PTLC2011 Proceedings

Although no separate PTLC conference took place in 2011, PTLC was linked instead with a Special Session at the International Congress of Phonetic Sciences in Hong Kong, August 17-21 2011, with the title "Phonetics Teaching and Learning: Recent Trends, New Directions". The ICPhS session was proposed and organised by Michael Ashby (University College London), Helen Fraser (University of New England), and Jose A. Mompean (University of Murcia, Spain).

In addition, further PTLC2011 papers were separately accepted for online publication.
