International Symposium on Applied Phonetics-ISAPh2020


We regret to inform you that, due to the worldwide disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to make the decision to cancel ISAPh 2020 and postpone it until 2021. We intend to hold the meeting on similar dates in September 2021. The exact new schedule will be announced shortly. We hope that you will still be able to attend the meeting under these new circumstances.

We are pleased to announce the 3rd International Symposium on Applied Phonetics, to be held at Universitat Rovira i Virgili, in Tarragona, Spain, September 7-9, 2020. ISAPh 2020 proudly follows up on the two previous meetings held in Nagoya (2016) and Aizuwakamatsu (2018), where a large number of researchers gathered to discuss a variety of aspects within the field of applied phonetics. Our mission is to continue to offer a specialized forum for the discussion of all areas of phonetic research with an applied component. While the main focus of the symposium continues to be how phonetic knowledge can guide the teaching and learning of foreign languages, we welcome contributions from other areas of applied phonetics such as sociophonetics, speech technology and pathology, language and accent coaching, forensic phonetics, etc.
