Meeting Description:

Topic for 2017: ''Theoretical and applied methods for evaluating (a)typical language''

The Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Linguistic Theory aims at bringing together scholars from theoretical linguistics, cognitive studies, applied psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, clinical linguistics and educational studies. Especially over the last two decades, prominent trends within the individual fields have led to an increase of specialization, resulting in a never before seen diversity of methods and techniques. The theme of the first year's meeting ''Theoretical and Applied methods for evaluating (a)-typical language'' intends to promote communication among these disciplines by inviting research on the general methodology and tools used in accessing language development and language deviation. Special emphasis is given on evaluating (a)typical language and the theoretical insights to be gained from interdisciplinary research in this area.

The conference will be held October 6 (Friday) - 8 (Sunday) 2017, in Rethymnon, Crete (Greece).

Invited Speakers:

Naama Friedmann (Tel Aviv University)
Kleanthes Grohman (University of Cyprus)
Maria Kabanaros (Cyprus University of Technology)
