Message 2: symposium on interpreting and language processing

From: Sarah Williams <>
Subject: symposium on interpreting and language processing
Stockholm University
21-22 February, 1997

There will be a two day symposium on "Language Processing and
Interpreting" at Stockholm University, 21-22 February 1997.

The aim of the symposium is to engage the interest of researchers
within the areas of psychology, linguistics, psycholinguistics and
neurolinguistics in a focus on the processes involved in simultaneous
interpreting. The theme of the symposium is twofold: to see how
theories and methodology from various disciplines could be fruitfully
applied to the study of simultaneous interpreting, and conversely, to
suggest ways in which the study of simultaneous interpreting might
contribute to knowledge in these areas. Established researchers from
various disciplines have been invited to give a paper from their own
research perspective. Areas we seek to cover in the symposium are:
working memory, speech perception and production, bilingualism, second
language research and neurolinguistics. These will then be
complemented with selected papers by researchers from within
interpreting research, a display of posters of ongoing research in
simultaneous interpreting and a final round table.

Speakers will include: Alan Baddeley (working memory), Kees de Bot
(bilingual speech production), Daniel Gile (interpreting research),
Kenneth Hyltenstam (bilingualism and code-switching), Bj=F6rn Lindblom
(speech perception), Bob McAllister (L1 and L2 perception), Barbara
Moser-Mercer (interpreting research), Michel Paradis
(neurolinguistics), Michael Sharwood-Smith (second language research).

If you would like further information, please send us the information
below by October 15th 1996. A circular, including a final program and
list of posters, will be sent out to all interested participants in
November. Participants will be required to arrange their own
accommodation. The registration fee is: 500 SEK (students: 300
SEK). The fee includes morning and afternoon tea and coffee and a
reception on Friday evening, and is payable by January 20th
1997. Participants who are engaged in research on simultaneous
interpreting are invited to display a poster of their work. Posters
will be displayed in the foyer during the symposium. Please indicate
if you wish to display a poster and send a short abstract (max 200
words) by October 15th 1996.=20
