Welcome to ISSP 2014 in Cologne

We are pleased to announce the 10th International Seminar on Speech Production, which will take place in Cologne from 5th to 8th May 2014. This international meeting was launched in 1988 in Grenoble, with the aim of providing an interdisciplinary forum for researchers working on all aspects of speech production from fields as diverse as phonology, phonetics, prosody, mechanics, acoustics, physiology, motor control, neuroscience, computer science and human interaction. At this meeting we shall be celebrating the tenth anniversary of this series.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Cologne, a city famous for its Gothic Cathedral, a vibrant arts and music scene, the Rhine and much more.

Susanne Fuchs, Martine Grice, Anne Hermes, Leonardo Lancia, Doris Mücke
