We are excited to announce the first interdisciplinary workshop on Phonology and Dyslexia that will be part of the Old World Conference on Phonology (OCP19). Here the neuro-cognitive study of Dyslexia will join forces with theoretical Phonology to address questions in the core of both disciplines:

- What aspects of phonological representations are affected in dyslexia?
- Can theoretical phonology provide experimental work with more fine-grained and theoretically motivated measures?
- How can theoretical phonology handle individual diverse or ‘unstable’ phonological representations?

What will the workshop include?

The workshop will feature a full day scientific programme, split into two parts - morning and afternoon - broken down by lunch and coffee breaks. Each session includes Slide Presentations from speakers with diverse scientific backgrounds, followed by a Keynote address and a Poster session.

We are planning for a hybrid conference: presentations are planned to be in person - but we will be streaming all lectures live and collecting questions in real time.
