The 2014 AMLaP Conference will be hosted by the University of Edinburgh, in Scotland's historic capital city.

Edinburgh, Scotland

3 - 6 September 2014

This is the 20th AMLaP conference, and it is returning to its original home: The first AMLaP was held in Edinburgh in 1995. In the intervening years, AMLaP has established itself as the premier European venue for interdisciplinary research into how people process language. AMLaP's homecoming presents an opportunity to step back and cast a broad eye over progress in the field, looking at the gains made over the last two decades, and the opportunities and challenges for the next twenty years.
