Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia
PaPI 2009 Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
The fourth PaPI conference will be hosted by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, from 17 to 18 June, 2009. Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia (PaPI) is an international conference aiming to bring together researchers interested in all areas of phonetics and phonology, with a special focus on the relationship between the two.
It aims at providing an interdisciplinary forum in Europe for discussion of phonetics and/or phonology and their related areas, such as language acquisition, language variation and change, speech pathology and speech technology, the phonology-phonetics interface, and laboratory phonology work.
The conference is hosted every two years by an Iberian university. The PaPI 2009 conference format will be the following: a two-day meeting including four oral sessions of twenty-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussion) of submitted papers, two poster sessions, and two invited talks. The invited speakers of PaPI 2009 will be John Harris (University College London) and Martine Grice (University of Cologne).
Following the main conference, two parallel workshops will be held.
