Meeting Description: APAP is a new international biennial conference organized between two Polish universities:

Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, (UMCS)
John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, (KUL)

The conference intends to provide a forum for sharing theoretical, empirical and pedagogical findings on all aspects of phonetics and phonology, with particular attention paid to how the two domains of research relate to each other. Each conference has a leading theme which guarantees a focused debate and, as an outcome, a monographic publication of articles.

APAP 1 will take place on June 21-23, 2013 at UMCS Lublin, Poland.

Leading theme: ‘The Relation between Phonology and Phonetics’

The following scholars have kindly agreed to deliver plenary talks on the phonology-phonetics relations in different approaches:

John Coleman (Oxford University) - Laboratory Phonology
Haike Jacobs (Radboud University, Nijmegen) - Optimality Theory
Tobias Scheer (University of Nice) - Government Phonology
Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk (A.Mickiewicz University, Poznań) - Natural Phonology
