APAP is an international biennial conference organized by two Polish universities:


Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, (UMCS)

John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, (KUL)


The conference intends to provide a forum for sharing theoretical, empirical and pedagogical findings on all aspects of phonology and phonetics, with particular attention paid to how the two domains of research relate to each other. Each conference has a leading theme which guarantees a focused debate and, as an outcome, a monographic publication of articles.
