Message 2: 4th International Mental Lexicon Conference

Subject: 4th International Mental Lexicon Conference


The Fourth International Conference on the Mental Lexicon, June
30-July 3, 2004. WINDSOR, ONTARIO, CANADA.

The Fourth International Conference on the Mental Lexicon brings
together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research
on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain. The
conference encourages a variety of perspectives on lexical
representation and processing. The language of the conference is

The 2004 meeting will be held in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Windsor is
a small border city approximately 3 hours from Toronto and 5 minutes
from Detroit, Michigan. The end of June is particularly lovely in this
garden city and there are numerous things to do in the evening on both
sides of the border.

The conference will be held at the University of Windsor's new
state-of-the-art conference centre with reasonably priced rooms
(breakfasts and lunches included). As in other years we anticipate an
excellent selection of top quality research talks and posters on
topics that range from computational models of lexical processing
through neurolinguistics. As in the previous three meetings (Edmonton 1998, Montreal 2000 & Banff, 2002), the
conference will include both 15-minute platform presentations and
poster sessions on each day. We are pleased to announce that in
addition to the submitted presentations Michael Turvey (University of
Connecticut) and Alec Marantz (MIT) will give invited talks.

Past meetings have each resulted in special issues of Brain and
Language . A fourth publication of
peer-reviewed papers from this conference is planned for publication
in 2005.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is on January 5,
2004. Acceptance letters will be e-mailed in the first week of
February following selection by the scientific committee consisting of
(Lori Buchanan, Gonia Jerama, Gary Libben, Deb Titone, and Lee
Wurm). Please send a one page abstract to
