Meeting Description:

The International Conference on Language Acquisition for Young Researchers 2014 (ICLAYR 2014) will be held at the Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa (CLUL) / Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa (FLUL), at June 27, 2014.

ICLAYR 2014 is the first edition of a graduate student international conference and it is organized by graduate students working on language acquisition at FLUL and CLUL.

The conference covers research on the fields of first and second language acquisition, heritage language acquisition, monolingual and bilingual acquisition, and typical and atypical acquisition of any language within a generative framework. In addition, the conference also covers work on processing.

Call for Papers:

The organizers of ICLAYR 2014 invite proposals in English for talks and/or posters from graduate student researchers at any level of graduate study. All proposals must be original (i.e., unpublished work) and submissions based on pilot studies, pre-dissertation studies, or work-in-progress projects will be considered on a pair with completed projects.

Talks will be 20 minutes long, followed by a 10-minute discussion period, and poster presentations will be displayed at an hour-long session, during which authors will stand by their posters to discuss their work. Please indicate in your submission whether you want your abstract to be considered for a talk, for a poster, or for both. At most one single-authored and one joint abstract (or two joint abstracts) per author will be considered.

The conference will focus on first and second language acquisition, heritage language acquisition, monolingual and bilingual acquisition, and typical and atypical acquisition in any language within a generative framework. In addition, the conference also covers work on processing.
