IWLP was founded in 2004. Since then, nine workshops have been held, currently on a biannual schedule (website).
The 10th jubilee meeting in 2018 will be in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, hosted by Radboud University and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. The venue of the meeting will be the Max Planck Institute in Nijmegen. The workshop will take place from July 2 to July 4 2018.
The Nijmegen workshop will have a slightly different structure from its predecessors. Pim Levelt's book Speaking was published in 1989. To commemorate the (almost) 30th anniversary of Speaking, an important aim of the workshop is to review how research in the field of language production has progressed since 1989 and to discuss where production research should go in the future. All invited speakers will tie their contribution explicitly to issues raised in one or several of the chapters in Speaking.
