Speech variation in the wild

Phonetics and Phonology in Europe 2023

Welcome to the Phonetics and Phonology in Europe 2023. We are pleased to announce that PaPE 2023 will be held from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 June 2023 in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
PaPE 2023 is supported by Radboud’s Centre for Language Studies (CLS).

PaPE 2023 is the fifth conference of the PaPE series, following successful conferences in Barcelona (2021), Lecce (2019), Cologne (2017), and Cambridge (2015). PaPE is the successor of PaPI, a series of biennial Phonetics and Phonology in Iberia conferences which started in 2003.

PaPE is an interdisciplinary forum for research and on all areas of phonetics and phonology, promoting discussion of speech approached from multiple perspectives: neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics, computational linguistics and speech technologies.

The theme of PaPE 2023 is 'Speech Variation in the Wild'. We particularly welcome contributions dealing with the study of speech in its natural habitat: this includes the study of speech and language variation, bi/multilingual speech, and the use of natural data in studies of phonetics and phonology. Thematic papers may focus on theoretical or methodological ramifications of using natural speech. Non-thematic papers are also welcomed.

In addition to the main conference, we are inviting applications for satellite events which can take place on 1st and 5th June 2023.
