The goals of ICPhS are to present reports of recent research in as many areas of the Phonetic Sciences as possible and to provide a forum for the discussion of topics that are of current interest in an atmosphere that is conducive to a positive and constructive exchange of views.
The main focus of the conference will be on the section papers and the poster sessions. There will, however, also be a number of symposia.
The 16th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences will be held at Saarland University, Saarbrücken, from 6-10 August 2007. It is organized by a committee of German phoneticians.
The first call for papers will be made in May 2006. The deadline for full-paper submission to ICPhS 2007 Germany will be February 2007.
