CONFERENCE TOPICS :

Audio archives are common in different disciplines within the social
sciences and humanities and Information and Communications Technology,
from the various fields of linguistics (phonetics, phonology,
dialectology, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, etc) and speech
technologies (natural language processing, automatic speech recognition,
etc), to oral history, ethnography, sociology, anthropology, and
psychology.

They contain vast amounts of information relevant to social sciences and
humanities but at the same time they are underutilized material of
intangible cultural heritage. Crucially, the fragmentation of archives,
repositories, and data centres undermines the accessibility and reuse of
oral archives.

The conference aims at discussing possibilities for a closer
collaboration between speech scientists, conversation analysists, speech
technologists and oral historians.

Potential questions include :

* What are the challenges involved in the re-use of speech and oral
archives collected for other purposes ?
* What kind of opportunities do oral archives provide for speech
technology ?
* What do linguistic uses of historical narratives look like ? What are
the opportunities and challenges of using oral history archives in
linguistic research ? What are the opportunities and challenges of
phonetic tools for oral history and social sciences ? In what ways
could oral historians profit from a closer collaboration ?
* What are the challenges involved in the long-term preservation and in
the metadata description of digital archives ? What are the challenges
and the risks associated to legal and ethical issues ?
* What are the opportunities and the threats associated to online audio
archives sharing ? What are the long-established standards and the
welcomed ones ? What are the online share-platforms and the forthcoming
projects ? What are the opportunities at EU level for the preservation
and maintenance of audio archives ?

Following the tradition of AISV conferences, the programme will also
include open sessions on any aspect of speech science research.

The languages of the conference are Italian and English. Power Point
presentations and posters should be written in English.
