Call for Abstracts: 12th International Symposium of Psycholinguistics

Call for Abstracts: 12th International Symposium of Psycholinguistics

July 1-4, 2015 Valencia, Spain

Submission of abstracts: From November 17, 2014 until February 16, 2015 (midnight CET)

The Symposium of Psycholinguistics is an international conference on any topic related to human language processing, bringing together the different approaches of this interdisciplinary field. Previous editions of the Symposium of Psycholinguistics have taken place every two years since 1993 at different locations in Spain –including 2005 in Valencia (Spain)

The 12th International Symposium of Psycholinguistics will be an open forum for exchange of ideas on theoretical and experimental issues related to how people process language, including, but not limited to topics as visual word recognition, language production, sentence and discourse processing, semantic representation, pragmatics, language pathology, language development, and bilingualism.

We will provide participants of this conference a comfortable environment that we expect will stimulate fruitful scientific discussions.

Call for Abstracts: Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior 2015 Annual Conference

July 25 – 28, 2015 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Regular Abstracts: These must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on January 25, 2015.

The Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior (SNEB) invites you to submit abstracts for presentation at the 2015 Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA July 25 – 28, 2015. SNEB is interested in abstracts about research, and/or programs that relate to behavior change and food choice, regardless of whether or not the desired behavior occurred.  Abstracts related to this year’s conference theme: 
Creativity & Innovation in Nutrition Education are also encouraged.  This year SNEB is also calling for abstracts in a new category: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

For SNEB, SoTL is the scholarly inquiry associated with teaching students in a college/university course or curriculum.  Examples of SoTL may include:

•  Best practices associated with teaching undergraduate or graduate nutrition courses

•  Innovative and high impact teaching strategies (service-learning, flipped classrooms, online learning environments, study abroad, etc.)

•  Individual course or curriculum development

•  Assessment of student learning outcomes

Those wishing to submit SoTL abstracts should follow the same guidelines provided for the Research and Practice abstract categories. However, when submitting your SoTL abstract, please select SoTL for the abstract category in the appropriate drop-down menu. If you have any questions about if your SoTL work fits with SNEB, please contact Suzie Goodell (, the Higher Education Division chair.
