Meeting Description:

The study of implicit and explicit learning plays a central role in the cognitive sciences. The 2016 Implicit Learning Seminar will bring together leading researchers from a variety of backgrounds (cognitive psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, computer science) who share an interest in the cognitive and neural bases of implicit-statistical learning.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

- Carel ten Cate (Leiden University)
- Morten Christiansen (Cornell University)
- Axel Cleeremans (Université Libre de Bruxelles)
- Linda Smith (Indiana University)

For questions, please contact the organizers, Patrick Rebuschat and Padraic Monaghan, by emailing

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts on any topic related to implicit-statistical learning (e.g. role of attention and awareness, incidental vs. intentional exposure, cross-modal learning, individual differences), employing one or more of a variety of methods (artificial grammar learning, sequence learning, cross-situational learning, etc.). We would particularly like to encourage submissions that focus on the role of implicit-statistical learning in language. We envisage that the conference will be of interest to audiences recently attending the Fourth Implicit Learning Seminar (Krakow) and BCBL's conference on Interdisciplinary Advances in Statistical Learning (San Sebastian).

Abstracts for paper or poster presentations can be submitted between December 1, 2015, and March 1, 2016. Instructions on how to submit abstracts will be made available on our website in November.
