Upcoming:

25.09. – 27.09.2024:
Second International MultiModal Communication Symposium (MMSYM 2024) in Frankfurt!
We are hosting the next MMSYM at Goethe University Frankfurt.
MMSYM 2024 wants to emphasize the following three main research themes: (1) The gesture-speech integration, in particular the prosody-gesture link, (2) formal, automatic and machine-learning approaches to multimodality, and (3) psycholinguistic approaches in multimodal settings.

See the MMSYM 2024 website: mmsym.org and the Call for Papers for more info:

29.02.2024:
Talk (with Aleksandra Ćwiek, Paula G. Sánchez-Ramón, Frank Kügler and Pilar Prieto) at the Workshop “Prosody in Focus – Prominence Marking from Multiple Perspective” at the DGfS 2024 in Bochum, Germany. Title: “Bridging the Gap: Exploring a Middle-Way Approach for Prosodic Annotation”.

28.02.2024:
Talk (with Natascha Schuldes and Frank Kügler) at the Workshop “Prosody in Focus – Prominence Marking from Multiple Perspective” at the DGfS 2024 in Bochum, Germany. Title: “Let’s focus on Gesture and Prosody – Are they better together and deficient apart?”.
