Topics: This year’s general topic is Linguistic Diversity: Theories, Methods, Resources. The topic can be approached from different perspectives: multilingualism, language contact, language variation, language change, etc. The triad of “theories, methods, resources” opens up a theoretical perspective as well as a discussion of empirical methods and digital resources.
Topics: The focus of this meeting is on the scientific study of the emergence, use, and nature of language in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Language impairment, though not a core symptom of ASD, is one of the most important predictors of long term outcomes and independence. The study of language in ASD also has the potential to inform our understanding of language itself, as we explore why some individuals with ASD have difficulties with certain domains of language while other domains remain fully intact.
At the intersection of theory, pedagogy, and praxis the Asian Conference on Language invites researchers and teachers to submit proposals in the following areas: Language Acquisition; Language and Communication; Language and Culture; Language and Psychology; Language and Technology; Language Learning and Teaching

The Congress will promote contributions by scientists of different disciplines, such as neuroscience, genetics, sociology, political science, education, media.
Topics: The conference explores all aspects of multilingualism in the fields of linguistics, psychology, neurology, sociology, and educational sciences. Papers that address issues related to the five CeLM themes are particularly welcome: Language and Literacy, Education, Neuroscience, Health and Migration.
Topics: The conference is planned to mark the retirement of Professor Marilyn Vihman later that summer. Professor Vihman’s work on the relationship between perception and production has changed our understanding of how children build early phonological representations, and her publications on phonological, lexical and morphological development have become essential reading for child language scholars around the world.
