The IPA is co-sponsoring LabPhon16, to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, June 19-22, 2018. IPA is offering up to five Awards of €150. Applicants for these Awards must be (1) sole author or first and presenting author of an oral or poster presentation accepted by LabPhon16, 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 LabPhon16 and by the confirmation of acceptance from the conference organizers. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2018. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Conference Sponsorships and Student Awards Committee and decisions will be made by April 25, 2018. 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.

New versions of our 2015 IPA charts in 3 fonts are now available here:


These new charts (dated 2016) provide different formats, resolutions, and sub-sections of the 2015 charts (i.e. the various options that have been available only for the 2005 chart). The current location for these files is temporary until a new, re-organized version of the Association’s chart pages becomes available.

Many thanks to Malgorzata Deron for making these charts for the Association.
