2020 Many Paths to Language (MPaL) Workshop

We happily announce:
–       The MPaL 2020 abstract submission deadline is now extended until July 1st.
–       The workshop will take place fully online (talks, posters, and more) on Oct 23rd–25th as scheduled.
Further information on the workshop is copied below.https://www.mpi.nl/events/many-paths-language-mpal

This 3-day workshop will focus on meaningful differences in the way children acquire language. We will explore (a) multiple sources of variation in early language development, including: children’s linguistic and cultural environments, their cognitive maturation, and the structural properties of the languages they are learning, alongside (b) the implications of this variation for the mechanisms that drive and support early language development, given the overall robustness of learning in the face of this variability.

We invite abstracts covering any issue relating to variation in early language development. We especially encourage submissions focused on understudied populations, cross-linguistic and/or cross-cultural comparisons, and non-normative language development.

Keynote speakers:
Gabriella Vigliocco – University College London
Andrea Ravignani – MPI for Psycholinguistics
David Barner – University of California, San Diego
Call for Abstracts
Abstracts for talks and posters should be no more than 4000-characters and can include up to two figures and/or tables. Submission details can be found at https://www.mpi.nl/page/mpal-abstract-submission

Abstract submission deadline: July 1st, 2020Questions? Please contact us at mpal@mpi.nl

Workshop on Usage-based Phonology

We are pleased to welcome you to the first biennial Workshop on Usage-based Phonology (UsePhon; https://blogs.uoregon.edu/ublab/usephon/).

The workshop will take place on Zoom on July 5, 2020,
9 AM – 12 PM Pacific
10 AM – 1 PM Mountain
12 PM – 3 PM Eastern
5 PM – 8 PM Greenwich

UsePhon is a Satellite Workshop of the International Conference on Laboratory Phonology (https://labphon.org/labphon17) and will take place the day before the main conference.
Recent years have seen remarkable developments in usage-based phonology, including 1) the growth of diachronic corpora allowing for investigation of phonological change in real time, 2) increased sophistication of data analysis methods, 3) increased use of computational modeling for precise implementation of theoretical proposals, and 4) greater integration between usage-based linguistic theory and domain-general learning theory. As a result, the usage-based community has a wealth of new data to discuss and a range of computationally-implemented usage-based models of phonological change to explore. The primary aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are engaged in cutting-edge usage-based research on phonological change to identify the data patterns that need to be captured by any plausible model of phonological change, to discuss the independent motivations for alternative mechanisms of change, and to identify the gaps that need to be filled to differentiate among the plausible alternatives.
The workshop will consist of six invited talks and general discussion. Talks and discussion will be captioned.

Speaker line-up

GLOW 43 is a free virtual conference

There are no participation fees.

Inspired by other similar initiatives, and in particular the virtual implementation of CUNY 2020, we have decided to turn the conference online and virtualize GLOW 43 – the main colloquium, the poster session, and the workshops. This way,  we very much hope to give your work the outlet it deserves, and to offer an interactive event with much of the same content we have planned at present. While we probably all agree that an online conference experience will never replicate a face-to-face interaction, it is not difficult to find positive aspects to it: more accessibility, openness, carbon-neutrality and no participation fees. The scientific community probably has a lot to win in learning how to promote scientific exchanges through online platforms.

The 43rd Generative Linguistics in the Old World (GLOW) conference will take place (virtually) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin from April 8th to 20th, 2020.
In addition to the main session, there will be three thematic workshops:

For the main colloquium, which will include a poster session as well, scholars are invited to submit unpublished papers within all areas of generative linguistics. Submissions on phonological topics are especially welcome. The three workshops have their own topics and expect papers relating to them.


IMPRS Conference 2020 (no registration fee)

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.

This conference series is catered towards junior scientists (master’s & doctoral 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.

Workshop: Linguistic illusions in sentence processing

Dates: September 8th and 9th 2020
Call deadline: March 15th 2020
Location: Constance, Germany

Confirmed speakers: Markus Bader (U Frankfurt), Ian Cunnings (U Reading), Julie Franck (U Geneva), Colin Phillips (U Maryland)

Contact: anna.czypionka@uni-konstanz.de

We are very pleased to announce the workshop “Linguistic illusions in sentence processing”, hosted by the Research Unit “Questions at the Interfaces”, the project “The Multilingual Mind”, and the Centre for Multilingualism, to be held at the University of Constance (Germany), September 8th and 9th 2020.

This workshop will provide a platform bringing together researchers working on different linguistic illusions in sentence processing. We will discuss the interplay of different linguistic and nonlinguistic processes reflected in these illusions, and the wide array of diagnostics and tools used in this field. Our goal is to identify the overarching questions in the research of illusions, and to arrive at a more comprehensive understanding of the parallels and differences of the different phenomena currently subsumed under the umbrella term “linguistic illusions”.

We invite abstracts on psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic investigations of different linguistic illusions, for example attraction errors (number attraction, case attraction etc.) or intrusive licensing of negative or positive polarity items. We particularly welcome abstracts dealing with:

  • the interplay between different components of grammar in sentence processing
  • the connection between illusions in sentence processing and the theoretical background of the related phenomena
  • the role of memory retrieval in sentence processing, and its interplay with linguistic processing effects of illusion in bi-/multilinguals
  • comparisons of experimental outcomes and insights from modelling approaches

Abstracts should be one A4 page (12 pt, excluding references and linguistic examples) for 30 minute talks or posters, to be submitted to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lisp2020.

For more information, please see https://www.ling.uni-konstanz.de/illusions-2020

Hope to see you next year in Constance, and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, Anna Czypionka
