The French Phonology Network (Réseau français de phonologie) is launching a call for papers for its 2017 annual conference. Building on the success of the previous conferences organized in Orléans (2010), Tours (2011), Paris (2012), Nantes (2013), Lille (2014), Bordeaux (2015) and Nice (2016), the 2017 edition will be organized by GIPSA-lab and will take place from 5 to 7 July at the Grenoble Alpes University, France.

Main session

Submissions from any school or theoretical framework of phonology are welcome. Topics of interest may relate to phonology in general or in specific language, in synchronic or in diachronic dimensions. Issues focusing on phonology and its interfaces, epistemology, descriptive phonology, experimental phonology,  phonological modeling or formalism are awaited.

Thematic session
This year's conference, we especially encourage submissions focusing on the two following topics:

    Multi-level approach of the phonology-phonetic interface and / or description of minority languages, dialects, spatial variation, phonological changes, language and sound system typologies;
    Development and acquisition of phonological representations.
