Meeting Description:

After the conferences organized in Orléans in 2010 and Tours in 2011, the Réseau Français de Phonologie (RFP) is launching a call for papers for a new meeting in the same spirit that will take place in Paris from June 25 to 27, 2012 thanks to the CNRS and to Paris 3, Paris 7, Paris 8 and Paris 10 Universities.

Phonologists of every school or background are warmly welcome to participate. Issues at stake may be in the field of general phonology or of the phonological analysis of a linguistic phenomenon of a specific language. Submissions that will be taken into consideration will be those dealing with signal processing, perception, acquisition, diachrony, dialectology, formalism, epistemology and all issues which explicitly file under the field of phonology and its interfaces.

We will also have the pleasure to welcome as invited speakers:

Andrew Nevins (University College London)
Martine Grice (Institut für Linguistik Köln)
Larry Hyman (University of California Berkeley)
Charles Reiss (Concordia University)
Marie-Hélène Côté (Université d'Ottawa)

Call for Papers:

Submission Format and Selection Process:

Abstracts will be written either in French or in English and will not exceed two pages in length, (A4 format, Times font, size 12), including examples and references, and will be submitted through Easychair:


The abstract must be completely anonymous and do not contain any information that identifies the authors. Submissions will then be forwarded to two peers for assessment and the final selection will be carried out by a board meeting.

Important Dates:

Call for papers: December 15, 2011
Deadline for submission: February 15, 2012
Notification of acceptance: April 1, 2012
Conference: June 25 to 27, 2012


Talks will last 30 minutes, and may be cut down to 20 minutes at the author's request (request which should be mentioned at the time of submission), and will be followed by 10 minutes' debate whatever the format chosen. One of the guest speakers will start the day off and the end of the afternoon will be taken up by the general meeting of RFP.

Ideas for thematic sessions are welcome. We invite their organizers to provide the session with both a general title and a few lines description of potential issues, not forgetting a list of the colleagues who are likely to participate to the session and a brief summary of the theme that each one would develop. The assessment of the session proposals will take place at the conference board of referees final meeting after the proposals have been put forward by two referees.
