Every year the Ling department runs a small conference on a specialized topic. It is generally relentlessly inter-disciplinary. This year is no exception. It is on the following topic.
Mayfest is a workshop that brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines and perspectives to discuss fundamental issues in linguistics. Over the course of two days, participants engage in talks and discussion sessions to stimulate new insights and collaboration. This year, we will be discussing the use of prediction in language and its neural instantiation. Researchers studying language perception, production, and development have been invited to speak about the representational properties, temporal dynamics, and neural underpinnings of expectations in language.
Admission is free (but please register), so if you are in the area you might want to drop by. Here is a link to the Schedule and short descriptions on what the invitees will be discussing.
