Meeting URL: http://www.networds-esf.eu/

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Neurolinguistics; Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description:

The school offers a broad and intensive range of interdisciplinary courses on methodological and topical issues related to the architecture of the mental lexicon, its level of organisation, content and functioning, and a series of key-note lectures on recent advances in this area. Teachers and lectures, top scholars in their respective fields, will provide a cross-disciplinarily informed synthesis of a variety of topics and approaches, with a view to promoting interdisciplinary methods of research and assessment for grammar architecture and language physiology.

The school intends to target doctoral students and junior researchers from as diverse fields as Cognition, Computer Science, Brain Sciences and Linguistics, with a strong motivation to advance their awareness of theoretical, typological, psycholinguistic, computational and neuro-physiological aspects of word structure and processing. The school will be able to accept up to 80 participants.

Applicants will have to submit a pre-registration form, currently available on-line on the NetWordS website (www.networds-esf.eu) in the News page. Due to the limited number of participants the school can receive, the Organising Committee may not be able to accept all applications. Priority will be given to early applicants from ESF contributing countries. Confirmation of acceptance will be sent by March 15th. Registrations will be finalised after notification of acceptance.
