The 20th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing, 2007 is a special session on the Psycholinguistics of Signed and Spoken Languages. Nice names, nice titles, nice program.

They seem to have specifically invited veteran sign language researchers to talk to a broader audience. Some especially interesting ones (for me at least): * Gaurav Mathur and Catherine Best: Three experimental techniques for investigating sign language processing ** Eleni Orfanidou, Robert Adam, James McQueen and Gary Morgan: Segmentation of British Sign Language: Possible-word effects in sign spotting ** Invited Speaker: David P. Corina: Recognition of Sign Language and Human Actions in Deaf Signers * Invited Speaker: Diane Lillo-Martin: The sign language module * Invited Speaker: Karen Emmorey The psycholinguistics of signed and spoken languages: How biology affects processing
