[AUDITORY] VIHAR-2017: 1st Int. Workshop on Vocal Interactivity in-and-between Humans, Animals and Robots

(apologies for any unintended cross-mailing)


1st International Workshop on Vocal Interactivity in-and-between Humans, Animals and Robots (VIHAR-2017)

25-26 August 2017
University of Skövde, Sweden

VIHAR-2017 aims to bring together researchers studying vocalisations and speech-based interaction in-and- between humans, animals and robots from a variety of different fields. The workshop is being organised by participants of a recent Dagstuhl Seminar on the same topic, and follows the publication of a short review article: http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/frobt.2016.00061/full. VIHAR-2017 will provide a timely opportunity for scientists and engineers from different fields to share theoretical insights, best practices, tools and methodologies, and to identify common principles underpinning vocal behaviour in a multi-disciplinary environment.

The programme of talks is available at http://vihar-2017.vihar.org/programme/

We will also have four excellent Keynote speakers: Irene Pepperberg, Gabriel Skantze, Arik Kershenbaum and Véronique Aubergé: http://vihar-2017.vihar.org/keynotes/
