montclair State); aspects of phonetic convergence and turn-taking in conversational dyads

Speech Technology

Carol Espy-Wilson (U. Maryland); estimating articulatory gestures from acoustics
