GTM participates in the International Conference on Voice Physiology and Biomechanics 2020 (ICVPB 2020)

The International Conference on Voice Physiology and Biomechanics (ICVPB 2020) is one of the most important conferences on voice research. It was going to be held in Grenoble, France, in March 2020. However, it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, taking place finally from the 2nd of December 2020 to the 4th of December 2020 as an online event (

The researcher from the acoustics area of the GTM Dr. Marc Arnela attended that edition, presenting in the poster session a work performed in collaboration with Prof. Oriol Guasch and Dr. Arnau Pont. That work was focused on tuning 3D vocal tract geometries to modify their resonance frequencies (formants). Below is the 1min flash slide that was used to draw the audience’s attention to the virtual poster session.

More details can be found in the paper:

This research has been supported by the Agencia Estatal de Investigación (AEI) and FEDER, EU, through project GENIOVOX TEC2016-81107-P, and by URL project 2019-URL-Proj-067.
