Mental Lexicon 2022

Dear friends and colleagues, 
We would like to announce a few updates regarding upcoming conference plans. 
1. In view of the COVID-19 related restrictions on public gatherings and travel, we cancelled our plans for the the in-person Mental Lexicon conference in 2021.
2. The in-person Mental Lexicon conference is scheduled for October 11th-14th, 2022. It will take place in the Queen’s Landing Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. We will announce a new deadline for abstract submission in the Fall of 2021, giving you ample time for the preparation and submission of your contributions to the conference. Please monitor this website ( for further updates on the Mental Lexicon conference.
3. We recognize that current restrictions on research activities and the cancellation of many training events have affected students particularly strongly. This recognition led to creation of a new virtual Words in the World (WoW) International Conference, held online in October 16-18, 2020. Thanks to the success of the first edition of the WoW conference, we will be organizing this conference in the Fall of 2021.
All further information about the WoW International Conference will be made available at

On behalf of the organizing committee,

Lori Buchanan
