Gesture and Speech in Interaction (GESPIN) - Home

A- A+ Aa


After Poznan in Poland, Bielefeld in Germany and Tilburg in the Netherlands, the fourth edition of GESPIN will be held in Nantes, France, SEPTEMBER 2-4, 2015. GESPIN is an international conference on how gesture and speech work together to achieve various goals. This edition will focus especially on combined units of meaning in gesture and speech. The following issues may be of particular interest:

  • Mapping of units in different semiotic modes
  • Overlapping units
  • Affordances and relevance of different unit types
  • Multimodal models of cognition
  • Transliteration of units
  • Gesture and speech in development
  • Gesture and speech in dialogue
  • Multimodal language learning and teaching

Yet, papers on all other topics related to the combination of speech and gesture are welcome as well. We also invite proposals for tutorials and hands-on data sessions. Papers and tutorial reports will be published online (authors retain their copyrights).
