Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the workshop entitled Multilingual Language Acquisition, Processing and Use which will be organised by the Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań on May 6-7, 2017. This workshop is the fifth in a series of successful meetings that took place in Stockholm (January 2009), Iowa City (June 2010) and Vitoria-Gasteiz (May 2012), Tromsø (March 2015). Its main goal is to bring together researchers who are interested in multilingual acquisition, processing and language use of a third (L3) language and whose work is carried out within a formalized theory of language.

The leitmotif of this year's workshop is ''Evidence in multilingual research'' and a number of invited speakers will approach this topic from different angles, including psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, linguistic and educational perspectives.

Keynote Speakers:

Kristin Lemhöfer (Centre for Cognition, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands)
Marit Kristine Westergaard (The Arctic University of Norway, NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway)
Joan C. Mora (Department of English and German, University of Barcelona, Spain)
Agnieszka Otwinowska-Kasztelanic (Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw, Poland)
Jorge González Alonso (University of Reading & UiT The Arctic University of Norway)
