Call For Papers

The Tenth International conference on the Mental Lexicon will take place from the morning of October 19th to the evening of October 21, 2016 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The conference brings together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain. We are currently accepting abstract submissions for platform and poster presentations. As in previous years, we anticipate an excellent selection of oral and poster presentations on topics that range from models of the representation and processing of words in the mind and brain to neurolinguistic studies of lexical impairment. The conference will include both 15-minute platform presentations and poster sessions on each day. The language of the conference is English.

As in previous years, a special journal issue resulting from the conference is planned.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts was Monday May 9, 2016.

Looking forward to seeing you in Ottawa!

On behalf of the organizing committee,
