The 17th Conference on Laboratory Phonology will be held on July 6-8, 2020 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. LabPhon17 is co-hosted by the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. The biennial Conference on Laboratory Phonology is dedicated to the scientific study of all of the elements involved in spoken language, its organization, and its function.

Not every speaker, community, or data point is at the peak of a distribution. Many communities, individuals, and phenomena are on the tails. The theme of LabPhon17 is on these tails, these empirical phonological phenomena that are often understudied and overlooked in data collection and theoretical frameworks. Our phonological theories need to be informed by these understudied patterns, and we seek contributions to the conference that address these patterns and populations that are often left on the margins.
