The IPA is co-sponsoring the 1st International Conference on Tone and Intonation (TAI), to be held in Sonderborg, Denmark, 16-20 August 2020. IPA is offering up to five Awards. Applicants for these Awards must be (1) sole author or first and presenting author of an oral or poster presentation accepted by TAI, and (2) an eligible student member of the IPA: student member, unemployed member, member under age 35, or member from a low-income-level country. Applicants may join the IPA at the time of application, as long as the membership can be confirmed before an Award is made.

To apply for an Award, eligible members of the IPA should send to the Secretary (Gerry Docherty, secretary@internationalphoneticassociation.org) and to the Chair of the Conference Sponsorships and Student Awards Committee (Katerina Nicolaidis, knicol@enl.auth.gr) an email that states their name, current academic affiliation (if any), how they are eligible for an Award (student member, or other eligible category), and for student members, the name and email address of an academic supervisor. The email should be accompanied by the abstract that has been accepted for oral or poster presentation at TAI and by the confirmation of acceptance from the conference organizers. The deadline for applications is June 3, 2020. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Conference Sponsorships and Student Awards Committee and decisions will be made by June 18, 2020. For student members, the Award will cover the student early registration fee. For other eligible members, the Award will cover part of the regular early registration fee.
