The International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS) is one of the largest and one of the earliest conferences for all aspects of phonetic research.

Usually held every four years there were 19 meetings since its inauguration in 1932. The 16th ICPhS in Saarbrücken was the first that made and maintained its proceedings online. With the financial support of the Max Mangold estate the Phonetics group at Saarland University in Saarbrücken have made the proceedings of earlier congresses available as searchable pdf documents. This project is meant as a complement to the digitisation of the ICPhS proceedings by the International Phonetic Association (IPA).
