     Österreichisches Forschungsinstitut für Artificial Intelligence
                    is pleased to announce the

                "Workshop on Prosodic Annotation"

                  held by  Anna Bruggeman
          (Universität zu Köln, Institut für Phonetik)

date:     20.-21. June 2016
time:     9:00 - 13:00 
location: Österreichisches Forschungsinstitut
          für Artificial Intelligence, OFAI
          Freyung 6, Stiege 6, 1010 Wien

The workshop will focus on DIMA
a recently developed consensus annotation scheme for prosodic annotation
of German. DIMA's primary aim is to provide the tools for a phonetically
informed phonological transcription that can be used and interpreted by
researchers with different backgrounds.

The goal of the workshop is to introduce newcomers to the prosodic
annotation of speech data and will help interested researchers master
their own annotation projects. Following an introduction into computer
aided annotation of prosody in speech and or multimodal corpora, and a
general introduction into ToBI annotation systems
(http://www.ling.ohio-state.edu/~tobi/), the DIMA annotation system will
be presented. The rest of the workshop will focus on gaining hands-on
experience with DIMA annotation and solving practical annotation issues.
If possible, bring your laptop.

As the number of participants is limited, please, state your interest to
participate by sending an e-mail to brigitte.krenn at ofai.at no later than
16th June. (Available places will be assigned on a first come first
serve basis.)

The workshop is supported by the CHIST-ERA HLU Project "Artificial
Language Understanding in Robots ATLANTIS".
