< Old-World Conference in Phonology

Programme: Workshop and conference

Holland Dancers

The conference will be preceded by a workshop on the relationship between phonetics and phonology on 22 January. Everyone attending the conference is very welcome to attend the workshop too. The workshop, as well as the Leiden days of the conference, will take place in the Lipsius building (Cleveringaplaats 1, Leiden) in room 003. The 'Amsterdam day' (Friday) will take place at Meertens Instituut in Amsterdam.

Attention poster presenters: The poster boards are large enough for posters with size A0 (vertical) or A1 (both vertical and horizontal). A0 = 841 x 1189 mm, and A1 = 594 x 841 mm.
