Phonetics and Phonology in Denmark (PPDK) 2018

Date: 18th August 2018

Venue: Building 1485, room 123 in Nobelparken, Aarhus University.

Programme: here.

Book of abstracts: here.

Registration: here. Please register even if you’re presenting at the meeting, and preferably before 15 August.

The event is aimed to serve as a forum that will bring together researchers based in Denmark who are connected by a mutual interest in the sounds of language and speech. This includes phonetics and phonology, as well as research within related areas centred on speech sounds. The meeting will thus be open to a wide variety of topics (see the topics listed on the main page of this website to get an idea), and welcomes papers on any language, as well as theoretical and as applied aspects of phonetics and phonology, using various methodological approaches. The event is hosted by Aarhus University in the hope of sparking future cross-regional collaborations and a more close-knit Danish community of researchers working on the sounds of language and speech. The workshop is therefore open not only to established and early career academics but also to student researchers at BA and MA levels.

Students (both BA and MA) wishing to present work-in-progress can opt to do so through a poster presentation. Approximately 20 slots for poster presentations will be reserved for students. If you wish to present a poster, please indicate this during the submission progress.

The keynote speaker at the meeting will be Anne Fabricius (RUC) – click here to view her abstract.

The workshop will be free of charge.

Instructions for presenters:

Our preferred poster format is A0. Posters can be in either portrait or landscape orientation. Please let us know if you’d like to print your poster in Aarhus so that we can recommend you a printer. AU students will have their printing costs covered by the Department of Communication and Culture.

Talks will be 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions and discussion. You are very welcome to bring your own computer, but please bring the appropriate adaptors and test out your presentation in the break before your presentation slot.
