Meeting Description:

The special session on Language Pathology is related to research and applications in major aspects of language disorders as well as the development of methodologies and technical aids to promote language rehabilitation therapies. Language deficits are the predominant symptoms of many neurodegenerative conditions including Primary Progressive Aphasia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Parkinson’s disease. This session pays special attention to language and brain functions and related pathologies which may cause a variety of language disorders among different personal characteristics and different populations.

The special session on Language Pathology targets to bring together interdisciplinary specialists and promote novel experimental methods that can boost current screening and diagnostic approaches for testing and evaluating conditions affecting speech and language.

The session will promote prominent interdisciplinary approaches among different disciplines and research areas in the broad context and know-how of experimental linguistics and related experimental methodologies, from applied and clinical linguistics to neuroscience and natural language processing.

The session will host a keynote lecture on key aspects of the area along with a combination of oral and poster papers on diverse aspects of language pathology.
