Meeting Description: The Phonetics and Phonology in Europe (PaPE) conference is an interdisciplinary forum bringing together researchers interested in all areas of phonetics and phonology, both theoretical and applied, with a special focus on Laboratory Phonology. The series covers a wide variety of topics, including tone and intonation, prosody, language acquisition, linguistic typology, phonological theory, speech production and speech perception, and methodologies from fields as diverse as psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics and speech technology.

The Cologne PaPE conference, scheduled for June 12-14 2017, complements this broad mission with a more specific scientific aim, namely to contribute towards a fundamental integration of the fields of phonetics and phonology, highlighting the intrinsic relationship between the two. Submissions in any area of phonetics and phonology are welcome with special consideration given to papers addressing the conference's integrative goal.
