Meeting Description:

The Ninth International conference on the Mental Lexicon will take place from the morning of Sept. 30 to the evening of Oct. 2, 2014 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.

The conference brings together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain.

The invited speaker is Harald Baayen (University of Tüebingen).

This is the first time this conference travels to the Niagara region in Canada. Niagara-on-the-Lake is 20 kilometers from Niagara Falls, 60 kilometers from Buffalo, New York, and 120 kilometers from Toronto, Canada. It is served by two large airports: Toronto and Buffalo, as well as by Hamilton Airport. It is our hope that the natural beauty and history of this wine-making region and the comfort of the Georgian-style hotel venue will add to your enjoyment of the event.

Looking forward to seeing you in Niagara-on-the-Lake!

On behalf of the organizing committee,
Gary Libben
Victor Kuperman

Call for Papers:

We are currently accepting abstract submissions for platform and poster presentations. As in previous years, we anticipate an excellent selection of oral and poster presentations on topics that range from models of the lexical representation and processing in the mind and brain to neurolinguistic studies of lexical impairment.

The conference will include both 15-minute platform presentations and poster sessions on each day. The language of the conference is English.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is May 1, 2014. Acceptance letters will be e-mailed in late May 2014 following selection by the scientific advisory committee. The conference website provides additional information about abstract requirements.

As in previous years, a special journal issue resulting from the conference is planned.

The conference website is www.mental-lexicon-2014.com. Queries and questions can be emailed to mental.lexicon.2014gmail.com.
