Mental Lexicon 2018

The 11th International Conference on the Mental Lexicon will be held in Edmonton, Alberta, September 25-28, 2018.

The call for papers has been announced. Submissions guidelines and procedures are here.

A Green Conference
A sub-theme of the conference this year will be to ‘go green’ – to recycle and reduce waste.

Information about the conference (abstracts, practicalities, etc.) will only be available online. You will receive email updates from time to time and everything will be posted on this website. No information will be printed and handed out during registration – if you would like a paper version, please print it out yourself.

To reduce waste, we will NOT be handing out lanyards for your name tags. We will print the name cards and they will be available for collection during registration, but we ask you to recycle by bringing (and reusing!) an old lanyard to MenLex2018 to complete your name tag.

In order to help students attend MenLex2018, and to reduce potential waste, there will be no gifts (conference bags, memory sticks, etc.) handed out to participants at registration. Instead, we will provide (a limited number of) financial stipends to graduate students presenting at the conference. More information about how to apply for one of these stipends will be sent out to students at a later date.
