Thursday Parallel Schedule

Parallel Session talks are each 5 minutes long, with 5-6 per  talks session presented during the first half hour of each session. Talks are listed in preferred order of presentation but may be presented in a different order if needed at the time of the session.  Time slots are not listed for each 5 minute talk within a session because we urge attendees to pick a single session to attend and listen to all presentations in that session, and not jump from session to session. We hope that this will promote group discussion.  Parallel sessions are thematically organized.

★ Indicates talk is part of the special session on Language Acquisition and Language Processing: Finding New Connections
