LabPhon15: Speech Dynamics and Phonological Representation

July 13-16, 2016, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY USA


Abstract submission is now open for the 15th conference on Laboratory Phonology. LabPhon15 will feature oral sessions that are primarily thematic (see below) as well as poster sessions. Submissions on any aspect of laboratory phonology are welcome.


Student submissions are particularly encouraged. Reduced registration fees will be available for all students, and a number of student travel grants will be awarded.


The abstract submission deadline is midnight December 1, any time zone. All abstracts must be submitted through EasyChair (via the LabPhon15 website) between October 1 and December 1, 2015.

Thematic sessions


Production dynamics: How are representations constructed and implemented in speech, and what does articulation reveal about the dynamics of production mechanisms? How do these mechanisms shape representations on longer timescales?

Invited Speaker: Khalil Iskarous, University of Southern California
Invited Discussant: Elizabeth Zsiga, Georgetown University


Perceptual dynamics: What forms of perceptual representation do speaker-hearers use and what are the temporal dynamics of perception? How does the interaction between perception and production constrain phonological systems on life-span and diachronic timescales?

Invited Speaker: Meghan Sumner, Stanford University
Invited Discussant: Jennifer Hay, University of Canterbury


Prosodic organization: What are the mechanisms of prosodic organization and how do they give rise to cross-linguistic differences? What are the connections between perception and production of prosodic structure?

Invited Speaker: Yiya Chen, Leiden University
Invited Discussant: Martine Grice, University of Cologne


Lexical dynamics and memory: How do experience and lexical memory influence phonological representations? What are the relations between lexical representation, production, and perception across diverse timescales?

Invited Speaker: Matthew Goldrick, Northwestern University
Invited Discussant: Keith Johnson, University of California, Berkeley


Phonological acquisition and changes over the life-span: What is the nature of early representations and how do they change? How does learning a second-language interact with existing representations?

Invited Speaker: Sharon Goldwater, University of Edinburgh
Invited Discussant: Stefan Frisch, University of South Florida


Social network dynamics: How does the structure of social networks influence phonological representations on diverse timescales? What are the roles of perception and production in relation to social network dynamics?

Invited Speaker: Jane Stuart-Smith, University of Glasgow

Invited Discussant: Erik Thomas, North Carolina State University
