Meeting Description:

AMLaP is an international conference which has established itself as the
premier European venue for interdisciplinary research into how people
process language. The aim of the conference is to bring together
psychological, computational, and theoretical perspectives on the cognitive
mechanisms which underlie any aspect of human language processing.
Submissions which integrate experimental psycholinguistic evidence with
formal or computational models of psychological processes are especially

Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):

-Bilingual language processing
-Computational models, symbolic and connectionist
-Corpus-based studies and statistical mechanisms
-Cross-linguistic studies
-Dialogue processing
-Language production
-Lexical processing
-Learning mechanisms
-Models of acquisition
-Neurobiology of language processing
-Parsing and interpretation

Keynote Speakers:

Early registration will end July 30th.

Call For Papers

The deadline for submission of abstracts has been put back to Friday June
4th (midnight, BST).

Abstracts should be submitted as .pdf .doc or .docx files. PDF files are the
safest means of submission, as fonts and figures are more likely to be
preserved. Please remember that many applications include information
about the author in the metadata associated with the created file, and this
can potentially compromise the double-blind review process. You can
view/edit this by selecting from the application menu anything that reads
''Properties...'', ''Information...'', ''Inspector'', and so on.

The text should be no longer than 500 words including tables and figure
captions, but excluding bibliography. All the relevant information (text of the
abstract, figures, tables, references) should not exceed 1 page (A4 format).
Abstracts should not contain author information, addresses, or affiliations.
We are operating a double-blind review process (further details on the
submissions page, the link for which is below).

The abstract should, where possible, stress the novelty of the research, as
well as the findings. Reviewers will be asked to take novelty into account
when proposing oral presentations.
