We welcome submissions that address issues in the phonologies of spoken and/or signed languages. This is the sixth installment of the Annual Meetings on Phonology, following the 2013 inaugural meeting at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and subsequent meetings hosted by MIT, UBC/SFU, USC, and NYU.

This year’s conference features a workshop entitled “Methods in phonological data collection and analysis of underdocumented languages,” with associated tutorials and invited speakers. We are particularly interested in high-quality research submissions that address the workshop theme.
