Meeting Description:

We are happy to announce that the next International Child Phonology Conference will take place at Memorial University, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, on June 24-26, 2015.

Following the conference’s tradition, there will be no invited speakers.

Call for Papers:

We invite proposals for oral and poster presentations covering any aspect of children’s phonological development. Topics include (but are not limited to) the first, early second language, and bilingual development of phonological systems and their relations to other aspects of the learner’s grammar, perceptual system, speech phonetics, or mental lexicon. We welcome proposals from any current theoretical and computational model of phonology and phonological development observed in either typical or protracted learners of either oral or signed languages.

Abstracts must be submitted via the EasyAbstract website:

Authors should indicate whether they prefer to deliver an oral presentation or a poster. Oral presentations will be allocated 30 minutes each (including a 10-minute period for discussion). Posters will be displayed in dedicated poster sessions that do not overlap with oral presentations. Please note that we will only accept a maximum of two papers per author: one as sole or lead author, and one as secondary author.

Abstracts should be maximally 500 words long, with an additional page for references, examples, tables, and tableaux, if needed. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed anonymously.

Abstract submission deadline: January 23, 2015
