AMLaP is an international conference which has established itself as the premier European venue for interdisciplinary research into how people process language. The aim of the conference is to bring together psychological, computational, and theoretical perspectives on the cognitive mechanisms which underlie any aspect of human language processing. Contributions to AMLaP which explicitly relate empirical and experimental findings and computational mechanisms are especially encouraged.
Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):
  • bilingual language processing
  • computational models, symbolic and connectionist
  • corpus-based studies and statistical mechanisms
  • cross-linguistic studies
  • dialogue processing
  • discourse
  • language comprehension
  • language production 
  • lexical processing
  • learning mechanisms
  • models of acquisition
  • neurobiology of language processing
  • parsing and interpretation
  • prosody
