- Input and language acquisition
- Spoken production and gestures
- Crosslinguistic comparisons
- Typical and atypical language development

The conference will consist of plenary lectures, paper sessions and poster sessions. The languages of the conference will be French and English. Selected conference papers, after a blind-review procedure, will be published in a journal or in an edited book.
