The focus of this workshop is on tone and intonation, aspects of speech which are crucial for language and communication. Significantly, these aspects of speech are also indispensable in the development of speech technology.
In this workshop we lay emphasis on certain aspects of speech and communication in its diverse but interconnected and related forms, i.e. linguistics, speech & signal processing and other computational aspects. The workshop includes invited talks by scholars working in the domain of speech and language and provides a platform for interdisciplinary interaction among students, scholars and faculties working on tone and intonation.
The workshop is organized by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences from 26-27 January 2012. The workshop venue is the New Conference Centre at the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati.
