Interdisciplinary Workshop on Laughter and other Non-Verbal Vocalisations in Speech
Following the previous workshops on laughter held in Saarbruecken (2007), Berlin (2009), and Dublin (2012), we have the pleasure to announce a forthcoming workshop in Enschede, the Netherlands in April 2015.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together scientists from diverse research areas and to provide an exchange forum for interdisciplinary discussions in order to gain a better understanding of laughter and other non-verbal vocalisations. The workshop will consist of invited talks and oral presentations of ongoing research and discussion papers.
