We have the pleasure to announce that the Centre for Speech and
Language Processing at the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland
is organising an international conference on speech and gesture in
interaction. The event will be organised in collaboration with:
School of English, AMU
Institute of Linguistics, AMU
Institute of Polish Philology, AMU
We are deeply convinced that interdisciplinary perspectives allow for
the most efficient understanding of the complexity of multimodal
communication. Therefore, we would like to invite linguists,
psychologists, phoneticians, speech technologists and language
engineers as well as researchers from all other fields who share the
interest in speech and gesture-based communication to participate in
the GESPIN conference. We hope for a fruitful meeting and inspiring

We are planning to release the first official call for papers in
September 2008. For the time being, we suggest the following list of
conference themes and topics:

Timing relationships between gesture and prosody, prosodic aspects of
gesture, integration of prosody and gesture;
Relationships between: gesture and prosody, prosody and speech, speech
and gesture; language (morphosyntax, semantics) and gesture;
Semantic aspects of gestures;
Speech and gesture: grammars and lexicons;
Tools for an integrative analysis of speech and gesture corpora;
Systems for gesture and speech annotation;
Modeling gesture and speech;
Formal models of gesture.
Automatic gesture recognition.
Visual speech synthesis;
Word, utterance and gesture structure.

We will invite submissions of papers and posters as well as accept
tutorial and special session proposals. The proceedings will include a
