Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the 4th Conference on Language Disorders in Greek to take place on September 28 and 29, 2012, at the Department of Speech and Language Therapy of the Technological Educational Institute of Patras, Greece.

The aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers working on a wide range of Developmental and Acquired Language Disorders. It also seeks to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art research in language pathology, explore new directions and emerging trends in Language Disorders, while focusing on Greek as the main empirical domain. Special emphasis is given on comparative work, either between Greek and some other language(s), or on bilingualism/multilingualism when one of the languages is Greek. Research on typical language development is also considered.

The meeting started eight years ago as an initiative of the Technological Educational Institute of Patras and now the University of Patras is joining, in a common effort to promote research on Language Disorders and create a forum where younger researchers working on Greek will interact and network with renowned scholars working on language impairments in Greek and beyond.

Invited Speakers:

Maria Kambanaros (University of Cyprus)
Cynthia Thompson (Northwestern University)
Ianthi-Maria Tsimpli (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)
Laurie Tuller (Université François-Rabelais, Tours)

Program Committee:

Dimitra Ioannou (Technological Educational Institute of Patras)
