Meeting Description:

Connect Malaysia (Connect’M) is an international and interdisciplinary conference that aims to bridge the gap between the multiple disciplines of linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, and education by connecting researchers from Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand in Malaysia, a multilingual and multicultural society.

Following the successful 1st Connect’M conference with the theme ‘Connecting Neuroscience and Evidence-based practices in clinical and non-clinical research’ and the 2nd Connect’M 2018 with the theme ‘Language & Literacy in Multilingual Societies’, Connect’M 2021 has the theme: ‘Bilingualism/Multilingualism across the lifespan'.

Connect’M 2021 will comprise three days of research presentations, thematic roundtables and knowledge transfer workshops.
