WILD 2019 – Workshop on Infant Language Development

The Language Acquisition Group of the University of Potsdam is pleased to announce the fourth biennial Workshop on Infant Language Development (WILD). The overarching goal of WILD is to bring together scientists with different perspectives and methodological approaches to the study of early language and cognitive development. The meeting will be held in June 2019 in Potsdam, Germany. WILD was hosted previously in San Sebastian (2013), Stockholm (2015) and Bilbao (2017).

WILD has been created to highlight recent research on a wide range of topics within monolingual and bilingual development, including but not limited to:

  • Speech perception and production
  • Word learning
  • The development of syntax and morphology
  • Brain mechanisms and first language acquisition
  • Recent advances in infant brain imaging techniques (i.e., EEG, NIRS)
  • Atypical language development
  • Language and cognition
  • Early bilingualism
  • Multilingual development
  • The role of culture in language development
  • Gestures and non-verbal communication in infants and toddlers
