Welcome to the ESLP2016 official website

The book of abstracts is now available here.

We are very happy to announce that 9th version of the Embodied and Situated Language Processing conference will be held in Villarrica/Pucón in southern Chile between the 6th and the 9th of October, 2016.


The Embodied and Situated Language Processing conference (ESLP) aims to bring together researchers working on the interaction of language and visual/motor processing in embodied, situated, and language-for-action research traditions. A further focus is on uniting converging and complementary evidence from three different methods (behavioral, neuropsychological, and computational). Download the Poster

Call for contributions

We invite submissions for both oral and poster presentations. Much as in previous years, the plan is to keep ESLP open to any research on situated and embodied language processing. However, each ESLP has also aimed to introduce a new focus topic. For 2016, the focus will be on "Learning and Education”. We therefore encourage and particularly welcome submissions related to these topics. Further details about submissions will be provided promptly in the conference website.
