Meeting Description:

Annual workshop on the functional and neural perspectives of bilingualism

The first annual Rovereto Workshop on Bilingualism will be held October 13-16
this year at the Laboratorio di Scienze Cognitive at the University of Trento in
Rovereto (Italy). The goal for this annual workshop is to bridge the cognitive
and neural perspectives on bilingual language processing and to foster
discussion and productive collaborations between senior and junior researchers.
The workshop will differ from larger conferences insofar as there will only be
10 speakers (all invited) and there will be no concurrent talks. The invited
speakers for this inaugural meeting are: Jubin Abutalebi, Karen Emmorey,
Matthew Finkbeiner, David Green, Judith Kroll, Andrea Mechelli, Lee Osterhout,
Christophe Pallier, Nuria Sebastian-Galles and Walter van Heuven. In addition
to the individual talks, there will be a roundtable discussion between several
of the invited speakers. The topic for the inaugural workshop will be
Representation and Control in L1 and L2: Functional and Neural Perspectives.

A poster session is being organized for students, post-docs and young
researchers to present their work. The present call for submissions refers to
this poster session. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please submit
your abstract (500 words maximum) online by June 1st, 2005 at
http://www.unitn.it/events/bilingualism/. A limited number of posters will be
accepted on the basis of their scientific merit. Although submission of posters
related to the main topic of the workshop are encouraged, we will also consider
any submission that deals with cognitive and neuropsychological aspects of
bilingualism. For those individuals who do not have institutional support and
who would benefit from financial assistance, a small number of travel grants
funded by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto are available
on a competitive basis. Please indicate in your submission if you would like
your abstract to be considered as an application for a travel grant. The
Workshop is funded in part by the CARITRO Foundation and the University of Trento.
