Phonetic Sciences (Fonetiek)

In this beautiful 17th century canal house the Institute of Phonetic Sciences (IFA) was located until September 2006, now the Bungehuis (Spuistraat 210) is our home. The institute is part of the Department of Linguistics within the Faculty of Humanities. Louis Pols was a full professor in Phonetic Sciences at the University of Amsterdam since October 1982 and retired in April 2006. Under his supervision, so far 26 Ph.D. theses have been completed. His research concentrates on various fields of Phonetic Sciences. For many more details, see his personal website. He gave his farewell lecture on June 3rd, 2005 (see below), his successor since June 1st, 2005 is Paul Boersma.

Farewell Lecture June 3rd 2005

On June 3rd, 2005 Louis Pols gave his Farewell Lecture in the Aula of the University of Amsterdam. On that occasion he received the honorary medal of the University of Amsterdam out of the hands of the chairman of the Board of the University, dr. Sijbolt Noorda. The text of his lecture (in Dutch with summary sheets in English) is available as a pdf-file, just as the English translation.

ISCA medal, Sept. 2001

At the biennial international speech conference Eurospeech 2001 in Aalborg, Denmark, Louis Pols received the ISCA medal for scientific achievement from ISCA's President Roger Moore. ISCA is the International Speech Communication Association, which originated from ESCA (E for European), of which Louis Pols was one of the founders in 1988 and its second president (1993-1997). At Interspeech 2008 in Brisbane, Australia he was nominated ISCA Fellow.

Research Institute ACLC

This is the administrative research environment in which Louis Pols performs his research.
