Meeting Description:

Call for poster abstracts

The second annual Rovereto Workshop on Bilingualism will be held September
28 - October 1 this year (2006) at the Laboratorio di Scienze Cognitive at
the University of Trento in Rovereto (Italy). The goal for this annual
workshop is to bridge the cognitive and neural perspectives on bilingual
language processing and to foster discussion and productive collaborations
between senior and junior researchers. The workshop differs from larger
conferences insofar as there are only 10 speakers (all invited) and there
are no concurrent talks. The topic for year's workshop is Bilingual
Sentence Processing: Functional and Neural Perspectives.

A poster session is being organized for students, and young researchers to
present their work. The present call for submissions refers to this poster
session. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please submit your
abstract (500 words maximum) online by June 1st, 2006 at (The website will be ready after
March 10th, 2006.) A limited number of posters will be accepted on the
basis of their scientific merit. Although submission of posters related to
the main topic of the workshop are encouraged, we will also consider any
submission that deals with cognitive and/or neuropsychological aspects of
bilingualism. For those individuals who do not have institutional support
and who would benefit from financial assistance, a small number of travel
grants funded by the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Trento e Rovereto
are available on a competitive basis. Please indicate in your submission
if you would like your abstract to be considered as an application for a
travel grant. The Workshop is funded in part by the CARITRO Foundation and
the University of Trento.
