Meeting Description:

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. Each year, the Academy of Aphasia hosts an annual meeting that highlights current research in the field.

Call for Papers:

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 (possibly from the same research group) reporting a unique approach to a timely topic.

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 should conform to a provided template (in Word) and may include a maximum of 500 words (excluding references) as well as one camera-ready figure plus one table.

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. Abstracts for those individual presentations will need to indicate the symposium they are affiliated with as part of the submissions process, in the Acknowledgments. 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, and to receive 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. 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, Academy of Aphasia members, authors of accepted papers, and the first authors of rejected papers will have preference if (virtual) space limitations restrict the number of registrants.

Submission procedures:
Abstracts must be submitted through EasyChair, via the following link:
