Linguistic Field(s): Psycholinguistics

Call Deadline: 02-Dec-2005

Meeting Description:

This annually occurring conference offers a program of invited and submitted papers and posters on theoretical, experimental, and computational research addressing various aspects of human sentence processing.

The 19th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing will be held at the Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York, hosted by the Ph.D. Program in Linguistics. Dates for the conference are March 23-25, 2006.

Abstracts are solicited for papers and posters presenting theoretical, experimental, and/or computational research on any aspect of human sentence processing. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, and will be considered both for the general conference sessions and for a special session under the theme ''Speech input, speech output''.

Accepted presentations will form a program made up of three days of spoken papers presented in plenary session, and three poster sessions (one on each day of the conference). Time constraints entail that fewer than 20% of accepted presentations can be given as talks at the podium. Therefore, reviewers will be asked to identify submissions that seem most likely to generate broad interest due to originality of ideas or significance to the field.

The submission deadline (Friday, December 2, 2005) applies to all submissions, paper or poster. Notifications concerning acceptance or rejection will be made by mid-January 2006.


The text of the abstract should be no longer than 500 words. You may also include examples, references and data summaries (but please, no data charts or diagrams). This additional material, taken together, should not exceed 15 lines of text.

Abstracts will be submitted electronically. The submissions system is presently under construction, but will be available soon at the conference website, i.e.,



A special session entitled ''Speech input, speech output'' will highlight developments in research on language processing that have become possible as a result of technical advances in analyzing, manipulating, and presenting speech signals. Many specific topics fall under this rubric, including (but not limited to) sentence-level studies that draw on spoken language corpora, that explore the benefits vs. complications of using speech input in brain-imaging or other methodologies, that focus on features of spontaneous production, e.g., colloquial usage, dysfluency, or that extend experimental paradigms to otherwise untapped populations, e.g., pre-literate children, low-literacy adults.
