Meeting Description:

After the conference organized in Orléans in 2010, the Réseau Français de Phonologie (RFP) is launching a call for papers for a new meeting in the same spirit that will take place at Tours University from June 30 to July 2, 2011 thanks to two CNRS-based research agencies, the 'Institut de Linguistique Française' (ILF / FR 2393) and 'Typologie Universaux Linguistiques' (TUL / FR 2559).

Phonologists of every school or background are warmly welcome to participate. Issues at stake may be in the field of general phonology or of the phonological analysis of a linguistic phenomenon of a specific language.

We can now announce that we will have the pleasure to welcome as invited speakers:

- Ricardo Bermúdez-Otero, Manchester University
- Heather Goad, McGill University

2nd Call for Papers:

Submissions that will be taken into consideration will be those dealing with signal processing, perception, acquisition, diachrony, dialectology, formalism, epistemology and all issues which explicitly file under the field of phonology and its interfaces.

Submission Format and Selection Process:

Submission of communications will be written either in French or in English and sent in the form of an abstract which will not exceed two pages in length, (A4 format, Times font, size 12), that will be followed by essential bibliographic data, and will be sent to llluniv-tours.fr in the form of a word, latex or PDF file. The file will bear no mention of the author who will insert his name(s), details, address, research institution and communication title in a separate file. Submissions will then be forwarded to two peers for assessment and the final selection will be carried out by a board meeting.

Important Dates:

Abstracts must be received by March, 15, 2011 (new date)
Notification of acceptance by April, 30, 2011 (new date)

Conference Dates:

From Thursday, 30, June to Saturday, 2, July, 2011. The next conference organised by RFP will take place in Paris in June-July 2011.


Talks will last 30 minutes, and may be cut down to 20 minutes at the author's request (request which should be mentioned at the time of submission), and will be followed by 10 minutes' debate whatever the format chosen. Poster sessions have not been scheduled. Two guest speakers will start the day off and the end of the afternoon will be taken up by the general meeting of RFP.

Ideas for thematic sessions are welcome. We invite their organizers to provide the session with both a general title and a few lines description of potential issues, not forgetting a list of the colleagues who are likely to participate to the session and a brief summary of the theme that each one would develop. The assessment of the session proposals will take place at the conference board of referees final meeting after the proposals have been put forward by two referees.

The conference will not pay back any expenses, since the subscription fees only just cover functioning costs. No publishing has been scheduled up to now, but the matter will be further discussed during the conference.
