The aim of the conference is to continue the tradition of the TIE network in stimulating and coordinating cross-linguistic research on the grammatical role of tone and intonation.

The conference welcomes papers on the following topics:
- Typology of tone systems and of intonation
- The interaction between intonation and lexical tone
- The interaction between segments and tone or intonation
- Tonogenesis and other issues in the history of tonal systems
- The interaction of tone and intonation with information structure
- Experimental phonetic or psycholinguistic studies of tone and intonation

Papers will be chosen by the organizing committee on the basis of abstracts submitted. The final program is intended to represent a broad range of languages and also a broad range of approaches to this topic: phonetics, phonology, semantics, psycholinguistics, historical and comparative linguistics.

Important Dates:
Abstract submission deadline: 15 April 2006
Program finalized: 1 June 2006
