Meeting Description:

The 55th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Aphasia will be held at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore, USA.

Academy of Aphasia:

The Academy of Aphasia is an organization made up of researchers who study the language problems of people who have neurological diseases. Some of these researchers also provide clinical services to help people improve their language skills following strokes or other illnesses. Although this web site is primarily for the service of members, we have provided a few links containing general information for people with aphasia.

Academy of Aphasia 55th Annual Meeting
November 5-7, 2017
Baltimore, Maryland, USA

The 55th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Aphasia will be held at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore, USA. The Academy of Aphasia welcomes submissions of original experimental, clinical, theoretical, and historical research from any field that contributes to the study of aphasia, including Speech-Language Pathology, Psychology, Neurology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, History, and Computational Modeling.

Presentation types. The annual meeting includes both platform and poster sessions.

Platform sessions include:

- Scientific papers—consisting of original research that has not yet been published.
- Symposia—consisting of a number of papers focusing on a common theme from researchers representing different laboratories. These papers may report on previously published research.
- Mini-Workshops—methodologically oriented sessions consisting of a number of papers reporting a unique approach to a timely topic. The authors of these papers may be from a single research group.

Poster sessions include:

- Scientific papers that can be presented primarily in a visual format.

The Academy considers poster sessions to be as scientifically meritorious as platform sessions. Poster sessions will not conflict with platform sessions.

Guidelines for abstract content. The submitted abstract should provide a concise statement of the problem or hypothesis, procedures and analyses conducted, results obtained, and final conclusion(s) drawn. Abstracts may include a maximum of 500 words (excluding references) as well as one camera-ready figure/table (in JPEG only). American Psychological Association (APA) format should be used for references. Submissions that do not meet these guidelines will not be reviewed.

Symposia and Mini-Workshops. In the case of symposia and mini-workshops, the organizer should submit an abstract summarizing the topic, including the names and affiliations of all the participants, and the titles of the other abstracts. In addition, an abstract should be submitted for each of the individual presentations. To help in the planning of the program, it is recommended that organizers of symposia and mini-workshops contact the chair of the Program Committee by e-mail ( about their plans to get feedback on organizational issues.

Authorship of submissions. More than one abstract may be submitted by an individual, but an individual can be listed as first author on only one submission. Both members and non-members of the Academy are encouraged to submit proposals for scientific papers, symposia and mini-workshops. Student papers must be co-authored by a member of the Academy. All submissions will be given equal consideration on the basis of their scientific merit and fitness for the Academy.

Conference participation. The meeting is open to anyone interested in attending. However, meeting space is limited, and Academy of Aphasia members, authors of accepted papers, and the first authors of rejected papers will have preference if space limitations restrict the number of registrants.
Submission procedures. Proposals must be submitted on-line at:
