Meeting Description:

The International Child Phonology Conference (ICPC) 2012 will take place at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, June 4-6, 2012. The ICPC has met annually for over 30 years in the US and abroad. This year it returns to the part of the US where it originated: the Midwest. ICPC has evolved into a forum for talks, posters, and collegial discussions on all aspects of children's speech-sound development. ICPC is an annual conference on issues related to the phonological acquisition.

Call for Papers:

International Child Phonology Conference (ICPC) 2012
First call for papers 07 November 2012

Presentations from recent meetings have covered a broad range of topics, including clinical topics, computational modeling, the relationship between continuous phonetic variation and abstract phonological knowledge, implications for phonological theory, typical and atypical development in infants, toddlers and older children, second-language issues, and both oral and signed languages. This list is by no means exclusive: we invite proposals for talks and posters covering any aspect of children's speech-sound development.

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

An absolutely bare-bones skeleton of a conference Web site can be found at http://www.tc.umn.edu/~munso005/ChildPhonology/. It will be updated and beautified as the days and week progress. Please note that this Web site links to the program from the 2011 ICPC, and includes links to slides and posters from that conference. A visit to that part of the Web site should give potential attendees a sense of the conference's flavor.

Abstracts should be submitted via the Easy Chair Web site, https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icpc20120. Authors 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. Posters will be displayed in dedicated poster sessions that do not overlap with oral presentations. The final format of the presentation will be decided on by the committee. Abstracts should be 500 words long, with an additional page for references, examples, Figures, tables, and tableaux, if needed. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed anonymously and independently by three members of the scientific committee.

Key dates:

Abstract submission: January 15, 2012
Notification of outcome: February 1, 2012
Pre-registration begins: January 15, 2012
Program published on website: February 28, 2012

The conference will be held at the McNamara Alumni Center (http://www.mac-events.org/) on the University of Minnesota campus. Blocks of rooms will be reserved at three local hotels, one of which is mere parking lot's distance from McNamara, and one of which is in the heart of Minneapolis's vibrant downtown. The conference dinner will be a Thai food buffet held on the 35th floor of a residential building in downtown Minneapolis, featuring the best urban views (heck, the ONLY true urban views) that the upper Midwest has to offer. ICPC will be held immediately prior to two other conferences in the Upper Midwest. The following weekend, the International Society on Infant Studies will host its biennial conference in Minneapolis, and the Symposium for Research on Child Language Disorders will be held in Madison, Wisconsin, a mere four-hour drive or bus ride from Minneapolis. Individuals traveling long distances can maximize their trips by attending two conferences. Questions about ICPC 2012 should be directed to Benjamin Munson at munso005umn.edu
