The 1st International Symposium on Applied Phonetics will be held in Nagoya, Japan,
on March 25-28,  2016.  Late March is the most beautiful season in Japan, with  cherry trees blooming
everywhere. Nagoya is famous for  many historical sites, including Nagoya Castle, the Tokugawa Museum,
the Atsuta Shrine, etc. Nagoya is located in the center of the Japanese archipelago and one of three major
cities.

Interest in the importance of speech communication has been growing in recent years, and phonetic
knowledge is essential in the teaching of any language. In our increasingly globalized society, educators
involved in teaching pronunciation have an important role to play, but many feel isolated and are uncertain
about what and how to teach. This symposium offers an unprecedented opportunity to raise questions,
discuss issues, and share information, in particular,
- to present research results and themes in phonetic education,
- to bring up issues and problems in relation to phonetic education,
- to report on phonetic education from your country or organization.

Necessary information is uploaded on HP from time to time. Please check(click)
