 6th Annual Conference

 Nijmegen, The Netherlands
 October 13 - 15, 1997

 Second Announcement
 Call for Papers


During its brief history (since 1991) the ICPLA has established
a name via its scientific journal and the annual conferences, 
which serve as a platform to update and discuss theoretical 
developments and clinical issues. We are therefore pleased to 
invite you at the:

 6th Annual Conference of the 
 International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics Association

which will take place in:
 Nijmegen, The Netherlands
 October 13 - 15, 1997.

The topics of the conference are related to language, speech, and 
hearing disorders in both adults and children. This years' conference
continues the ICPLA-tradition to call for theoretical, methodological 
and clinical papers in the field of linguistics and phonetics. In
addition, to counteract a bias in the series of conferences until now, 
your attention is particularly asked for hearing loss --including 
its consequences-- and speech perception. We like to encourage
participants to submit presentations on this topic. The programmed
keynote addresses reflect the above policy, and add some couleur locale
to the scope of topics.

Nijmegen is psycholinguistically a big city in a small country. We
will try our best to provide for proper conditions for a most
stimulating and fruitful conference.

Looking forward to meet you in October,
The Organizing Committee


 Collegezalen Complex, Zaal CC. 4 ; Mercatorpad 1,
