APAP 2017



Approaches to Phonology and Phonetics


APAP is an international biennial conference organized by two Polish universities:


Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin (UMCS)

John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin (KUL)


The conference intends to provide a forum for sharing theoretical, empirical and pedagogical findings on all aspects of phonetics and phonology, with particular attention paid to how the two domains of research relate to each other. Each conference has a leading theme which guarantees a focused debate and, as an outcome, a monographic publication of articles.


We invite proposals for papers and special sessions concerning the main theme as well as  other phonetic and phonological issues.


APAP 2017 will take place on 23-25 June, 2017 at UMCS Lublin, Poland.


Leading theme: “Empirical Evidence and its Theoretical Dimensions”


The following scholars have kindly agreed to deliver plenary talks:


Prof. Paul Boersma (University of Amsterdam)

Prof. Carlos Gussenhoven (Radboud University, Nijmegen)


Papers are given 20 minutes followed by 8 minutes for discussion. Abstracts of 250-400 words as well as thematic session proposals should be emailed to the organizers at the following address: apaplublin2017@gmail.com
