Words in the World International Conference

We are excited to announce the Second Edition of The Words in the World (WoW) International Conference (WOW2021). The conference brings together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain. In the spirit of the first WOW Conference held in 2020, this virtual gathering offers a venue for the communication of ideas, intellectual exchange, and networking for trainees.  We encourage students and postdoctoral fellows from all over the world to present their in-progress or completed work at this conference and engage in conversations with their colleagues on academic and non-academic topics. Papers presented can, of course, include a mix of trainees and faculty members. Non-trainee first-authored papers will be considered for poster presentation only.

This conference will take place online November 26-27, 2021.

The Conference will include both brief (10-minute) talks via Zoom as well as posters that will take place in gather.town. The conference will strive to create presentation opportunities for trainees (for example, undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, recent graduates, and others). Papers presented can, of course, include a mix of trainees and faculty members as authors. Non-trainee first-authored papers will be considered for poster presentation only.

Abstracts will be submitted through EasyChair. Submission guidelines are available at this link: http://wordsintheworld.ca/wow-conference/abstract-guidelines/

Abstract submission deadline: Extended to September 17, 2021
Submissions open: August 15, 2021 
Decisions of the Scientific Committee will be announced: October 25, 2021

All further information, including submission guidelines, will be made available here as they become available.
