Meeting Description:

The overall theme for the conference is ‘Phonological and Phonetic Computations: Between Grammar and Neural Activity.’ Our goal is to bring together researchers from phonology, phonetics, and adjacent psycho- and neurosciences and to seek to advance these disciplines by encouraging the joint pursuit of interdisciplinary research questions. Specific topics that address this theme are the following:

Simulation as a Research Method in Laboratory Phonology

Invited speakers: Bruce Hayes (UCLA), Andrew Wedel (Univ. Arizona)
Invited moderator: Bernd Möbius (Saarland Univ.)

Computational Approaches to Sound Change: Data-driven and Model-driven

Invited speakers: Jonathan Harrington (LMU Munich), Paul Boersma (Univ. Amsterdam)
Invited moderator: John Coleman (Univ. Oxford)

Temporal Mechanisms in Neural Processing of Sounds and Prosodies

Invited speakers: Karsten Steinhauer (McGill Univ.), William Idsardi (Univ. Maryland)
Invited moderator: Carsten Eulitz (Univ. Konstanz)

Rich Memory for Rich Phonology

Invited speakers: Stephen Goldinger (Arizona State Univ.), Robert Port (Indiana Univ.)
Invited moderator: Holger Mitterer (MPI Nijmegen)

Non-thematic sessions (both oral and poster) will include contributions to other topics of interest to the LabPhon community.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are solicited for contributed papers for presentation as 20-minute oral contributions or as posters. Contributions relating to the conference themes are especially encouraged; there will also be sessions for non-thematic papers.

Abstracts are to be submitted as a PDF file at the following address:


Abstracts are anonymous. The author's name and affiliation should not appear in the PDF file. The maximum length for the abstract is two pages (one page for text, one page for references). This length restriction will be strictly enforced. Latex and Word document templates are available on the conference homepage under Submission. Please make sure that all special fonts and symbols are embedded in the PDF document and display properly.

One individual may be an author on no more than two submitted abstracts. All abstracts must be written in English. Presentations will be given in English. The abstracts will be evaluated anonymously by the scientific committee.

When completing the submission form, having first logged in at the website above, you will see a space which asks for a short summary to be typed in. This is not the place for your real abstract! Please enter a short statement (no more than 100 words) summarizing your paper. Further down the page is where you will upload your real abstract as an attachment (PDF file).

The submission form also asks you to identify which of the conference themes your paper relates to. If your paper does not relate to any of the themes, please select 'non-thematic'.

Authors whose papers are accepted will have the opportunity to submit an updated abstract for inclusion in the conference program. It is expected that the proceedings of this conference will be published as a special issue of the Laboratory Phonology journal; further details will be forthcoming.

If you have any questions concerning the submission procedure or you encounter any problems, please send an email to the following address:


Important Dates:

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 January 2012
Notification of acceptance: 31 March 2012
