The graduate program "Task-Oriented Communication" is organizing a workshop
on "Perception and Production" to be held from December 14th - 15th, 2000 at
the Center for Interdisciplinary
Research (ZiF), University of Bielefeld, Germany.
Perception and production of information are fundamental components of communicating
systems. Thus they play a role in the examination of human-human interaction as well
as human-computer and computer-computer interaction:
The focus will be on the links between perception and production and the modeling
of the cognitive processes that lead from the percepts to concepts, which, in turn,
constitute the basis for internal storage and production.
- In human-human interaction, the foundations of production and perception of
information in various modalities can be experimentally examined and evaluated with
regard to the functionality of cognitive processes involved in, e.g., language
acquisition, speech perception and production, or gesture generation.
- In human-computer interaction, the understanding of perception and production
is the basis for the development and optimization of communicating systems, e.g.,
in sonification, speech synthesis, or recognition of prosodic cues.
- In computer-computer interaction perception and production can be implemented
and beyond that, their evolution can be studied in simulations, e.g., in artificial
As the graduate program unites students from both linguistics and computer science in
an interdisciplinary framework, the aim of this workshop is to bring together
researchers from various disciplines and with different theoretical, empirical,
and technical backgrounds to support an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.
