The aim of the biennial IMPRS conference series on Interdisciplinary Approaches in the Language Sciences is to inspire the next generation of language scientists to take on new challenges that will further our understanding of the human language ability.
Keynote speakers were selected by the current members of the IMPRS for Language Sciences based on the speakers' contributions to their research fields. Their talks will reveal the ideas and processes that shape their work, highlight recent findings and hint at future endeavours.
The 2020 edition will cover two main themes, namely Language Disorders with keynote talks by Prof. dr. Ellen Gerrits & Prof. dr. Matthew Lambon-Ralph, and Memory & Learning with keynote talks by Dr. Laura Batterink & Prof. dr. Carel ten Cate.
To illustrate a variety of interdisciplinary approaches, each theme will also have short talks presented by other up-and-coming as well as prominent scientists. During the poster sessions, junior researchers are invited to present their work and get to know other researchers. Moreover, several workshops are planned that will be of particular interest to our target audience. Doctoral candidates and masters students are highly encouraged to participate; limited places are also reserved for other interested persons.
