Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the first International Workshop on Bilingualism and Cognitive Control to take place on May 15-17, 2013, in Krakow, Poland. The workshop will be hosted at the Jagiellonian University Guesthouse (http://www.dg.uj.edu.pl/przegorzaly). Located in the beautiful Wolski Woods about 5 km from the center of Krakow, it is an ideal place to discuss our research and build new collaborations. The guesthouse is also able to host families, and we will be providing on-site childcare.

Invited Speakers (confirmed):

Teresa Bajo (University Granada, Spain)
Ellen Bialystok (University of Toronto, Canada)
David W. Green (University College London, UK)
Judith F. Kroll (The Pennsylvania State University, USA)
Viorica Marian (Northwestern University, USA)

The meeting is locally organized by the The Language and Bilingualism Lab at Jagiellonian University (http://langusta.edu.pl/en), directed by Zofia Wodniecka.

2nd Call for Papers:

The deadline for submission of abstracts to the International Workshop on Bilingualism and Cognitive Control has been extended to February 1, 2013.

Submissions are being sought on the topics of bilingual language control and bilingual cognitive control, broadly construed. Submissions that draw links between these two areas are especially welcomed. The reported project may be completed or it may be in progress. The workshop has been structured to maximize interactions between scientists, and so most submissions will be considered for poster sessions, which will form an integral part of the workshop. A limited number of submissions will also be invited as oral presentations. Please contact the conference organizers for space availability if you are interested in attending but will not be presenting by emailing blccworkshopgmail.com with a brief letter of interest.
