Meeting Description: The Second St. Petersburg Winter Workshop on Experimental Studies of Speech and Language (Night Whites 2014) will be hosted by St. Petersburg University, Russia, on February 28 – March 1, 2014.

The workshop will consist of two keynote talks, around 20 invited oral presentations, and one or two poster sessions. The talks will focus on topics broadly defined as experimental studies of human language including (but not limited to) psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, cognitive neuroscience, computational modelling of linguistic processes, neuropsychology, and experimental phonetics. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers working on language for an event that will transcend disciplinary boundaries to give a snapshot of the current state-of-the-art in the field and encourage new contacts, ideas and collaborations.

The keynote lectures at the workshop will be given by:

Professor William Marslen-Wilson, University of Cambridge
Professor Martin Fischer, University of Potsdam
