Call for Papers

The organizing committee is pleased to announce the call for papers for the 20th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences which will take place on August 7–11, 2023, in Prague, Czech Republic.

Authors are invited to submit papers on original, unpublished research in the phonetic sciences. The theme of the Congress is “Intermingling Communities and Changing Cultures”. Papers related to this theme are especially encouraged, but we welcome papers related to any of the scientific areas.

Important dates

Submission portal opens: September 2022

Abstract submission deadline: December 1, 2022

Full-paper submission deadline: December 8, 2022

Paper decisions announced: February 28, 2023

Revisions due: April 10, 2023

Early registration deadline: May 5, 2023

Standard registration deadline: after May 5, 2023

Onsite registration: after July 31, 2023

Paper submission

We are inviting full paper submissions (four A4 pages, with an additional page for references) for oral or poster presentations and for publication in the Congress proceedings. Authors are encouraged to use the ICPhS templates to produce their papers – download the Word or LaTeX template. Details of the required paper format are provided in these templates. Papers must be submitted in PDF format. 

For the final Congress programme (which includes main and special sessions), there must be at least one unique author registration per paper; i.e., it must be the case that at least one of the authors for each paper is registered for the Congress and they are not also the only registered author for any other paper. In other words, every paper must be covered by a registration fee.

There is a two-stage submission process. The deadline for submitting the title and abstract is December 1, 2022, and these (as well as the authorship) cannot be changed afterwards. Authors may submit their full papers along with the abstract, but the submission portal will remain open until December 8, 2022, for uploading or revising the full paper. 


Submissions will be subject to a double-blind peer review process based on the full paper. Authors will be notified of the decisions regarding acceptance by February 28, 2023. 

The deadline for submitting the revised paper is April 10, 2023.
