Special sessions

The ExLing 2020 conference includes two special sessions focusing on experimental methods and the state of the art in Language Education and Language Pathology.
 
Language Education
Objectives
The special session on Language Education is related to research and applications in major aspects of language learning and language teaching as well as the development of methodologies and technical aids to promote the study of language. In addition to the general population, special interest groups, including individuals with special educational needs, migrant education, and teaching individuals in rehabilitation centres impose great challenges to language educators. Multilingual and bidialectal environments may impose further challenges to both educators and language learners. The special session on Language Education targets to bring together specialists from different disciplines and advance our knowledge on language teaching and language learning through experimental methods and approaches adapted to everyone’s needs.
 
The session will promote the best testing and evaluating pedagogical practices for native and second/foreign language teaching, designing interventions and effective language curricula in accordance with the school context, age of the learner (adults vs. children) and educational requirements, and fostering diversity in language education. 
 
The session will host a keynote lecture on key aspects of the area along with a combination of oral and poster papers on diverse aspects of language education.
 
Submissions of abstracts related to the above objectives of the special session on Language Education are welcomed at ExLing 2020. To submit your abstract, please visit ExLing 2020 submissions' page 
 
Language Pathology
Objectives
The special session on Language Pathology is related to research and applications in major aspects of language disorders as well as the development of methodologies and technical aids to promote language rehabilitation therapies. Language deficits are the predominant symptoms of many neurodegenerative conditions including Primary Progressive Aphasia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Parkinson’s disease. The special session on Language Pathology targets to bring together interdisciplinary specialists and promote novel experimental methods that can complement and even improve current screening and/or diagnostic approaches and language batteries for testing and evaluating conditions affecting speech and language.
 
The session will promote interdisciplinary approaches among different research areas from applied and clinical linguistics to neuroscience and natural language processing.
 
The session will host a keynote lecture on key aspects of the area along with a combination of oral and poster papers on diverse aspects of language pathology. 
 
Submissions of abstracts related to the above objectives of the special session on Language Pathology are welcomed at ExLing 2020. To submit your abstract, please visit ExLing 2020 submissions' page
