Call for Oral/Poster Presentations for the 34th General Meeting of PSJ

Dear Members of the Phonetics Society of Japan

The 34th General Meeting of PSJ scheduled to be held at Kobe Gakuin University on September 25th and 26th has been decided to be held online, due to the unpredictable future conditions related to the spread of the coronavirus infection. We will ask all participants to make a real-time presentation using Zoom. In addition, the presentation will be recorded and made available to PSJ members only for a certain period after the event.

In this way, you will also be able to participate from overseas or from remote areas if you can access the network on the days of the Meeting. Therefore, the deadline for presentation applications will be extended until Friday, July 10. It is a good opportunity for more members as well as non-members to participate than if it were held as a regular national convention. The 35th General Meeting in 2021 will be held at Kobe Gakuin University.
