Call for tutorials

We encourage organisation of tutorials focused around practical skills required in prosodic research, including software and hardware tools as well as experimental, computational and analytic methods and techniques. However, any kind of tutorials related to speech prosody (in teaching, therapy, art etc.) that may be of interest of the community will be taken into consideration. Tutorials will be organised within the conference, using its facilities. Therefore we need detailed information on your plans and requirements.
