Conference on Multilingualism (COM) 2018

16th – 18th December 2018

The Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences (FPPW) at Ghent University is organising the Conference on Multilingualism 2018. The conference will take place from Sunday 16th to Tuesday 18th December 2018 in the historic city of Ghent, Belgium. The call for oral and poster presentations will open soon.

The Conference on Multilingualism actually has a longstanding tradition. It started in 2005 at the University of Trento under the name ‘Workshop on Bilingualism’. Since then, the name has been changed a couple of times to ‘Neurobilingualism’ and ‘Workshop of Neurobilingualism’. In 2016, it was decided to continue the conference under the somewhat broader label of ‘Conference on multilingualism’ (COM) in order to include different aspects of multilingualism. COM was subsequently held in Ghent (2016) and Groningen (2017), and is this year coming to Ghent once again.

Although the official call is coming soon, participants wishing to host a symposium may already contact us at com2018@ugent.be. Suitable topics are all aspects of multilingualism in the fields of linguistics, psychology, neurology, sociology, and educational sciences.
