on the 50th Anniversary of the Rescorla-Wagner equations and after the success of the first EDLL (2021) conference last year, we’re pleased to announce that the Second International Conference on Error-Driven Learning in Language (EDLL 2022) will take place this year. Due to continued uncertainty regarding travel restrictions, the conference will be held online. The conference will take place from the 1st-3rd of August, 2022.
The Second International Conference on Error-Driven Learning in Language (EDLL 2022) aims to bring together researchers interested in error-driven learning in speech and language. We would also be interested in submissions from neighbouring fields, such as implicit learning, statistical learning and applied linguistics, especially if a connection can be made to error-driven learning. Work in progress is also welcome.
Error-driven learning models, such as Rescorla and Wagner (1972) and Widrow and Hoff (1960) have had a major influence on many areas of psychology related to human and animal learning. However, research on language learning took a separate path for a long time. Recently, insights from error-driven learning have begun to be applied to a broad range of language phenomena with promising results. For example, error-driven learning models have addressed questions relating to reading, spoken word comprehension, colour and number acquisition, word learning, first and second language speech sound acquisition, morphological processing, sentence processing, neural correlates of prediction error and more.
We are excited to announce our fantastic line up of Keynote speakers:
Prof Peter Dayan, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics
Dr Elizabeth Wonnacott, University of Oxford
Prof Padraic Monaghan, University of Lancaster and University of Amsterdam
Dr Jacolien van Rij, University of Groningen
2nd Call for Papers:
Call for abstracts:
We are inviting experimental, computational or theoretical abstracts on any topic in error-driven learning of speech or language. Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
The role of prediction error in
- first and second language acquisition
- learning or processing phonetic, morphological, syntactic or lexical information
- sentence processing, syntax and grammar acquisition and processing
as well as
- neural processing of error feedback during speech and language comprehension, production or learning
- the relationship between error-driven learning and information theory
- learning models such as implicit learning, Hebbian learning, statistical learning, Bayesian learning or distributional learning, especially if a connection can be made to error-driven learning.
Abstracts due: 18 April, 2022
Notification of acceptance sent: 10 June, 2022
Revised abstracts due: 1 July, 2022
Conference: 1-3 August, 2022
There will be no registration fee. Participation is free. However, participants will be required to register. Registration information to follow.
We will publish abstracts in an online proceedings. Authors will retain copyright.
Anonymous abstracts should be submitted to EasyChair at the following link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edll2022
Abstracts should be written in English and be no more than one page of text, single line spacing, with an optional second page for tables, figures and references. Please see the submission page for formatting and other details.
