The 26th annual conference of IAFPA was held in Split, Croatia on 09-12 July 2017. It boasted an amazing setting and a host of excellent papers, including the winning student paper from Elliott Land (Uni. Huddersfield) on recognition of voices by lay listeners using laughter.  Attendees were treated to a fantastic dinner and live music on the island of Brač, following a beautiful sunset boat journey.  Thanks to the organisers for such a rewarding conference.

The 2018 conference will be held in Huddersfield.
