OCP is an annual event gathering researchers specializing in phonology and related fields, interested in both theoretical and experimental issues. It was founded in 2003 by a group of linguists from the Leiden University Center for Linguistics and the Meertens Institute, and has since grown into an international forum attended by both senior and junior linguists. Since then, OCP has been hosted by different cities mainly in Europe: Warsaw, Verona, London, Düsseldorf, Budapest, Barcelona, Leiden, Istanbul, Berlin, Marrakech, Nice, Edinburgh, Toulouse, Rhodes, Budapest, Tromsø, Amsterdam and Leiden. The 18th Old World Conference on Phonology (OCP) will be held at the University of the Balearic Islands in the island of Eivissa from the 27th to the 30th of January 2021, hosted by the Department of Catalan Philology and General Linguistics of the University of the Balearic Islands and the lab Formal Structures of Language (SFL – UMR 7023) of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).
