The second conference on Experimental and Theoretical Advances in Prosody (ETAP) is taking place this coming September 23-25 at McGill University in Montréal, Canada. A special focus of this year's ETAP is contextual influences on prosody. Examining the effects of context on the prosody of an utterance – for example, the context-dependent changes in the duration and prominence of different words or the grouping of words into larger prosodic/meaning units – provides a powerful tool for understanding syntactic, semantic, pragmatic and discourse-level factors and their interplay in language production and comprehension. This conference aims to bring together researchers and students from different fields working on these issues.

There will be 12 invited lecturers:

Jennifer Arnold (UNC Chapel Hill, Psychology)
Daniel Büring (Universität Wien, Linguistics)
Mara Breen (UMASS Amherst, Psychology)
Jason Brenier (Nuance)
Fernanda Ferreira (University of South Carolina)
Caroline Féry (Goethe Universität Frankfurt, Linguistics)
Julia Hirschberg (Columbia University, Computer Science)
Florian Jaeger (University of Rochester, Brain and Cognitive Sciences)
Aparna Nadig (McGill, School of Speech Communication and Disorders)
Caroline Palmer (McGill, Psychology)
Jesse Snedeker (Harvard University, Psychology)
Yi Xu (University College London, Department of Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences)

In addition, there will be 14 talks and 40 poster presentations, selected from the submitted abstracts after peer review.
