IWORDD 2019 International Workshop on Reading and Developmental Dyslexia
Welcome to the third edition of the International Workshop on Reading and Developmental Dyslexia in San Sebastiàn!
iWORDD was created back in 2013 with the aim to bring together researchers interested in understanding the causes and manifestations of developmental dyslexia and attempts to address the theoretical issues faced in this field.
CONFERENCE PROGRAM. Part One: IWORDD -- Theoretical Perspectives (October 2 and 3)
Across two full days, the third edition of iWORDD will feature four excellent invited speakers whose theoretical views will cover various issues related to the impact of cross-linguistic variations on the manifestations of reading development and reading disorders. Questions linked to how structural differences amongst languages modulate reading acquisition and reading disorders will be addressed as well as important timely issues such as multilingualism and second language learning.
iWORDD will therefore offer the research community the opportunity to get a broad overview of the current cross-linguistic theories underlying research in the field, while helping outline future directions in the investigation of developmental dyslexia.
With it limited size, iWORDD will encourage interactions among invited speakers and researchers during the four keynote lectures, invited symposiums, oral as well as poster sessions.
CONFERENCE PROGRAM. Part Two: IWORDD -- From Theory to Practice (October 4). Go to website
Coupled with the aim of generating new ideas to advance our field from theoretical perspectives, the ultimate goal of iWORDD is to highlight innovative thinking which could play in important role in clinical practice and education. With this in mind, a day devoted to linking theory to practice which will be open to a broader audience will take place after the two days of scientific meeting between researchers.

Symposium-talks/Oral presentation - iWORDD 2019
In order to make sure that the time slots allocated to each talk will be kept at iWORDD 2019, we would like to ask you that you send your final slides for the presentation in advance, so that we can set up the shared laptops for this purpose. We would prefer you not using your own laptop.
Could you please send your slides by 11:59 PM the day before your talk using the link below to facilitate smooth transitions between talks.
We have scheduled 20 minutes for the talks including 5 minutes for discussion, and 25 minutes for symposium-talks for which the discussion will be at the end of the symposium.
The two laptops have the following configurations:
- LAPTOP_1: MS Windows10 Pro, MS Office Standard 2013, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2018.011.20040, VLC 3.0.3.
- LAPTOP_2: MacOS High Sierra 10.13.5, MS Office 2011 for Mac , KeyNote 8.0.1, VLC 3.0.3, Quicktime Player 10.4.
Please upload your presentation using the following Link
Please name the presentation according to the oral session/symposium the presentation is for (e.g.: OS-2.3 for Oral Session 2, third presentation / S.1.2 for Symposium 1, second presentation). The presentations will be loaded in both computers.
Also note that during the registration, coffee and lunch breaks, presenters will be able to test their presentations for the upcoming session.
Participants are requested to design posters (portrait) with the following dimensions:
- Maximum poster height: 120 cm
- Maximum poster width: 90 cm
Each poster will be given a unique number which correspond to the poster panel.
