One important goal of this conference is to facilitate and inspire the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas among researchers and students from different backgrounds and to promote collaborative research projects in the future.

Call for Papers:

Researchers in the areas of linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, neurolinguistics, speech language pathology and related fields are invited to submit abstracts that report on relevant work in the field of bilingualism and multilingualism.

Proposals regarding original research on bilingualism/multilingualism are invited in two formats: oral presentations (20 minutes) and posters.

The abstract should:

- be prepared in either 'Word' or 'PDF' format (*.doc, *.docx, *.pdf);
- be no longer than 300 words, plus title and references; and
