Pre-conference workshop: Practical introduction to mixed-effects modelling by Dale Barr on April 23, 2020

Symposium: Psycholinguistics of translation and interpreting organized by Yanping Dong

AMLaP Asia was created as the Asian venue for presenting and discussing research on cognitive, neuroscientific and computational mechanisms implicated in human language processing and learning. The first AMLaP Asia conference was successfully held in 2018 at Telangana, India.

We welcome submissions of empirical studies on all aspects of language processing and learning, including phonetics, phonology, lexicon, semantics, syntax and discourse; we also invite empirical studies on translation and interpreting as contributions to the symposium.

2nd Call for Papers:

This is a reminder that we are inviting abstracts for the conference.
Please use the following system ( ; to upload your abstract.
We understand that the current political situation in Hong Kong may concern some of you. We'd like to note that New Territories (where the conference is going to be) have so far been quite calm and the conference is going be held as planned. However, as your safety is our top priority, we will keep monitoring the situation. If the situation in Hong Kong worsens, we will have a backup plan to change the conference to a venue of convenience (e.g., Macau, a visa free place for many countries). We will make sure that the change, if necessary, will cause least inconvenience (e.g., in terms of visa and travel) to our attendees.

Best wishes,
Zhenguang Cai and Heeju Hwang
