Research on code-switching was the province of specialists in linguistics alone in the latter part of the twentieth century, and is still a valuable source of insights into the human language faculty. However, it has relatively recently attracted the attention of researchers in psycholinguistics and neuroscience because of its promise to throw light not only on how the brain manages two or more potentially competing languages, but also on how the brain itself may adapt to the demands of this process.
The goal of this workshop will be to introduce researchers to this rapidly developing field and to allow those at the cutting edge to present their findings. In addition to state-of-the-art talks by specialists working in linguistics, psychology and neuroscience, abstracts are invited from researchers working on code-switching from one of these three perspectives.

Staying in Cambridge
We regret that we are unable to arrange accommodation, but the following websites provide a range of options. Availability for college rooms will be limited as the conference coincides with the start of term.
Some of the places listed on these websites might be out of walking distance from the conference venue, e.g. Girton and Cherry Hinton.
