* This mentions only a few details – please consult the website for full information:

* There is no obligatory conference theme for the 26mfm – abstracts can be submitted on anything phonological.

* Abstracts should be uploaded to the 26mfm’s page on the EasyAbstracts site by 19th February 2018:

* Full papers will last around 25 minutes with around 5 minutes for questions, and there will be high-profile poster sessions lasting one and a half hours. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would be prepared to present your work either as a talk or a poster paper or only as a poster.

* We aim to finalise the programme, and to contact abstract-senders by mid to late March, and we will contact all those who have sent abstracts as soon as the decisions have been made.
