IWORDD: International Workshop On Reading and Developmental Dyslexia  
Thursday, May 5, 2016 12:00 AM - Saturday, May 7, 2016 12:00 AM
BILBAO, Spain

As part of its scientific activities, the Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (www.bcbl.eu) with the UPV-EHU are pleased to announce the second edition of IWORDD: International Workshop On Reading and Developmental Dyslexia. Our aim with this workshop is to promote exchange of ideas between world-class dyslexia experts through talks and round tables, and facilitate transfer of knowledge between practitioners and scientists. The ultimate goal is to understand the causes of dyslexia and improve detection protocols and remediation techniques. IWORDD will take place from Thursday May 5th to Saturday May 7th 2016 in Bilbao, Spain. The workshop is split into two parts, each of which should be registered for separately. In order to secure your place for this event, please REGISTER as soon as possible as the NUMBER OF PLACES IS LIMITED. CONFERENCE PROGRAM. Part One: IWORDD -- Theoretical Perspectives (May 5 and 6) For each of the two first days, the invited experts will discuss their perspectives on one hot theoretical issue of great interest for the current state of the field. More particularly, this edition of IWORDD will focus on featuring research investigating reading and its disorders using cutting-edge neuroimaging approaches. The invited speakers will address the issue of the neurogenetic bases of developmental dyslexia (May 5) and of the remediation of developmental dyslexia and the related brain changes (May 6). The following renowned speakers in the field will contribute to the high quality of IWORDD via a dynamic format centered around keynote lectures and round tables. This will be complemented by talks and poster presentations selected from abstract submissions. Note that the language for these two days will be English.
