The Sixth Saint Petersburg Winter Workshop on Experimental Studies of Speech and Language (Night Whites 2022) will be hosted by Saint Petersburg State University, Russia, on December 15-16, 2022. The talks will focus on topics broadly defined as experimental studies of human language. The keynote lectures at the workshop will be given by:
- Andrej Kibrik, Institute of Linguistics, RAS. Pro-pluralism in experimental linguistics. To the memory of Russell Tomlin
- Andriy Myachykov, Northumbria University and Higher School of Economics, Moscow. Sentence production from perception to speaking
- Yury Shtyrov, Aarhus University, Higher School of Economics, Moscow, and Saint Petersburg State University. Neurocognitive systems for verbal learning
- Natalia Slioussar, Higher School of Economics, Moscow, and Saint Petersburg State University. Attractions of agreement: what three decades of experiments taught us
This workshop aims at bringing together researchers working on language for an event that will transcend disciplinary boundaries to give a snapshot of the current state-of-the-art in the field and encourage new contacts, ideas and collaborations. Unlike most international events held in Russia’s Northern Capital that see the city packed with tourists during the White Night season around midsummer, we will meet in the depth of dark cold Russian winter. Among the advantages are low hotel rates and flight fares, hot scientific discussions (not hindered by the urge to party outside), beautiful city without crowds and some of the most exotic short winter days to be seen on the planet and lots of snow — if we are lucky.
The workshop language is English. Synchronous translation of plenary talks to Russian will be provided. To attend the workshop, please, get registered at the university website.
