Meeting Description: 

This ASA Special Workshop on Speech revolves around the fundamental question of
how experience with language systematically shapes perception of even the most
basic building blocks of spoken communication - consonants and vowels. The
topics will cover current theoretical perspectives and recent research on
cross-language speech perception. Specific topics include basic issues and
findings, neuropsychological undrepinnings, and language-training applications
related to language-tuned speech perception. 

Dear colleague: 

We are writing to let you know about a special 2-day workshop on Cross-Language
Speech Perception and Variations in Linguisitic Experience, to be held 22-23
May, 2009, in Portland Oregon. The workshop will be held at the end of the ASA's
spring meeting in Portland, May 18-22, 2009. It is being sponsored by the
Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and co-sponsored by the universities and
research labs of the organizing committee members, listed below.

The Cross-Language Speech Perception workshop has lined up an exciting slate of
invited speakers, including a keynote address by Winifred Strange, with a
closing address by James J. Jenkins.  In addition, we have scheduled two
contributed talk sessions and two contributed poster sessions to permit a wide
range of submitted presentations. We especially encourage graduate students to
participate and present, and are offering six student travel awards to support
that goal.

For further information about the workshop, including abstract submission,
invited speakers, registration and student travel awards, please see the
attached e-poster, and/or our web site:


The venue for the workshop will be the beautiful World Trade Centre on the
scenic riverfront of Portland, Oregon, which is a short walk from the Portland
Hilton Hotel where the ASA Meeting will be held. 

We hope that you and your students will be able to join us, and we look forward
to an exciting workshop!

Warm regards from the workshop organizing committee:
