Call for papers

We are seeking high-quality unpublished research in all areas of theoretical, experimental and computational phonology for presentation at the 2020 Annual Meeting on Phonology (AMP 2020). A tutorial on intonation will be held in conjunction with AMP 2020. Submissions to the main AMP conference which deal with intonation, phrasal phonology, and other areas of prosody are particularly encouraged.

The conference, which will take place September 18-20, 2020, will be hosted by the University of California, Santa Cruz, and held virtually, using the Zoom web conferencing platform, rather than in person. This is the eighth installment of the Annual Meetings on Phonology, following the 2013 inaugural meeting at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and subsequent meetings hosted by MIT, UBC/SFU, USC, NYU, UC San Diego and Stony Brook University.

Submission guidelines

We invite abstracts for either oral presentations (20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of discussion) or poster presentations.

Abstracts must be submitted in .pdf file format.
