CALL FOR PAPERS French Phonology Network Meeting 2013 (RFP 2013)
After the conferences organized in Orléans 2010, Tours 2011 and
Paris 2012, the French Phonology Network (Réseau Français de
Phonologie) is launching a call for papers for a new meeting in
the same spirit that will take place in Nantes from July, 1st to
3rd, 2013 thanks to the LLing (EA3827, Université de Nantes),
FoReLL (Université de Poitiers) and MSH-Ange Guépin.

Invited speakers
* Phillip Backley (Tohoku Gakuin University, Sendai, Japon).
* Didier Demolin (GIPSA Grenoble / UMR 5216 , France).
* Andrew Nevins (University College London, Royaume-Uni)
* Bert Vaux (King's College Cambridge, Royaume-Uni).
* Sophie Wauquier (Université de Paris 8 / UMR 7023, France).
* Leo Wetzels (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Pays-Bas).

Main session Phonologists of every school or background are
warmly welcome to participate. Issues at stake may be in the
field of general phonology or of the phonological analysis of a
linguistic phenomenon of a specific language. Submissions that
will be taken into consideration will be those dealing with
signal processing, perception, acquisition, diachrony,
dialectology, formalism, epistemology and all issues which
explicitly file under the field of phonology and its interfaces.

Thematic sessions This year we'd like to draw your attention to
the fact that thematic sessions will be organized around
'Acquisition' and 'Harmony'.

Thematic session 1 : Acquisition This thematic session aims at
addressing the latest issues in the field of phonological
acquisition of a first or second language. It will bring forward
data which are unattested in adult's languages and challenge
phonological theories. Submissions dealing with any aspect/level
of phonological acquisition are welcome. They may be concerned
with minimal units in phonology (features, elements, segments),
the syllable, prosody, processes (in production or perception)
among other topics. Contributions may be couched in any
theoretical framework, and may be concerned with the acquisition
of a single language or adopt a cross-linguistic/typological

Thematic session 2 : Harmony Harmony is a wide-spread process
among the world's languages. It may be defined as a syntagmatic
change whereby a given segment absorbs some of the properties of
another segment in the same phonological domain. When it is
perceived as some kind of long-distance assimilation, harmony
-which may be local (strict contiguity) or extended to a given
domain (syllable, foot, word, phonological phrase)- may target
vowels (vowel harmony) or consonants (consonant harmony). If
locality seems to play a crucial role in its definition, harmony
is also sensitive to directionality. Intervening segments (within
the domain within which harmony applies) may prevent harmony to
take place or be transparent: are these really invisible or are
they somehow involved in the harmony process? Are harmony
processes due to phonetic (e.g. phonologization of a
coarticulation process) or to strictly phonological principles
(e.g. computation of a restricted set of principles)? This
thematic session aims at bringing together people who are
concerned with harmony in general phonology as well as with
harmonic relations in speech perception and production, prosody,
acquisition, development, the structuring of the lexicon,
automatic speech recognition and speech synthesis (this list, of
course, should not be interpreted as being exhaustive).

Submission format and selection Abstracts will be written either
in French or in English and will not exceed two pages in length,
(A4 format, Times font, size 12), including examples and
references, and will be submitted through Easychair:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rfp2013. The abstract
must be completely anonymous and do not contain any information
that identifies the authors. Submissions will then be forwarded
to two peers for assessment and the final selection will be
carried out by a board meeting.

Important dates
* Call for papers: December 15, 2012
* Deadline for submission: March 1st, 2013
* Notification of acceptance: April 15, 2013
* Conference: July 1st to 3rd, 2013.

Organization Talks will last 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes'
