LabPhon 13
The 13th Conference on Laboratory Phonology

Stuttgart, Germany, July 27-29, 2012

The overall theme of LabPhon 13 is “Phonological and phonetic computations: between grammar and neural activity”. This theme has been adopted from the research framework of the Priority Programme (SPP-1234) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). This Priority Programme seeks to connect research in phonology, phonetics, and adjacent psychological and neurosciences in Germany. It seeks to advance these disciplines through the joint pursuit of interdisciplinary research questions. The members of SPP-1234 invite you to participate in LabPhon 13 in Stuttgart.
