Welcome to PaPE 2017!

PaPE 2017 was held from Monday 12 to Wednesday 14 June 2017 in Cologne, Germany.

We are pleased to announce that the next PaPE in 2019 will be held in June in Italy at the University of Salento, Lecce. It will be organised by the following consortium:
Cinzia Avesani, Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Techonologies, Padua
Barbara Gili Fivela, University of Salento, Lecce
MichElina Savino, University of Bari, Bari

The Phonetics and Phonology in Europe (PaPE) conference series is a forum that has the aim of exploring disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to all areas of phonetics and phonology, with a special focus on Laboratory Phonology. This includes both theoretical and applied research, and in particular the relationship between the two. The series covers a wide variety of topics including tone and intonation, phonological theory, audiovisual prosody and gesture, language development, linguistic typology, language pathology, and language teaching. Methodologically, the conference also aims at bridging the gap between the fields of phonetics and phonology and fields such as psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and computational linguistics.

PaPE 2017 is the second PaPE conference as such, following a highly successful first conference in Cambridge, UK, in June 2015. Prior to 2015, a series of biennial PaPI (Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia) conferences dates back to 2003.

Selected papers presented at PaPE and PaPI have been published as special issues of journals including Language and Speech, Phonetica and Laboratory Phonology, and of edited volumes by Mouton de Gruyter and John Benjamins.

Confirmed invited speakers:

Jonathan Barnes, Boston University, USA
Bettina Braun, Universität Konstanz, Germany
Mirjam Ernestus, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen, the Netherlands
Maria Josep Solé, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain
