Ort Berlin

After two successful editions in Lubmin (2004) and Autrans (2007), the 3rd International CPMSP2 Summer School on “Cognitive and Physical Models of Speech Production, Speech Perception and Production-Perception Interaction” was held in Berlin from the 27th of September to the 1st of October 2010.

The focus of this summer school was the planning of speech sequences and its interactions with dynamical properties of speech production and speech perception. It was organized around 9 tutorials addressing related issues from the linguistic, neurophysiologic, motor control, and perception perspectives.
