Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the final call for papers for the 4th Variation and Language Processing Conference (VALP4), to be held at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia from 23-25 January 2019, after successful previous conferences in the UK, New Zealand and the United States.

This conference provides a venue for researchers coming from traditionally distinct fields, such as sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive science, experimental phonetics, syntax and pragmatics, who work on the relationship between linguistic variation, in its widest sense, and language processing. We also encourage submissions dealing with the processing of linguistic and indexical variation by bilingual individuals, children, and the hearing-impaired population.

Plenary Speakers:

Distinguished Professor Katherine Demuth (Macquarie University, Australia)
Associate Professor Katie Drager (University of Hawai’i, USA)
Dr Lynn Clark (University of Canterbury, New Zealand)
