Meeting Description:

Call for poster abstracts

The second annual Rovereto Workshop on Bilingualism will be held September 28 - October 1 this year (2006) at the Laboratorio di Scienze Cognitive at the University of Trento in Rovereto (Italy). The goal for this annual workshop is to bridge the cognitive and neural perspectives on bilingual language processing and to foster discussion and productive collaborations between senior and junior researchers. The workshop differs from larger conferences insofar as there are only 10 speakers (all invited) and there are no concurrent talks. The topic for year's workshop is Bilingual Sentence Processing: Functional and Neural Perspectives.

A poster session is being organized for students, and young researchers to present their work. The present call for submissions refers to this poster session. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please submit your abstract (500 words maximum) online by June 1st, 2006 at http://www.unitn.it/events/bilingualism/. (The website will be ready after March 10th, 2006.) A limited number of posters will be accepted on the basis of their scientific merit. Although submission of posters related to the main topic of the workshop are encouraged, we will also consider any submission that deals with cognitive and/or neuropsychological aspects of bilingualism. For those individuals who do not have institutional support and who would benefit from financial assistance, a small number of travel grants funded by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto are available on a competitive basis. Please indicate in your submission if you would like your abstract to be considered as an application for a travel grant. The Workshop is funded in part by the CARITRO Foundation and the University of Trento.
