Speech Research is a Croatian scientific conference with international participation which allows the presentation of new scientific research and knowledge in the field of phonetics. Phonetic sciences are interdisciplinary by nature, so the conference provides an opportunity to gather experts and researchers from different disciplines. The main topic of this year’s conference is coarticulation and instrumental physiological techniques, and within the general phonetics orthoepy is especially highlighted. Papers covering other speech-related topics are equally welcome.

International collaboration and interdisciplinary approach make this conference important for advances in phonetics, but also for Croatian science in general. The Conference is organized by the Phonetics Section of the Croatian Philological Association, and the Department of Phonetics at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb. The first conference took place in 1984 (under the name Speech communications), and since the 2nd conference in 1995, the Speech Research conference is organized triennially. The conference takes place at The faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, Croatia (Ivana Lučića 3). The official languages are Croatian and English.

The conference is organized under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia, University of Zagreb and the City Assembly of the City of Zagreb.
