Meeting Description:

The Aurora Center for Language Acquisition, Variation & Attrition (AcqVA Aurora) at UiT, The Arctic University of Norway is pleased to invite you to the 4th International Symposium on Bilingual and L2 Processing in Adults and Children (ISBPAC 2022) on August 4th and 5th, 2022.

ISBPAC aims to bring together researchers who investigate bi-/multilingualism from various disciplines, including linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, multimodal communication, and language pedagogy, addressing language acquisition and processing in any domain of language as well as the neurocognition and neurobiology of bi-multilingualism.

The keynote speakers are:
Gigi Luk, McGill University
Viorica Marian, Northwestern University
Eleonora Rossi, University of Florida
Zofia Wodniecka, Jagiellonian University

2nd Call for Papers:

The symposium welcomes submissions for all types of bi/multilinguals related to linguistic acquisition and processing and for studies examining the role bi/multilingualism plays in (neuro)cognition. This includes early and late bilinguals, L2 and Ln learners, all domains of language(syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, the lexicon and discourse/pragmatics, and their interfaces) and language related neurocognition, employing on-line (e.g. self-paced reading or listening, eye tracking, ERPs, neuroimaging techniques) and off-line methods. The topics are but not limited to:

- Morphological, syntactic, phonetic, phonological, lexical processing
- Crosslinguistic influence in bilingual speech production and comprehension
- Code-switching
- Cognitive consequences of bi-/multilingualism
- Language processing in attrition
- Implications of bi-/multilingual language processing for teaching
- Neuroscientific studies of bilingual processing
- Multimodal language and communication
