Meeting Description:

The next IASCL congress will be held in Montreal, Canada on 19-23 July 2011.

The planned location for the conference is the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), located in the city’s urban core. The general theme of the congress is Social, Genetic and Cognitive Determinants in the Acquisition and Development of Child Language. General information can be found at http://www.iascl2011.org, where you will find details about the venue of the conference and accommodation.

A few more weeks and we'll have the pleasure of welcoming all of you in Montreal. The scientific program of this 12th IASCL meeting offers rich and varied presentations on many aspects of language acquisition and performance. There are 62 symposia and close to 360 posters that will be offered to the participants, promising exciting and scintillating discussions. This year, in addition to our distinguished invited speakers, we'll also be treated to four oral student presentations on the last day of the conference.

There will be a cocktail reception on the opening evening, followed by the first guest lecture (Prof. Fred Genesee, Mc Gill University). There is now an almost final schedule of symposium and poster sessions for your perusal. If you are a presenter (symposium or poster), please, check that you are correctly listed in the program.

Preliminary program schedule:

As you will note, there are 7-8 symposium presentations during each session. We have made an effort to avoid parallel presentations dealing with similar or closely related topics. However, we have received a large number of requests (from nearly every symposium convener:-) that constrain the symposium schedule. We are still working on answering every request -- so, expect a couple of changes within the next few days.

This IASCL congress will also provide a great opportunity to meet with colleagues, students and reinforce or develop networks, as we are expecting around 600 participants. I invite you to visit the conference web site and learn about the conference venue, as well as important details about city life around the university and in Montreal. As you may know, the city is abuzz with festivals and we'll be, literally, in the midst of several popular events.

I hope that you are as excited as I am about this coming meeting. We are all very much looking forward to welcoming you in Montreal, this July.

Henri Cohen
