Welcome to ISSP 2020 in Providence

Following on a series of successful, productive, and highly enjoyable meetings, we are pleased to announce that the 12th International Seminar on Speech Production (ISSP 2020) will be held in Providence from June 1st – 4th, 2020 at the Omni Rhode Island Convention Center Hotel. This conference series was launched in 1988 in Grenoble with the aim of providing an interdisciplinary forum for researchers working on all aspects of speech production, with subsequent iterations in Leeds (1990), Old Saybrook (1993), Autrans (1996), Kloster Seeon (2000), Sydney (2003), Ubatuba (2006), Strasbourg (2008), Montreal (2011), Cologne (2014), and Tianjin (2017).

Please subscribe to the mailing list to be included in conference announcements.

Topics of interest for this meeting include but are not limited to coarticulation, prosody, speech neuroscience, disordered speech, speech in aging populations, speech development, phonetic convergence, articulatory synthesis, acoustic-to-articulatory inversion, speech motor control, biomechanical modeling, instrumental techniques, speech technology, co-speech gesturing, and perturbation-induced plasticity.

Providence is a lively and friendly city with easy transportation options available, located 40 minutes by train from Boston and 2.5 hours from NYC. We look forward to welcoming you there for this latest iteration of the ISSP!
