International Workshop in Phonetics
dedicated tho the memory of Farkas Kempelen

Location: Budapest, Hungary
Date: 11-Mar-2004 - 13-Mar-2004 Call
Deadline: 14-Nov-2003

Web Site: http://www.nytud.hu/kempelen2004.htm
Contact Person: Krisztina Menyhart
Meeting Email: kempelen2004 at nytud.hu
Linguistic Subfield(s): Phonetics

Meeting Description:

The conference is devoted to discussing issues related to the past,
present, and future of speech technology research. The International
Workshop Dedicated to the Memory of Farkas Kempelen will be held at
the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of
Sciences and hosted by its Kempelen Farkas Speech Research
Laboratory. Farkas Kempelen (or, known by the name of Wolfgang von
Kempelen) died 200 years ago in March, 1804. Although there was no
immediate impact of his scientific activity, after a certain amount of
time his work initiated a wide range of phonetic and speech technology
research. The 200-year anniversary of his death provides an
opportunity for present-day researchers to rethink the bridges between
past, present, and future.

The workshop is a forum for presentations concerning speech research
in the fields investigated by Kempelen, such as:

- issues in the history of science related to Kempelen's
life and work,
- history of experimental phonetics,
- old speech research devices of the world,
- disorders of speech motor control,
- articulatory synthesis,
- quality testing of synthesized speech,
- articulatory-acoustic relations,

This list of themes is not meant to be exhaustive.
