We are delighted to announce the 21st AMLaP Conference.  AMLaP was first held in Edinburgh in 1995. In the intervening years, it has established itself as the premier European venue for interdisciplinary research into human language processing. After the anniversary edition in Edinburgh, AMLaP is returning to the Mediterranean, to be held at the historic Valletta Campus of the University of Malta.

In this picturesque venue and the high quality of contributions we await from old friends and new, we hope that AMLaP 2015 will be a conference to remember.

As ever, we invite submissions on a broad range of topics relevant to the study of how people understand and produce language. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • bilingual language processing
  • computational models, symbolic and connectionist
  • corpus-based studies and statistical mechanisms
  • cross-linguistic studies
  • dialogue processing
  • discourse
  • language comprehension
  • language production
  • lexical processing
  • learning mechanisms
  • models of acquisition
  • neurobiology of language processing
  • parsing and interpretation
  • prosody

Malta is the most southern state in the EU, so we are expecting warm and sunny weather at the time of the conference (even though a thunderstorm cannot be ruled out in early September).

The water temperature is expected to be a pleasant 26 degrees Celsius (79 Fahrenheit for our North American Guests).

Valletta, destined to be an EU cultural capital in 2018, is an awe-inspiring fortified city full of history (and cathedrals) and so we hope to see as many of you as possible. 

Abstracts should be submitted between 1 March 2015 and 6 May 2015 (extended deadline). Papers may be submitted by following this link.  Notification of acceptance will be made by 5 June 2015


Best wishes,

Albert Gatt & Holger Mitterer
