6th CPLA Conference, The Netherlands: Call for Papers

    International Clinical Phonetics
    and Linguistics Association

    6th Annual Conference

    Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    October 13 - 15, 1997

    Second Announcement
    Call for Papers


During its brief history (since 1991) the ICPLA has established
a name via its scientific journal and the annual conferences,
which serve as a platform to update and discuss theoretical
developments and clinical issues. We are therefore pleased to
invite you at the:

    6th Annual Conference of the
    International Clinical Phonetics and Linguistics Association

which will take place in:
    Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    October 13 - 15, 1997.

The topics of the conference are related to language, speech, and
hearing disorders in both adults and children. This years' conference
continues the ICPLA-tradition to call for theoretical, methodological
and clinical papers in the field of linguistics and phonetics. In
addition, to counteract a bias in the series of conferences until now,
your attention is particularly asked for hearing loss --including
its consequences-- and speech perception. We like to encourage
participants to submit presentations on this topic. The programmed
keynote addresses reflect the above policy, and add some couleur locale
to the scope of topics.

Nijmegen is psycholinguistically a big city in a small country. We
will try our best to provide for proper conditions for a most
stimulating and fruitful conference.

Looking forward to meet you in October,
The Organizing Committee


    Collegezalen Complex, Zaal CC. 4 ; Mercatorpad 1,
    Nijmegen, The Netherlands

    The official language of the conference will be English.
