Third biennial Workshop on Infant Language Development (WILD)

The Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language is pleased to announce that the program for the third biennial Workshop on Infant Language Development (WILD) is available. 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.

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.
