Welcome to the Twelfth Annual Meeting of the
Society for the Neurobiology of Language

Welcome to SNL 2020 Virtual!

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce the Twelfth Meeting of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language and its first virtual version on October 21-24, 2020.

While all the wonderful opportunities to personally meet, listen to talks, discuss posters, and exchange the latest scientific ideas will be virtual, we have made sure that there are ample options for you to do so over coffee or drinks in the virtual SNL world!

This virtual SNL meeting has also made it possible to reach out to members near and far, and most importantly interested new members and all of those members who normally cannot travel long distances to be part of our exciting meeting.

During the four days of our virtual meeting, you will be able to enjoy an exciting program with Keynote talks by Jenny Crinion (University College London), Elissa Newport (Georgetown University), and Hugues Duffau (CHU Montpellier) spanning topics from aphasia therapy, ECoG, to language acquisition. We have some exciting Symposia lined up, providing us the latest insights into longitudinal studies on the brain dynamics of language acquisition, sleep and language learning, and linguistic levels of representation. In addition, we have a lively Student Session, Growing Up in Science. Together with the Slide and Poster sessions and the Student Session, Growing Up in Science, we really have lots of exciting speech and language science to look forward to.

We are extremely pleased to announce the winner of this year’s Distinguished Career Award, Karen Emmorey, for her outstanding contributions to the field of the neurobiology of language, generously sponsored by Language, Cognition and Neuroscience. We also look forward to the Early Career Award talk by Gesa Hartwigsen, and the very first Dissertation Award talk by Laura Gwilliams, both awards generously sponsored by Brain and Language to acknowledge young and thriving scientists in the field for their contribution to the neurobiology of language.

We would like to acknowledge our sponsors: Neurobiology of Language (The MIT Press) (Gold Sponsor); Brain & Language (Elsevier) (Awards Sponsor); Language, Cognition & Neuroscience (Routledge) (Awards Sponsor); Rogue Research Inc. (Silver Sponsor); The Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL) (Meeting Sponsor); UC Davis (Meeting Sponsor); and Brain Vision, LLC (Exhibitor).

We are looking forward to seeing you all online for an exciting meeting with lots of scientific exchange and time to catch up!
