Location: Montreal, Canada
Begin: June 3, 2019
End: June 4, 2019
Submission Deadline: December 31, 2018
Abbreviation: AQL Montreal 2019

The International Conference on Advances in Quantitative Laryngology, Voice and Speech Research (AQL) provides a unique opportunity for partnership
and collaboration in the advancement of quantitative methods for the measurement and modelling of voice and speech. The AQL accomplishes this mandate by facilitating interprofessional scientific conference and training intended for an international community of otolaryngologists, speech-language pathologists and voice scientists. With a continued drive toward advancements in translational and clinical voice science, the AQL has rapidly expanded  over the past 20 years, from a forum of 15 European member-laboratories to a globally recognized symposium, connecting over 100 delegates from across the world.

Submission Guidelines

We will continue accepting submissions for podium or poster presentations until December 31, 2018. We will also accept submissions considered for poster only presentation until February 15, 2019. Arrangements will be made for the submission of full length papers for authors wishing to have their paper published in archival form.  The paper will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Applies Sciences (details will be provided in January 2019).
