Northeast Computational Phonology Workshop (NECPHON)

Computational approaches to phonology investigate basic principles about how the sound systems in natural languages are represented, organized, learned, and change over time. The Northeast Computational Phonology Workshop (NECPhon) is an informal gathering of scholars interested in any aspect of computational phonology. Our goal is to provide a relaxed atmosphere where researchers can share their latest work.

The 2017 meetings is the 11th meeting of NECPHON. Information on past meetings can be found here:

This workshop is free of charge and lunch will be provided. 

Registration is required. Registration deadline: Monday, October 16th.
