We are delighted to announce the 21th 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 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 pictoresque 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
models of acquisition
neurobiology of language processing
parsing and interpretation
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 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 a awe-inspiring fortified city full of history (and cathedrals),
and so we hope to see as many of you as possible. A further email announcing the opening of
registration will be sent out in the coming weeks.
