11th International Conference on the Mental Lexicon
Edmonton, AB, Canada
September 25-28th, 2018

The 11th International Conference on the Mental Lexicon will bring together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain. The conference encourages a variety of perspectives on lexical representation and processing.

The 2018 conference will be held in Edmonton at the Delta Hotel, Edmonton City Centre, Alberta, Canada, where it was first launched in 1998.  As in previous years, we anticipate an excellent selection of high quality research presentations on topics that include, but are not limited to, computational models, neurolinguistics, language processing in development, bilingualism, and typical or atypical populations. There will be two keynote speakers: Mirjam Ernestus and Gabriella Vigliocco. Like the previous meetings, the conference will include both 15-minute platform presentations and poster sessions each day. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is April 28, 2018. Please consult the Abstract Submission Guidelines here.
