Subject: Cognitive Neuroscience of Lang Workshop - Maryland Mayfest 2001

Every year, the Linguistics Department at the University of Maryland 
organizes MAYFEST, a workshop where speakers are invited to report on 
a variety of issues related to one theme.

This year our theme celebrates the department's recently enhanced 
Cognitive Neuroscience of Language laboratory. We will examine recent 
progress at attempts to bridge the study of language with studies of 
neuroscience and genetics.

Invited speakers and commentators include:

Rita Berndt
Martha Burton
Brian Byrne
Guinevere Eden
David Embick
Bob Frank
Greg Hickok
Edith Kaan
Barbara Landau
Alec Marantz
Colin Phillips
David Poeppel
Mabel Rice
Riitta Salmelin
Lokendra Shastri
Mark Steedman

The workshop will be held May 18-20, 2001, in Marie Mount Hall, on the
College Park campus of the University of Maryland.

We welcome visitors to the workshop. We will be charging a nominal
registration fee which is discounted if you register on or before May 1st.

If you plan to come and need hotel accomodations, please call and 
reserve hotel rooms well in advance-the workshop occurs the weekend 
before commencement.
