Models of speech perception and production

Models of phonetic and phonological development

Modelling L1 versus L2 phonetic/phonological acquisition

Explaining the relationship between phonetics and phonology

Explaining the relationship between perception and production

We invite abstract submissions for twenty-minute talks or poster presentations on any of these modelling topics. We specially look forward to receiving submissions that compare different existing models and how specific data confirm or disconfirm them.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF format. All-inclusive abstract length is 1 A4 page, single-spaced and in 12 pt (10 pt for references). The abstract should include the title of the presentation and should be ANONYMOUS
