ICPC 2018 will be held on 18-20 June 2018 at the Great Arsenali Conference Center in the old Venetian Harbor in Chania, Crete, Greece.

The International Child Phonology Conference 2018 will host original research on all aspects of children's language development and use in L1, bilingualism, multilingualism, dialects, and early second language acquisition, in typical and atypical (delayed/disordered) contexts. ICPC encourages a multi- and inter-disciplinary approach across phonology, phonetics, relationships between phonological development and other aspects of language acquisition, production and perception, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, neurolinguistics, clinical phonetics and linguistics, sign language, acoustics, computational modelling, educational linguistics, and the application of new technologies. Theoretical, experimental, observational, and computational contributions are welcome. Oral presentations receive maximum exposure: one session at a time - no parallel sessions.
