First Call for Papers
- -------------------

You are invited to attend the Neurological Basis of Language
Conference (July, 9-11, 2001, Groningen, The Netherlands). The
conference aims to present an overview of how synthesis of
aphasiological, computational, and neuroimaging approaches has
advanced our understanding of the neurological basis of language.

Program
- -----

Keynote speakers for this conference are:

* Angela Friederici
* Michael Gazzaniga
* David Plaut
* Cathy Price
* Laurie Stowe

Other papers and posters will be based on reviewed abstracts. Deadline
for abstract submission: November 1, 2000. This deadline is relatively
early, so that you can make travel plans on time!

Submission Guidelines
- -------------------

Paper or poster presentations can be submitted using the abstract
submission form on our website http://www.let.rug.nl/nbl/abstract/

Abstracts should not exceed 400 words (references not included). 
Especially researchers who combine more than one methodology are
encouraged to submit their abstracts.

Don't consider the poster option a lesser choice! We plan three poster
sessions because posters allow active interactive discussion of new
results. We will structure the poster sessions so as to maximize
contact between researchers addressing the same topic from different
viewpoints.

Important Dates
- -------------

* Abstract Deadline: November 1, 2000
* Notification of Acceptance: January 10, 2001
* Early Registration Deadline: January 31, 2001
* Conference Dates: July 9-11, 2001

The submission and notification deadlines are well ahead of the
conference so that you will be able to make timely travel
arrangements. The conference is organized in conjunction with the
graduate summer school of the School of Behavioral and Cognitive
Neurosciences, University of Groningen. The summer offers other
advantages for the conference participants (no teaching, adding in a
bit of vacation, etc.), but making plans ahead of time becomes
necessary.

Who are the Organizers?
- ---------------------

The conference is being organized by the PIONIER Research Group on The
Neurological Basis of Language (Dept. of Linguistics, Faculty of Arts,
School of Behavioral and Cognitive Neurosciences, University of
Groningen) funded by the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research
(NWO), together with our colleagues from the School of Behavioral and
Cognitive Neurosciences.

We look forward to seeing you at our conference in the pleasant
environment of an old University town in the Northeast of the
Netherlands.
