Subject: 9th International Phonology Meeting

 Ninth International Phonology Meeting
 "Structure and Melody"
 First announcement and call for papers
 1-3 November 2002, Vienna

The Ninth International Phonology Meeting will be held from 
1-3 November 2002 in Vienna, Austria. Like the previous 
meeting in 1996, it will have a general theme.
The choice of the theme "Structure and Melody" reflects the 
current concern of many phonologists about the relationship 
between prosody and syllable / foot / word structure on the 
one hand and the melodic content of segmental skeletal 
positions within those structures.

Topics
Under the general theme of "Structure and Melody" there will 
be 3 topics:
 1. Syllable structure and melody
 2. Prosody and melody
 3. Acoustic, cognitive and computational issues

The invited speakers are (alphabetically):
 Monik Charette, Grzegorz Dogil, Larry Hyman 
 Nancy Ritter, Grazyna Rowicka, P�ter Szigetv�ri

Papers
There will be 6 main papers by invited speakers (45 min. 
presentation and 15 min. discussion) and up to 30 section 
papers (20 min. presentation and 10 min. discussion), for 
which we invite the submission of abstracts. All papers will 
be plenary.

Abstracts
Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously. Please submit one 
non-anonymous max. one-page camera-ready original of your 
abstract for a 20-minute paper to the snailmail or email 
address given at the end of this announcement, and indicate 
which topic you are submitting for. Abstracts should be in 
Times (New) (Roman) 12pt, paper size A4, with all margins 
set to 1" (2.54 cm). Preferred electronic formats: MS Word 
(.doc or .rtf), PostScript or PDF. Please either use 
SILIPA93 phonetic fonts or save your document with the fonts 
embedded.

 Deadline for abstracts: 30th April 2002

The abstracts will be available via 
http://www.univie.ac.at/linguistics/conferences/phon02/ and in 
printed form at registration.

Workshops
We encourage afternoon / evening workshops or discussion 
groups on any phonological topic to be held on Sat. 2nd Nov. 
(only!). Workshops will be in complementary distribution. 
Please write or e-mail if you wish to organise one. 
Currently one workshop is planned, on The Phonology of 
African Languages (organised by Rose-Juliet Anyanwu & John 
Rennison).

Fee
The conference fee is 50 Euros (ca. U.S.$45), payable in cash, 
in Euros at registration (EUR 25 for students). The fee 
includes the abstracts volume, tea, (real) coffee & biscuits 
during breaks, drinks at registration on 31 Oct. and an 
evening reception with buffet on 1st or 2nd November. There 
is no pre-payment because of the horrendous banking charges.
