The 2nd International Conference on Tone and Intonation (TAI 2023), Singapore, November 18-21, 2023

Theme:  East Meets West: Languages and Approaches


We are delighted to announce the upcoming 2nd International Conference on Tone and Intonation (TAI 2023), to be held in the vibrant city of Singapore during 18-21 November 2023. Jointly sponsored by the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA) and the International Phonetic Association (IPA), this event is organized by the Chinese and Oriental Languages Information Processing Society (COLIPS) and the Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence Association (PREMIA), with valuable support from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

The theme of this year’s conference is “East Meets West: Languages and Approaches”. Building on this theme, we aim to foster a dialogue between Eastern and Western perspectives in the study of tone and intonation. We cordially invite you to participate and contribute to this unique academic discourse. We especially encourage submissions that explore and compare Eastern and Western languages and methodologies, thus contributing to a more comprehensive and global understanding of tone and intonation.

Submissions related to phonetic and phonological analyses of tone and intonation are eagerly anticipated at TAI 2023. We welcome contributions on various topics, including, but not limited to, the production and perception of tone and intonation, the semantics and pragmatics of tone and intonation, the acquisition and teaching of tone and intonation in L1 and L2, and cross-linguistic comparisons of tone and intonation. In line with our theme, we particularly encourage submissions that explore the intersection of Eastern and Western approaches to these topics. In the spirit of interdisciplinarity, we also invite researchers from adjacent fields to submit papers on tone and intonation, further broadening the scope and enriching the discussions at the conference.

Prospective authors are invited to submit a 2-page abstract (1-page text and 1-page tables/ figures/ references) through our paper submission system. After the conference, authors can submit an optional 5-page full paper for inclusion in the ISCA Proceedings.
