Message 3: Conference on aphasiology

Date: Fri, 31 Mar 1995 11:14:47 Conference on aphasiology
From: "H.C.J.Y.M. Perk" <>
Subject: Conference on aphasiology

 RuG-SAN-VKL Conference
 on aphasiology
 Groningen, The Netherlands

 17-19 May 1995

The accent of the conference will be on impairments to the various
language levels, that is, syntax, semantics and phonology. Within each
area, four papers will be presented by international, well-known
researchers, representing theoretical and clinical orientations.
Each topic will be followed by a discussion. These discussions will
focus on the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of the theories
presented. Neuro- anatomical aspects of language will be addressed in
an additional session, with three invited speakers.
Several workshops (up to 25 participants each) have been organised,
presented by speakers from the conference programme. The topics are
of interest to aphasiologists, speech therapists and theoretical
A poster session with a short introduction by the author followed by
a general discussion has been planned for Thursday night.

If you want to participate, please contact the e-mail address below
or send a short note.
We will then send you the official registration papers. Notice that
it is not possible to attend a workshop without participating in the

The fee for the conference is Dfl 400,=. This price includes coffee,
tea and lunches during three days and the proceedings with the texts
of most presentations, which will be sent to each participant after
the conference. The fee for the workshops is Dfl. 50,= each. The
maximum number of participants is 25 per workshop.

Travel directions
Many airline companies provide direct services from main ports all
over the world to Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport. A new
airline, Fairline, is starting a service between Schiphol and Eelde-
Groningen. Please consult your travel agency for information.
There is a direct InterCity rail link between Schiphol International
Airport and Groningen, with trains leaving at 5 minutes over the
hour. Travel time is approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes. There is
also a one-train-change connection at 35 minutes over the hour. A
one-way, 2nd class ticket costs Dfl. 50,=. InterCity services to
Groningen leave from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and Zwolle twice
every hour (travel times from Amsterdam and Rotterdam: 2h20; from
Utrecht: 2h; from Zwolle 1h).
If you travel from or via Germany, you may want to change trains at
Utrecht Central Station or Arnhem. The connection between Arnhem and
Zwolle takes about 1 hour.
There is also a direct (but slow) train link between Groningen and
Oldenburg, Germany.
If you are coming from the south (Belgium, France, etc), it is most
practical to switch trains at Rotterdam Central Station.
If you plan to come by car, please note that parking space is very
scarce and rather expensive in the city of Groningen.
