Academy of Aphasia 56th Annual  Meeting

October 21-23

Montreal, Canada

Submission deadline: April 23, 11:59pm PST

The 56th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Aphasia will be held at the Hotel Place D’Armes in Montreal, Canada. The Academy of Aphasia welcomes submissions of original experimental, clinical, theoretical, and historical research from any field that contributes to the study of aphasia, including Speech-Language Pathology, Psychology, Neurology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, History, and Computational Modeling.


Presentation types.  The annual meeting includes both platform and poster sessions.

Platform sessions include:

  • Scientific papers—consisting of original research that has not yet been published.
  • Symposia—consisting of a number of papers focusing on a common theme from researchers representing different laboratories. These papers may report on previously published research.
  • Mini-Workshops—methodologically oriented sessions consisting of a number of papers reporting a unique approach to a timely topic. The authors of these papers may be from a single research group.

Poster sessions include:

  • Scientific papers that can be presented primarily in a visual format.

The Academy considers poster sessions to be as scientifically meritorious as platform sessions. Poster sessions will not conflict with platform sessions.

Guidelines for abstract content.  The submitted abstract should provide a concise statement of the problem or hypothesis, procedures and analyses conducted, results obtained, and final conclusion(s) drawn. Abstracts may include a maximum of 500 words (excluding references) as well as one camera- ready figure/table (in JPEG only). American Psychological Association (APA) format should be used for references. Submissions that do not meet these guidelines will not be reviewed.

Symposia and Mini-Workshops.  In the case of symposia and mini-workshops, the organizer should submit an abstract summarizing the topic, including the names and affiliations of all the participants, and the titles of the other abstracts. In addition, an abstract should be submitted for each of the individual presentations. To help in the planning of the program, it is recommended that organizers of symposia and mini-workshops contact the chair of the Program Committee by e-mail ( about their plans to get feedback.

Authorship of submissions.  More than one abstract may be submitted by an individual, but an individual can be listed as first author on only one submission. Both members and non-members of the Academy are encouraged to submit proposals for scientific papers, symposia and mini-workshops.


Student papers must be co-authored by a member of the Academy. All submissions will be given equal consideration on the basis of their scientific merit and fitness for the Academy.

Conference participation.  The meeting is open to anyone interested in attending. However, meeting space is limited, and Academy of Aphasia members, authors of accepted papers, and the first authors of rejected papers will have preference if space limitations restrict the number of registrants.


Selection criteria for the meeting program.  The Program Committee will review the abstracts anonymously.  Selection of papers will be based on scientific merit, innovation, appropriateness for the Academy of Aphasia, on the representation of topics in the program. You will be notified by email of the decision by the Program Committee by June 30, 2018.


Program availability.  A short version of the program (without abstracts) will be distributed at the conference with other registration materials. Accepted abstracts will be published online in Frontier- Psychology in Language Science. Abstracts will be available in early fall for download from Frontiers.
