Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the 7th International Conference on English Pronunciation (EPIP7) will be held at the Université Grenoble-Alpes in Grenoble, France from May 18-20, 2022 (postponed from 2021). The conference will bring together researchers and teachers of English phonetics, phonology and EFL/ESL/EAP/ESP/EMI interested in the issues surrounding English pronunciation, both native and non-native.

Call for Papers:

We invite proposals in English on various aspects of research on English pronunciation, including (but not limited to) the following:
- L2 pronunciation research: methodology and application
- Teaching pronunciation (teacher training, teachers’ views and beliefs, etc.)
- Pedagogical implications of pronunciation research (goals, teaching methods, assessment, etc.)
- Applications of pronunciation research
- Information and communication technology in pronunciation teaching/learning
- Sociolinguistic aspects of accented speech and issues of identity
- Contrastive studies: interaction between L1 and L2 sound systems
- Phonological change
- Methodology of accent studies
- Norms and reference accents
- Native and non-native accents of English (acquisition, variability, etc.)
- Interdisciplinary approaches to ESL/EFL research
- Analyses of national or regional language policy

In 2022 we are also encouraging participants to attend the sister-event in French Accents: Perspectives Sociolinguistiques, organized by our colloques in sociolinguistics and French as a Foreign Language. This will be held the day before EPIP7 begins, followed by a special Thursday “mixed morning” round table in French and in English. Registration at one of the conferences gives participants access to the other with no additional fees.

Proposals presenting original, previously unpublished research are invited in these formats (please specify your preferred format in the abstract):
- oral presentation (total 30 min, 20 min presentation + 10 min discussion)
- poster presentation (open session)

Abstract submission guidelines will be available on the conference website before summer 2021 (

The deadline for abstract submission is January 10, 2022.
The abstracts will undergo an anonymous peer-review process. The authors will receive notification of acceptance by February 20, 2022.

**The web site is currently under construction, but will become active before summer 2021
