Meeting Description:

We are delighted to announce a one-day conference on Second Language Acquisition of Phonology (SLP2012) to be held at the University of York, UK, on 6 July 2012. Our invited speakers are Rachel Hayes-Harb (University of Utah) and Paul Iverson (UCL).

Second language phonetics and phonology is a rapidly expanding field, with 20 articles published on 'second language' in the Journal of Phonetics in 2011 alone. Since there are relatively few dedicated conferences in this field, SLP2012 will provide a valuable opportunity for researchers to meet and discuss their work.

The conference will include a special session on acquisition of phonetics and phonology by English learners of other languages. Since the majority of research into second language phonology focuses on the acquisition of English, we would like to provide a forum for researchers working in the opposite direction to share their findings.

2nd Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited on any aspect of second language acquisition of phonetics or phonology. Papers considering English learners of other languages are especially welcome. Abstracts should be uploaded on or before 1 April 2012 to the SLP2012 page on the EasyAbstracts site:


You should use one of these formats for your abstract: pdf or Word (.doc but not .docx). Abstracts should be no longer than one side of A4 (or 'American letter'), with 2.5cm or one inch margins, single-spaced, and with a font size no smaller than 12pt. A second page may be used for examples, figures and references, if required.

Your abstract should be anonymous. You will be asked to submit a version with your name and affiliation on it if your abstract is selected for presentation. Please make sure that you do not use your name in the filename for your abstract, and please erase any details which might identify you in the file that you submit. Use one word from your abstract's title as the filename.

If you need to use a phonetic font in your abstract, please either embed it in a pdf file, or use the Doulos SIL font:


Abstracts will be considered for oral or poster presentations. However, if you wish only to be considered for a poster presentation, please indicate this when submitting your abstract. Oral presentations will be 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions.

Notification of acceptance will be made by 11 May 2012.
