Deadline for Early Registration
- -----------------------------

The registration deadline, February 7, is 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
