【Other Academic Conferences】Deadline Extended for Bilingualism and the Brain Workshop: Feb 21st 2020

 *Bilingualism and the Brain (May 4th-5th)  **EXTENDED DEADLINE: Feb. 21st 2020

  The AcqVA Aurora center (formerly LAVA) and the PoLaR lab  (Psycholinguistics of Language Representation) at UiT the Arctic University of Norway are pleased to announce the workshop Bilingualism and the Brain, to be held in Tromsø May 4th-5th, 2020. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers from around the world who work on bilingualism from a brain prospective. More specifically, the focus will be to what extent the amount of exposure, knowledge and the degree of active engagement with more than one language in a single mind affects brain structure, brain functions, and/or how neurophysiological measures tap into the processing of multiple languages.

 The deadline for submissions is extended to *February 21st, 2020.* You may submit an abstract for consideration as a paper, poster or both. Please indicate in your submission if you would like to be considered as a paper or poster only; all others will be automatically considered for both. We accept poster submissions, especially from graduate students and postdocs, that present ongoing work, even at a well-developed (but not yet implemented) conceptual level. Prior to the actual poster session, each presenter will give a 5 minute flash talk on their poster. This will be followed a traditional poster session, in which presenters and workshop attendees can discuss the work. Abstract submissions must fit on one A4 page, written in Times New Roman script, 12 point font. A second, optional page can be used for references, charts/tables, and examples of experimental methodology only. Your abstract should include a title, but no identifying information. Up to five 5000 NOK (roughly 500 euros) in funding is available to PhD students with highly rated abstracts. If you wish to be considered for this, please send an e-mail to: bilingualismandthebrain@gmail.com. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed and we endeavor to inform authors of the outcome by March 15th, 2020.
