Meeting Description:

The XIIth Nordic Prosody conference will be held at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) from 10-12 August 2016. The conference will deal with prosodic phenomena mainly but not exclusively, in Nordic languages and in languages spoken around the Baltic Sea.

We invite you to submit papers on all aspects of prosodic research concerning Nordic languages and languages spoken around the Baltic Sea. We welcome papers on both phonetic and phonological analyses of prosody including (but not limited to) topics related to the production and perception of prosody, rhythm and intonation, prosody in speech synthesis and speech recognition, the semantics and pragmatics of prosody, the acquisition and teaching of prosody in L1 and L2, and cross-linguistic comparisons of prosody.

Abstracts should be submitted online via the conference website. Oral presentations are planned to last 20 min with 10min for questions and discussion. Abstracts should be in .pdf format. Formatting requirements are specified in the Word document that can be downloaded from the website. It is easiest to download the template and replace its contents with your own, keeping all of the formatting in place. All fonts should be embedded. More detailed information about the formatting requirements will be available on the conference website.
