Meeting Description:

The Psycholinguistic Representation of Tone (PLRT) conference will be held in Hong Kong on August 22-23, 2011, as a satellite of the International Congress on Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS; Hong Kong, August 17-21, 2011). The conference will identify a worldwide network of researchers and laboratories actively conducting advanced research on tone, and will be held in Hong Kong, at the centre of an area in which a large proportion of the world’s tone languages are spoken. We hope to attract researchers from linguistics, phonetics, speech science, psychology, engineering, speech pathology, and having the conference as a satellite to ICPhS will enhance accessibility and delegates’ access to home-institution conference funding.

The aims of this conference are to:

(a) Promote research on tone, a distinct but relatively neglected aspect of speech;
(b) Explore research issues raised especially by tones, e.g., tone vs. intonation, lexical tone vs. musical pitch, left vs. right hemisphere processing, amusia and aphasia; and
(c) Facilitate information transfer and collaboration between researchers from diverse areas, e.g., psychology, neuroscience, music cognition, phonetics and phonology, engineering and computer science.

Call for Papers:

1-page or 4-page papers can be submitted for either oral or poster presentation. Details on the format of submissions can found by downloading the file available at our website:


Please email submissions to plrt2011lancaster.ac.uk by April 15, 2011.
