Themes and topics

Papers on all topics related to speech and gesture are welcome. However this year, we especially invite papers that address prosody and gesture, i.e. timing relations between gesture and prosody, gestural prosody, integration of prosody and gesture, prosody and gesture acquisition using the following methodological foci:

  • theory building and empirical investigations
  • modeling of gesture and speech
  • tools for an integrative analysis of speech and gesture corpora
  • systems for gesture and speech annotation
  • neurophysiological and neurobehavioural speech and gesture research
  • as well as: automatic speech and gesture recognition and synthesis system demos.

We also plan to accept tutorial and special session proposals.
