Meeting Description:

The Workshop on Infant Speech Perception (WISP) will highlight recent research on infants’ developing abilities to perceive and learn the phonological, morphological and prosodic systems of language.  Research has shown that children make use of perceptual cues very early in life to bootstrap the learning of phonemes, carry out processes of word segmentation, and identify morphological boundaries. However, the mechanisms underlying how these levels of language learning are integrated and represented in early language development is still unclear. Even less is known about how these aspects of language learning proceed in early bilinguals or children with hearing loss.  

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on various aspects of phonology, morphology and prosody to discuss novel techniques and paradigms that will shed light on the diverse roles of speech perception abilities at various stages of infant development, across languages and populations. The workshop will include keynote addresses and invited talks by experts in the fields of linguistics, cognitive science, and developmental psychology.

Call for Talks and Posters:

Abstracts should include:

- Title, name, affiliation, email
- 300 words plus half page of figures/references
