FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION -- MAY 1, 2002

The Third International Conference on the Mental Lexicon
Banff, Alberta, Canada
October 6-8, 2002


Hosted by the International Mental Lexicon Research Group


Sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada


The International Conference on the Mental Lexicon brings together
psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the
representation and processing of words in the mind. The conference
encourages the variety of perspectives on lexical representation and
processing and, in particular, clinical and computational submissions.

The 2002 conference will be held in Banff Alberta, Canada
(www.discoverbanff.com). Banff is a resort town in the Rocky Mountains
and is a 1.5 hour drive from Calgary, Alberta. The Conference will be
held at the Banff Centre, a conference facility that integrates
meeting rooms, hotel accommodation and daytime food services
(www.banffcentre.ab.ca).

The conference will take place over three days (October 6, 7, & 8,
2002). As in the previous two meetings (Edmonton 1998 & Montreal
2000), the conference will include both 15-minute platform
presentations and poster sessions on each day.

The conference is again hosted by the Mental Lexicon Research Group-
an international collaborative research initiative funded by the
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Past
meetings have each resulted in special issues of Brain and Language. A
third publication of peer-reviewed papers from the conference is again
planned for publication in 2003.

presentations. The revised deadline for receipt of abstracts is: May
