Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language,
We are delighted to announce the call for papers for our 9th meeting to be held November 8-10 2017 in the city of Baltimore. Once again, our meeting will take place just before the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, to facilitate travel plans and interactions between the two societies.
The meeting will be held at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, situated close to the Inner Harbor which is a historic seaport, a major tourist attraction and a Baltimore landmark. For two and a half days we will enjoy keynote talks ranging from developmental neuroscience through cortical language encoding and aphasia to artificial networks and deep learning, together with poster sessions, 1 minute data blitzes, and a special symposium on neurocomputational modelling of language. There will be plenty of opportunities for socializing, sightseeing, and, of course, many lively discussions about language and the brain.
We are also thrilled to announce our first call for nominations for an Early Career Awards, sponsored by Brain and Language, to honor early career researchers who have made significant contributions to our understanding the neurobiology of language. We will have two awardees, each of whom will receive an honorarium and be invited to present their work at the annual meeting.
We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore!
