Meeting Description:

The International Child Phonology Conference (ICPC) 2011 will take place
at the University of York, England, June 16-17, preceded by a one-day
workshop on cross-linguistic studies of phonetic and/or phonological
development, June 15. The ICPC has met annually for about 30 years,
originally in the Midwestern American states, as a forum for talks and
discussion on any aspect of children's phonological development.
Presentations deal with a broad range of topics, covering theoretical and
applied concerns, phonetics and phonology, typical and atypical
development, infants, toddlers and older children, and oral and signed

2nd Call For Papers

Deadline for abstracts: December 1, 2010

Main conference
We invite proposals for papers and posters covering any aspect of child
phonetics and/or phonology.

Pre-conference workshop on cross-linguistic projects on phonetic and/or
phonological development
We invite submissions for oral presentations reporting on goals, methods
and findings of collaborative cross-linguistic projects on phonetic and/or
phonological development. We welcome either one or two talks per project;
where two talks (and speakers) are planned, one should focus on the
theoretical or practical motivation for the project and the other on presenting
comparative data. No more than two abstracts should be submitted from
any one project. Talks will be 30-45 minutes long, depending on the number
of submissions. Talks which cannot be fitted into the workshop due to time
limitations will be considered for the main conference.

Following the child phonology conference tradition, we will have no invited

Abstracts will be peer-reviewed anonymously by members of the organizing

Conference website

Abstracts for both the main conference and the workshop (up to 300 words
per presentation) should be submitted directly to the conference website
(now accessible). Authors submitting to the main conference should indicate
whether they prefer to present an oral paper or a poster. Oral presentations
will be allocated a 30-minute slot each, to include a 5-10 minute discussion.
The final format of the presentation will be decided on by the committee.

Abstract submission deadline: December 1, 2010
Notification of outcome: January 15, 2011

Some rooms will be available on campus, but we expect that most

to campus or a 30-minute walk, typically). There are links on the website to
help you explore accommodation options.
