ABOUT


AMLaP (Architectures and Mechanisms for Language Processing) is a premier venue for interdisciplinary psycholinguistic research which aims to bring together researchers with empirical, theoretical, computational, neural, and psychological perspectives on all aspects of language processing. 

The 30th AMLaP conference will be held in person in Edinburgh, Scotland, 5-7 September 2024. We invite you to join us in Edinburgh to combine excellent science with a visit to a beautiful and historic city that is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
