Meeting Description:

The Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences at Ghent University is
organising the Conference on Multilingualism from 11th September to 13th
September 2016 in the centre of historic Ghent, in Belgium. The call is now
open for oral and poster presentations.

The Conference on Multilingualism actually has a longstanding tradition. It
started in 2005 at the University of Trento under the name ‘Workshop on
Bilingualism’. Since then, the name has been changed a couple of times to
‘Neurobilingualism’ and ‘Workshop of Neurobilingualism’. This makes the
current conference the ninth edition of the gathering. We decided to continue
the tradition under the somewhat broader label of ‘Conference on
multilingualism’ in order to include different aspects of cognition and not
limit the scope to just bilingualism.

Invited speakers are Tamar H. Gollan (UC San Diego), Jon Andoni Duñabeitia
(BCBL), and Narly Golestani (University of Geneva).

Notifications of acceptance will be sent on 25th March 2016. Suitable topics
for presentation are all cognitive and educational aspects related to
bilingualism and multilingualism, including (but not limited to) language
processing, language acquisition, neurolinguistics, bilingualism and cognitive
control, education in a foreign language, and bilingualism and (working)
memory. Please indicate in your email whether you prefer a poster or oral
