8 th Circular





I apologize for not giving any news, but the situation at Covid 19 in Brazil has been very serious and teachers like me have been overwhelmed with the work of preparing classes for students who are isolated in their homes, having to study in very precarious conditions.

The main purpose of the 18th Circular is to inform you that the dead line for submitting abstracts for the presentation of posters and for the regular sessions have been extended to March 3rd, 2021. I reiterate that you check whether your name is correct, in the right Session or if it is not missing, in the Extended Provisional Program

The honorary members of ISAPL, Prof. Leonor Scliar-Cabral (Florianopolis, Brazil) and Prof. Maria da Graça Pinto (Porto, Portugal) along with the ISAPL Board members and the Presidents of the 12th International Congress, Profs. João Torrão and Maria Teresa Roberto (Aveiro, Portugal) welcome and invite all scholars and students interested in the area of Applied Psycholinguistics to participate in the Congress and in its scientific, social, and cultural activities. This important Scientific Meeting provides an exciting opportunity to share information on research with colleagues from around the world, integrating basic scientific research with practical applications for the benefit of human modern life.

The special emphasis topic of the Congress is on NEW PERSPECTIVES IN PSYCHOLINGUISTIC RESEARCH: LANGUAGE, CULTURE, TECHNOLOGIES, having in view what Cultural and Applied Psycholinguistics can offer for the benefit of our contemporary world.

We hope that the congress will attract a lot of scholars and colleagues working in practical areas, in basic research, or teaching in schools and universities, for a scientific, academic collaboration.

In this Circular, we will repeat a brief presentation about the University of Aveiro, which will host the event and give more information to facilitate your participation in the Congress.

In the 18th Circular, we repeat the Extended Provisional Program, with the objective of making adjustments, should the proponents so wish, as well as verifying whether any of the proposals no longer appears. Many of the announced abstracts still need reformulations that were requested, but we still have not received them.
