Workshop Memory consolidation and word learning
Talks will address a wide range of topics in memory consolidation in children and adults, with a focus on language learning.
Invited speakers are Asaf Gilboa (Baycrest), Gareth Gaskell (York), Rebecca Gómez (Arizona), Anna Weighall (Leeds), Bob McMurray (Iowa), Mike Page (Hertfordshire), Penny Lewis (Manchester), and Guillén Fernández (Nijmegen).
We invite anyone working on memory and/or language learning to present a poster on Monday. If you would like to present, please indicate this in your registration e-mail. We will contact you in February for a title if you do not have one at the moment.
There will be a workshop dinner in the city centre on Monday, for which you are very welcome to join (at your own cost). When registering please let us know if you would like to attend dinner and if you have any dietary restrictions. Please note that there will be coffee and tea during the workshop, but lunch will not be provided.
If you are interested in attending, please register before February 20th by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no registration fee.
