Phonological Networks (‘PhoNet’) Workshop

Phonological Networks (‘PhoNet’) Workshop

Wednesday, 12/02/2020
LPL, conference room B011, Aix-en-Provence
Free entrance - accès libre (13h30-19h)

Organisers: Kristof Strijkers & Friedemann Pulvermüller

Objective: The objective of this workshop is two-fold: (1) to present and discuss the motivating questions, underlying theories, research objective and work program of the recently started joint French-German grant entitled ‘Phonological Networks in Speech Production and Perception’ (PhoNet), which is co-funded by the ANR and DFG (FRAL grant), and (2) to obtain input, comments and advice from international experts in psycho- and neurolinguistics.

The PhoNet project addresses the questions (i) whether the phonological brain networks recruited in speaking versus in listening to speech are the same or different, (ii) how these phonological networks interact with semantic and pragmatic neuronal circuits in speech production and understanding. A series of neuroimaging experiments will be presented which systematically compare within the same brains the spatial and temporal correlates elicited by specific phoneme categories during word production and word perception in different semantic and pragmatic contexts. Our invited experts, Dres. Pickering,  Fadiga and Hartsuiker will provide feedback on these proposed experiments as well as on the general theoretical framework of the project. The opening workshop will be framed by keynote lectures by our international experts on topics related to the current project.

AixDial : 22nd Workshop on the Semantics and Pragmatics of Dialogue

SEMDIAL 2018 (AixDial)

AixDial will be the 22nd edition of the SemDial workshop series, which aims to bring together researchers working on the semantics and pragmatics of dialogue in fields such as formal semantics and pragmatics, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience. In 2018 the workshop will be hosted by Aix Marseille University, and organized by the Language and Speech Lab (Laboratoire Parole et Langage) as well as the Computer Science Lab (Laboratoire d’Informatique et Systèmes). It will be collocated with Workshop on Prosody and Meaning: Information Structure and Beyond.
