Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition

 GALA 2013 will take place at the University of Oldenburg from September 5th till 7th, 2013. The conference will focus on first and second language acquisition, bilingual acquisition, language pathology and language development in hearing impaired children. There will be two parallel main sessions, two poster sessions and two workshops. The workshops will be held on hearing impairment (organized by Esther Ruigendijk), and bilingual SLI (organized by Cornelia Hamann), for which we especially solicit abstracts.
