What is most often called disfluency - i.e. pauses, hesitations, prolongations, truncations,
repetitions, self repairs and similar - in normal spontaneous speech presents challenges for
researchers in many different fields, ranging from speech production and perception in psychology,
to conversational analysis and automatic speech recognition in speech technology.
Like previous DiSS workshops, the aim of this workshop is to discuss and elucidate various
aspects of this ubiquitous speech phenomenon from a wide variety of angles.
DiSS 2103 will allow an opportunity for researchers from diverse backgrounds to present their
research findings, to discuss common interests, to identify future directions and to establish
new research collaborations. DiSS 2013 will be an international workshop with a limited number
of active participants. Priority will be given to authors of accepted papers.
