Bilingualism and Executive Function An Interdisciplinary Approach
18-19 May 2015, Monday and Tuesday, 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
CUNY Graduate Center (365 5th Ave, New York City)
Graduate Center of the City University of New York, with the generous
National Science Foundation, is pleased to announce a two-day workshop
and executive function. The workshop's 5 panels will feature two
and a discussant. The participants' areas include cognitive psychology,
aging, and neuropsychology, bringing an interdisciplinary perspective
of how bilingualism is related to executive function.
Workshop will immediately precede the International Symposium on
at Rutgers University (ISB-10, 20-24 May 2015).
in all areas of cognitive science and related fields are welcome to
for a poster session (18 May 2015) on bilingualism and executive

Academy Colloquium will bring together leading experts from
neurobiology, cognitive psychology, and genetics to critically evaluate
the known aspects of synaesthesia and debate the scientific questions
that can be answered by studying this intriguing phenomenon. Preceding
the international Academy Colloquium a Master Class for young
researchers, PhD-students and research master students in Neurobiology
of Synaesthesia is organised.

Bilingualism and the Brain - May 28 & 29, 2015Montreal Neurological
bilingual brain is of great interest to the field of neuroscience as it
offers a window into questions about how our brains are shaped by
experience. This international symposium on bilingualism and the brain
that will take place at the Neuro on May 28 and 29, 2015 aims to
address the neural underpinnings of bilingual brain organization and
issues around brain development and plasticity.
will bring together experts from multiple domains of neuroscience to
shed light on current views of how experience influences brain function
and structure from the developing brain through to old age and how we
might understand brain plasticity in health and in disease. There will
be two poster sessions and a panel discussion.

International Morphological Processing Conference
is to remind you that the 9th International Morphological Processing
Conference will be held at the University of Potsdam's Campus 'Neues
Palais', Germany, from 18 June to 20 June 2015.
addition to regular talks and posters there will be three symposia on
"The timing of morphological processing", "Morphology in
multilingual language processing" and "Morphology in
agreement processing" as well as a pre-conference workshop onEye
tracking paradigms for morphological processing(17 June 2015, sponsored
conference welcomes experimental psycholinguistic and neuroscientific
work on morphological processing, including studies with healthy
adults, children and language impaired populations.
conference site - the picturesque Neues Palais, built in Prussian
baroque style - is adjacent to the world-famous Park Sanssouci, a
UNESCO world heritage site.
beautiful city of Potsdam is well-known for being uniquely situated
between beautiful nature and the vibrant German capital of Berlin
(about 30 - 60 minutes away by public transport).
submission deadline for abstracts for posters and oral presentations is
15 March 2015.
information about the conference as well as abstract submission
guidelines can be found atwww.uni-potsdam.de/morphproc2015
look forward to welcoming you to Potsdam!
Bases of Speech Production 2015: Friday, March 27th, 2015 (a satellite
to the 2015 CNS meeting in San Francisco)
On December 1st, 2013, our lab held a symposium titled
"Neural Bases of Speech Production", which was a satellite to
the 2013 meeting of the Acoustical Society of America meeting happening
in San Francisco. The website for this symposium is at http://speechneuro.ucsf.edu/events/asa-satellite-symposium-neural-bases-speech-production, which shows the wide range of topics we covered.
We had a lot of great conversations at the breaks during the symposium,
and many of us continued these discussions after the conference at
dinner in a nearby restaurant.
sum, the symposium was such a success that we all agreed it should
happen again soon. And so, in keeping with our aim to make this a new tradition,
we're going to have the symposium again in 2015, this time as a
satellite to the 2015 meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society
(CNS2015) in San Francisco!
main CNS2015 meeting begins on Saturday, March 28th, and so our
symposium will take place at UCSF the day before, on Friday, March
27th. The website for CNS2015 is http://www.cogneurosociety.org/annual-meeting/upcoming-meeting/.
have yet to decide on our presenters for the symposium, but if you are
interested in presenting, please let me know.
PIs: please forward this email to your lab members.
forward to seeing you all in San Francisco!
