Keren Rice and Alexei Kochetov travelled to Japan to attend the International Conference on Phonetics and Phonology (ICPP) 2013 at the National Institute for Japanese Language and Linguistics, where Keren was an invited speaker. Keren gave a talk entitled "Sonorant obstruents revisited", and Alexei presented joint work with Yoonjung Kang entitled "When long is tense and tense is long: An EPG study of Japanese and Korean stops". Alumna Manami Hirayama (now teaching at Ritsumeikan University) also gave a talk entitled "Perception of accent contrasts in vowel devoicing in Japanese". Manami shares this photo of them enjoying a meal together after the conference.
