Conference announcement: The 5th Variation and Language Processing Conference (VALP5)

The 5th Variation and Language Processing Conference (VALP5) will be held at University of Copenhagen (Denmark) from 25-27 August 2021, after successful previous conferences in the UK, New Zealand, the United States and Australia.

Plenary speakers are: 

Associate Professor of Sociolinguistics Kathryn Campbell-Kibler

Professor of Psycholinguistics Marianne Gullberg 

Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience Peter Hagoort

The conference provides a venue for researchers coming from traditionally distinct fields, such as sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive science, experimental phonetics, syntax and pragmatics, who work on the relationship between linguistic variation, in its widest sense, and language processing. A main theme of this year’s conference will be the processing of linguistic and indexical variation by bi- and multilingual individuals, and we encourage submissions both within and beyond this theme.
