We had a wonderful conference thanks to the many people involved in it - speakers, chairs, discussants, poster presenters, volunteers and the enthusiastic audience.
We are very pleased to announce a NINJAL international conference on phonetics and phonology (ICPP 2011) to be held in Kyoto on December 10-14, 2011. This five-day conference is supported in most part by the National Institute for Japanese and Linguistics (NINJAL) and is held as an event in its series of international symposia.
ICPP 2011 features the following three main topics:
(a) rendaku voicing
(b) sokuon, or geminate consonants
(c) accent and tone
We would like to welcome oral and poster presentations in these research areas, especially those that have cross-linguistic and/or typological perspectives.

2. Voicing phenomena in other languages
1. Phonetics of geminate consonants
