3rd ICPP successfully finished!!

We had a wonderful conference thanks to the many people involved in it - speakers, chairs, discussants, poster presenters, volunteers and the enthusiastic audience.

Welcome to 3rd ICPP

We are very pleased to announce the 3rd International Conference on Phonetics and Phonology (3rd ICPP), to be held at the National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics (NINJAL) on December 20-22, 2013. This three-day conference is supported principally by NINJAL as one in its series of international symposia.

3rd ICPP features the following three main topics:

     (a) sokuon, or geminate consonants
     (b) accent and tone (special session on tonal change)
     (c) rendaku and voicing

We welcome poster presentations in these research areas, especially those that have a cross-linguistic and/or typological perspective. For details see CALL FOR PAPERS.
Oral presentations will be by invitation only. We will not be accepting abstracts for oral presentations.
