Registration has closed

Registration closed on May 31, 2014 (midnight, Japan time).

The interest in LabPhon14 has exceeded all expectations. As a result, the number of participants who have registered during the early registration period will fill the conference venue to capacity.

Consequently, there will be NO late registration or on-site registration.

Registration Fees

Registration fees cover admission to the conference, conference kit, conference dinner, and coffee breaks. The fees for non-members also include a one-year membership fee for Laboratory Phonology (US$80 for students and US$125 for non-students), which, in turn, includes a subscription to the journal.

LabPhon members must have completed the payment of their annual membership fee for 2014 directly to the Association if they wish to register as members.

Those who register as a student are required to send their student ID (PDF) to immediately after completing the online registration.

So as not to exceed the capacity of the conference venue, registration will be limited to 200 participants. Registration is first come first served, so please register as soon as possible.

Participants who register in advance (either early or late) will also receive lunch each day of the conference. Unfortunately, lunches cannot be provided for participants who register on-site, since the lunches must be ordered several days in advance.

Cancellation policy: The Japanese financial system makes refunds very costly. For written cancellations received before July 15, 2014, we will refund the conference fee less JPY5,000 (about US$50) handling charges. After July 15 no refund is possible.

Visa Information for Participants from Abroad

The regulations for entering Japan as a visitor differ significantly depending on the country that issued your passport. For many countries, no visa is required to enter Japan as a tourist and stay up to 90 days. However, for many other countries, a visa is required even for a short stay. If you are not sure about whether you need a visa, please contact your nearest Japanese embassy or consulate.
