Meeting Description:

The 9th bi-annual conference on Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition ‒ North America (GALANA-9) will take place at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland on August 21-23, 2020. Although this is the first time that GALANA is hosted outside North America, it will still take place on the North American tectonic plate, where the University of Iceland campus is located.

The GALANA conference features theoretically informed research on all types of language acquisition scenarios, including (but not limited to) monolingual first language acquisition, bilingual/multilingual first language acquisition, second language acquisition by children as well as adults, third language acquisition, acquisition of signed as well as spoken languages, language disorders, language acquisition in the presence of cognitive impairment and autism, the development of pidgins and creoles, and language attrition.

The invited speakers for GALANA-9 are Nina Hyams, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Marit Westergaard, Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø (UiT), and Sudha Arunachalam, New York University (NYU).

Please indicate in the submission system if you want to be considered for an oral presentation, a poster presentation, or both.
