Biennial Conference on Laboratory Phonology

The biennial Conference on Laboratory Phonology brings together researchers across the many relevant disciplines to present work on the phonological patterns and structures of natural languages. All oral paper sessions are plenary, and are organized to promote discussion across the disciplines. Each session groups together invited and submitted talks on a conference theme and ends with a talk by an invited discussant followed by an open discussion by the entire conference audience. Since the second conference in 1989, there have also been one or more poster sessions, which also are plenary, and there have been satellite events such as parasessions and workshops at some of the conferences as well.

Next Conference: LabPhon17

The 17th Conference on Laboratory Phonology will be held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, 6-8 July 2020. The theme will be "Laboratory Phonology on the Margins", and the conference will focus on communities, individuals, and phenomena that are understudied and overlooked in data collection and theoretical frameworks.
