Meeting Description:

The purpose of this conference is to discuss production/perception of
emotions contained in the human voice and technological applications. The
conference focuses on how vocal emotions are produced and perceived, what
are the minimal cues defining specific vocal emotions, how are these
emotions produced by live and virtual actors, what is the impact vocal
emotions (i.e. of cartoon voices) on listeners in a cross-cultural, gender
and age context, and how production of expected vocal emotions is hindered
by disease and by technological constraints.
