Meeting Description:

IVCSLP is a multisite scientific event that aims to host the latest research on sign languages, and to build bridges between researchers, practitioners and the general public by displaying Augmented Reality Posters in different locations in Montevideo and selected Uruguayan cities. This conference provides a venue for international scholars to share their work virtually, while also raising public awareness in Uruguay on the status of sign languages and the many applications of sign language research. This international event is hosted by the Center of Basic Research in Psychology of the Faculty of Psychology of the Uruguayan University of the Republic, the Faculty of Human Sciences and Education of the Uruguayan University of the Republic, and the CIES-IUL of the University Institute of Lisbon (Portugal). The event is organized in the context of ongoing efforts to increase awareness and appreciation of sign languages by Uruguayan society. The aim is to increase the visibility of national and international scholars, engaged in empirical research, of cognitive processes involved in signing.
