Meeting Description:

The third PaPI conference will be hosted by Universidade do Minho in June 25-26, 2007. Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia (PaPI) is an international conference aiming to bring together researchers interested in all areas of phonetics and phonology, with a special focus on the relationship between the two.

It aims at providing an interdisciplinary forum in Europe for discussion of phonetics and/or phonology and their related areas - such as language acquisition, language variation and change, speech pathology, and speech technology -, the phonology-phonetics interface, and laboratory phonology work.

The conference is hosted every two years by an Iberian university. The PaPI 2007 conference format will be the following: a two-day meeting including four oral sessions of 30 minutes presentations (plus 10 minutes discussion) of submitted papers, and two invited talks. The invited speakers of PaPI 2007 will be Mary Beckman (Ohio State University) and Elan Dresher (University of Toronto).

Following the main conference, two parallel workshops will be held: Transcription of Tone and Intonation in the Iberian languages, organized by Sónia Frota and Gorka Elordieta, with Carlos Gussenhoven (Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen) as invited speaker, and Mary Beckman (Ohio State University) and Jose Ignacio Hualde (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) as commentators.

Acquisition of Phonology and Clinical Linguistics, organized by Maria João Freitas and Marina Vigário, with Paula Fikkert (Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen) as invited speaker, and Elan Dresher (University of Toronto) as commentator.
