OCP is an annual event gathering researchers specialising in phonology and related fields, interested in both theoretical and exprimental issues. It was founded in 2003 by a group of linguists from the Leiden University Center for Linguistics and the Meertens Institute, and has since grown into an international forum attended by both senior and junior linguists. The previous edition of the conference was held in Verona.
