Call for Papers:

The overall theme for the conference is ‘Laboratory Phonology beyond the Laboratory: Quantitative Analyses of Speech Produced outside the Phonetics Laboratory’. Our goal is to bring together researchers from phonology, phonetics, and adjacent psycho- and neurosciences and to seek to advance these disciplines by encouraging the joint pursuit of interdisciplinary research questions. Specific topics that address this theme are the following:

Fieldwork-based studies, particularly on endangered languages/dialects
Corpus-based approaches to spontaneous speech
Acquisition of L1 phonology/prosody

Non-thematic sessions (both oral and poster) will include contributions to other topics of interest to the LabPhon community.

We plan to provide financial support for at least 30 student presenters (either oral or poster presentations). If you are a student and the sole or first author of a presentation, you are eligible. The money available will cover lodging expenses for up to four nights in Tokyo. We will not be able to help with transportation expenses.
