Gesture and Speech in Interaction - GeSpIn 2019

The uniqueness of previous GESPIN meetings comprises the strong coordination of gestures with speech (including its prosodical, phonological, lexical, morpho-syntactical, semantic as well as pragmatic properties).
This 6th GeSpIn Conference in 2019 will focus on the heterogeneity of this coordination.

It will take place at Paderborn University from Sept 11 - 13, 2019.

Keynote Speaker:

* Şeyda Özçalışkan (Georgia State University, USA)
* Pilar Prieto (Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona, Spain)
* Petra Wagner (Bielefeld University, Germany)
* Alexis Heloir (Saarland University, Germany)

Topics and related questions:

  • Development of gesture-speech coordination: Can general principles of development be identified? Are there sensitive periods and developmental stages?
  • Individual differences in coordinating speech and gestures: Are there developmental differences beyond infancy / childhood? How do various population groups (elder people, people with autism spectrum disorders, people with cognitive or language impairments) coordinate gesture and speech?
  • Benefits of multimodal coordination for learning in individuals and in a variety of settings: Are there forms of coordination that universally scaffold learning processes?
  • Coding challenges to account for different ways of coordinating gesture and speech: What are the established practices and how they cope with heterogeneity of gesture-speech coordination?
  • Computational models dealing with heterogenous data and/or generating behavior that differs across, for example, situation or addressees: What aspects of heterogeneity are considered so far and for what purpose?
  • Cross-cultural differences on gesture-speech coordination: Is development following a universal paths that is culturally shaped? How do cultural groups differ in the ways they coordinate gestures and speech?
  • Heterogeneity across situations and contexts: Do situations differ due to familiarity with the environment or interlocutors? Do communicative genres require specific types of coordination?
