The IMPRS Conference: Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Language Sciences is an international, three-day conference organised by the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Language Sciences. It will take place from June 3 – 5 2020, now in a virtual format!
The IMPRS Conference is catered towards junior scientists (master’s & PhD students) and aims to inspire the next generation of language scientists to take on new challenges that will further our understanding of the human language ability. More senior researchers are welcome to register and submit a poster, but junior researchers will be prioritized.
In this year’s edition, we will focus on two themes (Language Disorders and Memory & Learning) and explore them from multiple viewpoints, such as genetics, psychology, (neuro)biology, linguistics and computer science. Alongside the keynotes, short talks and discussion sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to present their own work during the poster sessions. Furthermore, we will also have various workshops on soft skills, research methods and data analysis on offer.
The conference will now be hosted completely virtually, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Please bear in mind that the schedule might change to accommodate the virtual format. More information on the virtual format can be found here.
