3-3-28 (2021-12-02) 2nd International Seminar on the Foundations of Speech (SEFOS II) 2021, Sonderborg, Denmark

2nd International Seminar on the Foundations of Speech (SEFOS II) 2021

Theme: Articulation and Prosody: Between Interface and Integration

Date: 2-4 December 2021, Sonderborg, Denmark


The links between articulation and prosody are a subject of growing interest. It is driven, among other things, by increasingly powerful measurement, analysis and recording techniques, by the discovery of syntagmatic and paradigmatic structures in prosody and the simultaneous undermining of strictly linear-segmental models in articulation, as well as the by rapid rise of speech technology and the associated increasing relevance of the emotions, speaking styles, attitudes, social hierarchies, social-role marking, etc. But, how far have we really come in understanding the links between articulation and prosody?


The 2nd International Seminar on the Foundations of Speech (SEFOS II) will be a forum to discuss these questions. Reflecting the development of the articulation-prosody research and continuing the successful concept of the first SEFOS, SEFOS II shall again be a strongly interdisciplinary event. We therefore cordially invite not only all members of the speech-science community to take part in SEFOS II, but also interested members from related fields such as general linguistics, medicine, audiology, psychology, rhetoric, pedagogy, language/speech technology and engineering sciences.


Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee decided to conduct the conference in the form of a HYBRID CONFERENCE combining a live in person event with a virtual component.
