Call for abstracts 
We are pleased to announce the first International Workshop on Bilingualism and Cognitive Control to take place from the 15th to the 17th of May, 2013 in Krakow, Poland. The workshop will be hosted at the Jagiellonian University Guesthouse (http://www.dg.uj.edu.pl/przegorzaly). Located in the beautiful Wolski Woods about 5 km from the center of Krakow, it is an ideal place to discuss our research and build new collaborations. The guesthouse is also able to host families, and we will be providing on-site childcare. 

Invited Speakers (confirmed): 
Teresa Bajo (University Granada, Spain) 
Ellen Bialystok (York University, Canada) 
David W. Green (University College London, UK) 
Judith F. Kroll (The Pennsylvania State University, USA) 
Viorica Marian (Northwestern University, USA)  

Call for Posters and Oral submissions: 
Submissions are being sought on the topics of bilingual language control and bilingual cognitive control, broadly construed. Submissions that draw links between these two areas are especially welcomed. The reported project may be completed or it may be in progress. The workshop has been structured to maximize interactions between scientists, and so most submissions will be considered for poster sessions, which will form an integral part of the workshop. A limited number of submissions will also be invited as oral presentations. Please contact the conference organizers for space availability if you are interested in attending but will not be presenting.
