On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th Speech Prosody conference which will be held in Poznań, Poland, on 13-16 June 2018.


Speech Prosody, the biennial meeting of the Speech Prosody Special Interest Group (SProSIG) of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), is the only recurring international conference focused on prosody as an organizing principle for the social, psychological, linguistic, and technological aspects of spoken language. Past conferences have been attended by 300-400 international experts representing a range of disciplines including linguistics, acoustics, speech synthesis and recognition, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, speech therapy, language teaching, computer science, electrical engineering, speech and hearing science and psychology.

The conference theme will be "Challenges and new prospects on prosody: research and technology".

Speech Prosody 2018 will be held at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, whose tradition reaches back to the 17th century. It is now the third largest university in Poland. With a population of over 600,000 inhabitants Poznań is one of the largest cities in Poland. There are more than 20 universities, higher schools & academies.

We are looking forward to an inspiring meeting with great scientists from all over the world and sharing new results and ideas.
