Meeting Description:

The International Association for Forensic Phonetics and Acoustics (IAFPA) is the professional association for forensic scientists and researchers who analyse voices, speech and audio recordings.

The organisation seeks to foster research and provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and information on practice, development and research in forensic phonetics and acoustics, and to set down and enforce standards of professional conduct and procedure for those involved in forensic phonetic and acoustic casework – members are therefore bound by a Code of Practice.

IAFPA was formally established in York, England, in 1991 with the name The International Association for Forensic Phonetics (IAFP). Since then, IAFP has grown to over 120 members worldwide, with expertise spanning both forensic phonetics and acoustics (hence the addition of the latter ‘A’ to IAFPA).

Each year, the association and its members organize an international conference. This year's conference is organized by the Phonetics Research Group of the Philipps-University Marburg in Germany. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this conference is a completely digital conference and will take place from August 22 to August 25. Abstract proposals (see call below) are welcome!

Call for Papers:

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

- Full papers: Oral presentation of a research topic or empirical data related to forensic phonetics

For initial submission, enter the abstract text into the form provided by Easychair. You can make changes later. For the abstract booklet, we invite you to submit formatted abstracts. Details will be made available to you after initial submission. Please indicate at the very beginning of your text whether your abstract is for a full paper, poster, or work-in-progress poster by typing in the form: Full paper:, Poster:, Work-in-progress poster:, respectively.
