Meeting Description:

The Japanese Society for Language Sciences (JSLS) is pleased to announce our 15th Annual International Conference (JSLS2013). JSLS2013 will be held at Kwassui Women's University, Nagasaki, Japan. Kwassui Women's University is located in Nagasaki City, two hours from Fukuoka, the nearest major international airport.

The Japanese Society for Language Sciences aims to stimulate research in the language sciences based on natural language data, in areas such as language acquisition, psycholinguistics, discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, and to support the development of the language sciences through exchange between researchers. The scope of this endeavor covers a wide area, including linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics), first language acquisition, second language acquisition, psycholinguistics, language production, mother tongue education, foreign language instruction, natural language processing, brain science, bilingualism, sociolinguistics, discourse research, and linguistic philosophy, among others. This society hopes that researchers working on these widely diverse topics reach beyond their own areas of specialization by supporting the active exchange of opinions and ideas between researchers working in related fields.

Conference dates: June 28 (Friday) - June 30 (Sunday), 2013 (The conference will have a break in the morning of June 30 and will resume in the afternoon.)

Our plenary speakers will be:

James McClelland (Stanford University)
Ayumi Ueyama (Kyushu University)

JSLS2013 Conference Committee Chair:

Akihiro Kano (Kwassui Women's University, Japan)
