【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.

【Other Academic Conferences】Micro-variation in Multilingualism [September 17-18, 2020, UiT The Arctic University of Norway]

 *Micro-variation in MultilingualismUiT The Arctic University of Norway September 17-18, 2020 We are inviting proposals for the workshop Micro-variation in Multilingualism hosted by the AcqVA (Acquisition, Variation & Attrition) <http://site.uit.no/acqva/> research group and the project MiMS (Microvariation in Multilingual acquisition & attrition Situations) <http://site.uit.no/mims/>, funded by the Research Council of Norway 2016-2020.

Keynote speakers
-Theresa Biberauer <https://www.mmll.cam.ac.uk/dr-theresa-biberauer> (University of Cambridge)
- Cristina Flores <http://cehum.ilch.uminho.pt/researchers/2> (University of Minho)
- Michael Putnam <https://psumikeputnam.weebly.com/> (Penn State University)
- Lydia White <https://www.mcgill.ca/linguistics/lydia-white> (McGill University)

 The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on micro-variation in bi- and multilingual populations on topics that are (directly or indirectly) related to the questions investigated in MiMS. Topics that extend the focus of the project, e.g. to different language combinations, different linguistic phenomena or different populations, are especially welcome. The following is a brief project description (more information may be found on the MiMS project website <http://site.uit.no/mims/>)
:The MiMS project addresses central issues in linguistics within a new approach to language acquisition and attrition, the Micro-Cue Model (MCM,) which has been developed in a number of publications in recent years (e.g. Westergaard 2009, 2014) based on data from monolingual acquisition. The fundamental claim of the model is that young children do not learn language by setting large-scale parameters, but that they are sensitive to fine linguistic distinctions from early on.

 The MiMS project extends this theoretical approach to multilingual situations, and new data are collected from several populations of bi- and multilingual children and adults, e.g. German-Russian bilingual children, Norwegian-American heritage speakers, and bilingual children learning a third language. The focus is on (morpho-)syntactic micro-variation in Norwegian, Russian, German and English, related to word order and certain aspects of nominal structure (grammatical gender, determiner use).

   These languages and these syntactic constructions represent interesting combinations of challenges, both for children acquiring and adults maintaining these systems in multilingual contexts. According to the MCM, both acquisition and change take place in small steps. The MiMS project investigates to what extent these small steps and fine distinctions are also operative in multilingualism, as cross-linguistic influence. By identifying the small steps (referred to as micro-cues), the project increases our understanding of the human language faculty and the building blocks of language. It also investigates the effect of more general

factors such as complexity, frequency and economy in the acquisition and attrition processes. Some of the results of the project may be found in Westergaard et al. (2017), Anderssen et al. (2018), Mitrofanova et al. (2018) and Westergaard (2019).The deadline for abstract submissions is May 15, 2020.

> Please find the abstract submission link here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mims2020<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mims2020> We welcome both paper and poster presentations. We also encourage junior researchers to submit their work. Length of presentations is 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for Q&A. We plan to publish a special issue in Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism (LAB) after this workshop. Length of abstracts: max. 1 page; references, examples, charts and tables may be provided on an additional page. Travel grants: PhD and MA students may apply for three travel grants of NOK 5,000 each. Please indicate your interest when submitting your abstract. We look forward to welcoming you to Tromsø in September 2020!
