DiSS 2019 will be held in Budapest, at Eötvös Loránd University, on  September 12-14, 2019.

Following the successes of the Disfluency in Spontaneous Speech workshop in Berkeley (1999) and the DiSS workshops in Edinburgh (2001), Göteborg (2003), Aix-en-Provence (2005), Tokyo (2010), Stockholm (2013), Edinburgh (2015) and Stockholm (2017), we are proud to announce DiSS 2019, to be held at the ELTE Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary, in September 2019. The workshop is a satellite event of INTERSPEECH 2019.

What is most often called disfluency– i.e. pauses, hesitations, prolongations, truncations, repetitions, self‑repairs and similar – in normal spontaneous speech presents challenges for researchers in many different fields, ranging from speech production and perception in psychology, to conversational analysis and automatic speech recognition in speech technology.

DiSS 2019 will allow an opportunity for researchers from diverse backgrounds to present their research findings, to discuss common interests, to identify future directions and to establish new research collaborations. DiSS 2019 will be a two-day international workshop with an additional special day on (Dis)Fluency in Children’s Speech. All accepted papers will be published.

The call for the special day on (Dis)fluency in Children’s Speech is accessible on http://diss2019.elte.hu/index.php/special-day-on-disfluency-in-childrens-speech/

Submissions are encouraged within the following fields: disfluency in spontaneous speech, psychology, neuropsychology and neurocognition, psycholinguistics, linguistics, conversation analysis, computational linguistics, speech technology, gesture analysis, dialog systems, the specifics of pathological speech disfluency and evolutionary aspects on speech production and perception.

All accepted papers will be published and available in electronic proceedings versions and will be made available at the start of the workshop.
