Meeting Description:

The 10th International Symposium on the Acquisition of Second Language Speech (New Sounds
2022) will take place on 20-22 April 2022 at the University of Barcelona, Spain. New Sounds gathers
researchers from all over the world to discuss issues related to the learning and teaching of
second/foreign language (L2) phonetics and phonology.

The conference will cover a variety of topics:
- Speech perception and production
- Theories and models of L2 speech learning
- Phonetics and phonology in second language acquisition
- Acquisition of L2 phonology and phonotactics
- Multilingualism and the acquisition of additional languages
- Application of new technologies to pronunciation teaching and learning
- Sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, and neurolinguistic aspects of L2 speech learning

Keynote speakers:
- Ocke-Schwen Bohn (University of Aarhus, Denmark)
- Pilar Prieto (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona)
- Annie Tremblay (University of Kansas, U.S.)

In principle, we are planning for a regular in-person conference, but if the pandemic situation requires it, an on-line or a hybrid format (in-person and virtual) alternative may be adopted.

2nd Call for Papers:

Proposals for papers and posters related to the acquisition of second language speech are invited. Oral presentations will be 15 minutes each, followed by a 3-minute question-and-answer period. Poster sessions are scheduled for each of the three conference days.

Abstract Submission:

Abstracts should be written in English and not exceed 300 words (excluding title and references) and should be submitted through Easy Chair. Abstracts should ensure anonymity and should contain: a title, a clear and explicit statement of the question/s or issue to be examined, a statement of the relevant research context and key references, a clear statement of the methodology adopted (if applicable), a summary of the results and an assessment of their significance. Please use Times New Roman font, size 12, 1 inch margins and single spacing in an A4 page. Do not include author names or affiliations in the abstract, and submit as a property-free PDF file using author names separated by underscores as the file name (e.g., mora_cebrian_mora-plaza_gorba.pdf; file names will be anonymized by the organizers).

You will be prompted to indicate at least three keywords to characterize your submission, and to select between three and five topics from a list (you may use the keywords field to be more specific about your submission, or you may simply repeat the topics selected in the topics section). All abstracts will be peer-reviewed before acceptance. Authors may submit a maximum of three abstracts, only one of which can be first- or single-authored.

The deadline for abstract submission is November 1, 2021.
