13th Annual Conference on
Architectures and Mechanisms for Language Processing

August 24-27, 2007, Turku, Finland
 

WELCOME TO AMLaP 2007!

AMLaP is an annual international conference, which has established itself as the premier European venue for interdisciplinary research on how people process language. The conference aims to bring together psychological, linguistic, computational, and theoretical perspectives on the cognitive architectures and mechanisms which underlie any aspect of human language processing - from lexical processing, parsing and interpretation through to discourse level mechanisms. Contributions to AMLaP 2007 which explicitly relate empirical findings to computational mechanisms are especially encouraged. Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to): language production, parsing and interpretation, word recognition, speech perception, lexical processing and representation, morphology, reading, discourse processing, language acquisition, cross-linguistic studies, corpus-based studies, learning mechanisms, models of acquisition, connectionist models, statistical mechanisms, computational models and computer simulations.

It is the first time AMLaP will be held in the Nordic Countries. The conference site Turku is located in the southwest corner of Finland and can be reached by air via Stockholm, Copenhagen or Helsinki.
