AMLaP is an annual international conference which has established itself as the premier European venue for interdisciplinary research into how people process language. The conference aims to bring together psychological, computational, and theoretical perspectives on the cognitive architectures and mechanisms which underly any aspect of human language processing, from lexical processing, parsing and interpretation, through to discourse level mechanisms. Contributions to AMLaP which explicity relate empirical and experimental findings and computational mechanisms are especially encouraged. Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):

computational models
lexical processing
cross-linguistic studies parsing and interpretation
language production learning mechanisms
statistical mechanisms connectionist models
dialogue processing
computer simulations
corpus-based studies models of acquisition
discourse processing

Invited speakers:   
  •  Jonathan Ginzburg (King's College London), 
  •  Peter Hagoort (Donders Institute, University of Nijmegen)
  •  Michael Tanenhaus (University of Rochester) 

  AMLaP 2003 is scheduled to follow the 12th European Conference on Eye Movements, which is being held in Dundee,  August 20-24

AMLaP 2003 is sponsored by the British Academy
