Meeting Description: 

Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia (PaPI) is an international
conference aiming to bring together researchers interested in all
areas of phonetics and phonology, with a special focus on the
relationship between the two. It will provide a new interdisciplinary
forum in Europe for discussion of phonetics and/or phonology and their
related areas - such as language acquisition, language variation and
change, speech pathology, and speech technology, the
phonology-phonetics interface, and laboratory phonology work. The
conference will be held every two years, hosted by an Iberian
university. The conference format is the following: a two-day meeting
including four oral sessions of 30 minutes presentations (plus 10
minutes discussion) of submitted papers, and two invited talks. There
will be no parallel sessions.

The first PaPI conference is hosted by the University of Lisbon in
June 11-12, 2003. The invited speakers of PaPI 2003 are: Elisabeth
Selkirk and John Kingston (University of Massachusetts).

**Call for Papers - Reminder**

PaPI 2003 welcomes the submission of abstracts on any area of
phonetics and phonology. In recent years, experimental approaches and
data evaluation have been crucial in the process of answering many
controversial issues within phonological theory. Studies in phonetics
that can significantly contribute to enhance our knowledge of
phonology and studies in phonology that crucially resort to phonetics
and corpora analysis are especially welcome. Preference will be given
to cross-linguistic comparisons and contributions on Iberian languages
and dialects.
