Meeting Description:

ESLP 2012 is the fifth event in a series founded in 2007. A first goal of the conference is to bring together researchers working on the interaction of language and visual/motor processing in embodied, situated, and language-for-action research traditions. A further focus is on uniting converging and complementary evidence from three different methods (behavioral, neuropsychological, and computational).

ESLP 2012 has a focus on embodiment in language learning. The extensive literature on embodied language processing is now in need of theories specifying how grounding takes place, and how and when grounding occurs in learning a language. How malleable are these non-linguistic system activations as a function of the task being conducted? How do these effects change over time? What role does grounding play in language evolution, and language learning in robots?

Keynote Speakers (confirmed so far):

Gerry Altmann, York University, UK
Bernard Hommel, University of Leiden, The Netherlands
Jesse Snedecker, Harvard University, USA
