The University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) is hosting the VIII edition of the AEAL Conference that will be held in Palma de Mallorca, from 7th to 9th September 2016 at its University Campus.
 
The Association for the Study of Language Acquisition (AEAL) promotes the study of the acquisition and development of language in monolingual or multilingual contexts, with particular attention to the acquisition of Spanish, Basque, Catalan, and Galician languages, and the relationships of language with other psychological, social, educational and biological processes. This triennial conference is a great occasion for meeting experts in language acquisition working in a varied set of areas such as grammar, lexicon, discourse, pragmatics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, sociolinguistics, language didactics and pedagogy. This conference will focus on the relationship between cognition and language during typical and atypical child development, especially in bilingual contexts.
