WILD 2017 - Workshop on Infant Language Development
The Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language is pleased to announce the third biennial Workshop on Infant Language Development (WILD). The overarching goal of WILD is to bring together scientists with different perspectives and methodological approaches to the study of early language and cognitive development. The meeting will be held between June 15th and 17th, 2017 in Bilbao, Spain. Our first meeting was held in 2013 in San Sebastian (http://www.bcbl.eu/events/wild/), and our second l meeting was organized by the Stockholm University in 2015 (http://www.stockholmbabylab.se/WILD2015/).
WILD has been created to highlight recent research on a wide range of topics within monolingual and bilingual development, including speech perception and production; word learning; the development of syntax and morphology; brain mechanisms and first language acquisition; recent advances in infant brain imaging techniques (i.e., EEG, NIRS); atypical language development; language and cognition; early bilingualism; multilingual development; the role of culture in language development; gestures and non-verbal communication in infants and toddlers.
