Tell me more about LabPhon17.

The Linguistics Departments at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University are hosting the 17th Conference on Laboratory Phonology in July 2020 at UBC in Vancouver, BC. The Association for Laboratory Phonology is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to the scientific study of all of the elements involved in spoken language, its organization, and its function. The theme of the 2020 conference is Laboratory Phonology on the Margins, which places our conference focus on empirical phonological phenomena that are often understudied and overlooked in data collection.

LabPhon attendees come from both academia and industry; attendees share an interest in research from theoretical and applied perspectives. Many attendees use or are interested in using cutting-edge technologies and methodologies in their scientific inquiries.

LabPhon 2020 will be held July 6-8 with satellite workshops on July 5 and 9. This will be the first of the LabPhon conferences held in Canada. Vancouver is a stunning tourist destination expected to attract attendees from North America, Asia, and Europe. We expect around 300 attendees for the 2020 conference.
