Welcome to SNL 2018

Come celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language in beautiful Québec City, Canada! This year, we have planned a full three-day meeting – August 16-18, 2018. Abstract submission is now open, and the deadline for submission is April 18, 2018.

The meeting will be held at the Québec City Convention Centre, which is strategically located on Parliament Hill in the heart of the Upper city, just steps away from Old Québec, the ramparts, and a wealth of boutiques, restaurants and night spots. We are also delighted to invite you to the Opening Night Reception at the world-renowned Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. 

Keynote lectures at the meeting will be given by Robert Zatorre, Dorothee Saur, and Julie Fiez. There will be a discussion of “How Language Evolved” with Robert Berwick and Morten Christiansen, and a panel of past SNL presidents will debate the “Neurobiology of Language: Past, Present, and Future.” Continuing the innovations from the Baltimore 2017 meeting, there will be one-minute poster slams and talks by the Early Career Award recipients. This year we are also delighted to announce the new Distinguished Career Award (sponsored by Language, Cognition and Neuroscience). The recipient of this award will receive an honorarium and be invited to present their work at the meeting.

Come cut the cake with us and take part in the exciting 10th Annual SNL meeting!
