Speech Research

Ninth scientific conference with international participation
Zagreb, December 8th-10th 2016.

About the conference

Speech Research is a Croatian scientific conference with international participation which allows the presentation of new scientific research and knowledge in the field of phonetics. Phonetic sciences are interdisciplinary by nature, so the conference provides an opportunity to gather experts and researchers from different disciplines. The main topic of this year’s conference is speech prosody, but papers covering other speech-related topics are equally welcome. As a part of the central topic, a session will be devoted to Professor Branko Vuletić, who contributed to the Croatian phonetics with his research of spoken language in the perception of literary works.

International collaboration and interdisciplinary approach make this conference extremely important, not only for advances in phonetics, but also for Croatian science in general. The Conference is organized by the Phonetics Section of the Croatian Philological Association, and the Department of Phonetics at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb. The first conference took place in 1984 (under the name Speech communications), and since the 2nd conference in 1995, the Speech Research conference is organized triennially, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013. The conference takes place in Zagreb, Croatia. The official languages are Croatian and English.
