Meeting Description:

The second PaPI conference will be hosted by the Universitat Aut�noma
de Barcelona in June 20-21, 2005. Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia
(PaPI) is an international conference aiming to bring together
researchers interested in all areas of phonetics and phonology, with a
special focus on the relationship between the two. It aims at
providing a new interdisciplinary forum in Europe for discussion of
phonetics and/or phonology and their related areas "such as language
acquisition, language variation and change, speech pathology, and
speech technology", the phonology-phonetics interface, and laboratory
phonology work. The conference is hosted every two years by an Iberian
university. The PaPI 2005 conference format will be the following: a
two-day meeting including four oral sessions of 20-minute
presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion) of submitted papers,
and three invited talks. The invited speakers of PaPI 2005 will be
Louis Goldstein (Haskins Laboratories and Yale University), D. Robert
Ladd (University of Edinburgh) and Daniel Recasens (Universitat
Autònoma de Barcelona and Institut d�Euro(tm)Estudis Catalans). As a
special event, the conference will host Expophonos 2005, an exhibit
about the development of phonetic sciences in Catalonia.

PAPI 2005 welcomes the submission of abstracts on any area of
phonetics and phonology. In recent years, experimental approaches and
data evaluation have been crucial in the process of answering many
controversial issues within phonological theory. Studies in phonetics
that can significantly contribute to enhance our knowledge of
phonology and studies in phonology that crucially resort to phonetics
and corpora analysis are especially welcome. Preference will be given
to cross-linguistic comparisons and descriptions of any language
variety and contributions on Romance languages and dialects.

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts should be written in English and not exceed one page for
text (including examples and figures) plus one page for references
(Times 12pt). The author's name, address, e-mail and affiliation
should be given in a separate document. Submissions should be sent
electronically (in Word or PDF format; PDF is required if the abstract
contains special fonts/symbols) to the following address:
