2nd International Workshop on Vocal Interactivity in-and-between Humans, Animals and Robots

29-30 August 2019
London, UK

VIHAR-2019 is the second international workshop on Vocal Interactivity in-and-between Humans, Animals and Robots. Taking place in London, UK on 29-30 August 2019, VIHAR-2019 aims to bring together researchers studying vocalisation and speech-based interaction in-and-between humans, animals and robots from a variety of different fields. VIHAR-2019 will provide an opportunity to share and discuss theoretical insights, best practices, tools and methodologies, and to identify common principles underpinning vocal behaviour in a multi-disciplinary environment.

VIHAR-2019 is scheduled to take place as a satellite event immediately before the 2019 International Bioacoustics Congress (which takes place in Brighton, UK). We are aiming to keep the registration fee as low as possible.

We invite original submissions of papers or extended abstracts that relate to innovative topics in any area of vocal interaction in-and-between humans, animals and robots. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two members of the Scientific Review Committee. Accepted submissions will be published in the (indexed) VIHAR-2019 Proceedings.

The workshop follows the success of the 1st International workshop on Vocal Interactivity in-and-between Humans, Animals and Robots (VIHAR-2017).
