LabPhon 13
The 13th Conference on Laboratory Phonology

Stuttgart, Germany, July 27-29, 2012

Phonological and phonetic competence: between grammar, signal processing, and neural activity.
Final symposium of the DFG Priority programme 1234.

Satellite workshop of LabPhon 13,
Stuttgart, Germany, July 26th, 2012

Organizers: Johannes Knaus 1, Katrin Schneider 2

Since 2006 the Priority Programme 1234 Phonological and phonetic competence: between grammar, signal processing, and neural activity sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) brings together high quality research from the areas of phonology, phonetics, neuro- and psycholinguistics. The projects of the Priority Programme seek to advance these disciplines by the joint pursuit of interdisciplinary research questions. As a satellite event of LabPhon 13, the projects will present their recent and ongoing investigations to the scientific community in a one-day workshop. Research topics comprise prosodic phenomena such as stress, intonation, syllabic and vocalic properties. These are investigated from various perspectives, viz. articulation and production, processing, acquisition, perception and neuronal representation. For a detailed overview of the projects involved refer to the tabular overview on the Priority Programme's website (spp1234.de/en/projekte_2_en.html). We are looking forward to discuss new insights and implications that can be drawn from our work and hope that the open scientific exchange will push the disciplines of phonology and phonetics forward.

The presentations are restricted to the members and projects of the Priority Programme 1234, however, all participants of the LabPhon  13 are cordially invited to attend the talks or poster presentations.

Venue

The workshop will be held on Thursday July 26, 2012, the day before LabPhon conference, at the Institute for Natural Language Processing (IMS), which is located on the Stuttgart University main campus in Vaihingen. The venue can be reached by public S-Bahn from the city center and the main conference location (lines S1, S2, S3; S-Bahn stop “Universität”, 10 minutes from main station). Trains go every 10 minutes during the day, every 5 minutes during rush hour.
