This interdisciplinary conference on multilingualism will be hosted by McGill University in Montreal.
The conference examines recent advances in our understanding of multilingualism, including simultaneous bilingualism, language learning mechanisms, transfer effects, sign language, brain plasticity and critical periods, focusing on current developments in this field. 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.
