Meeting Description: The mfm is the UK's annual phonology conference, with an international set of organisers. It is held in late May every year in Manchester (central in the UK, and with excellent international transport connections). The meeting has become a key conference for phonologists from all over the world, where anyone who declares themselves to be interested in phonology can submit an abstract on anything phonological in any phonological framework. In an informal atmosphere, we discuss a broad range of topics, including the phonological description of languages, issues in phonological theory, aspects of phonological acquisition and implications of phonological change.

Special session: 'Typology and Phonological Theory', featuring (in alphabetical order):

- Birgit Alber (Universita di Verona)
- Juliette Blevins (Graduate Center, City University of New York)
- Mark Donohue (Australian National University)

Held at Hulme Hall, Manchester, England. Organised through a collaboration of phonologists at the University of Edinburgh, the University of Manchester, and elsewhere.

NB: there will also be a FRINGE workshop on the afternoon of Wednesday 24 May, timed to coincide with the mfm, organised by the Phonological Theory Agora.
