Contributions on issues of French in contact with other languages are welcome as are any proposals on the phonetic description of French. This conference is part of the ongoing research activities of the international research project Phonologie du français contemporain (PFC).

We invite all those interested to submit a proposal of 100-150 words (for an oral presentation of 20 minutes in length followed by a 10 minute question period) before October 15th 2006 to the following address:
