*Research sessions

In addition to the modules, the research sessions offer participants the opportunity to present and discuss their work and receive constructive feedback from renowned experts presenting at the summer school. Participants attending the summer school are invited to submit their contributions for the research workshop during the afternoons. Contributions can be pre- or post-doctoral research either 'work in progress' or already finished projects.

This activity is not mandatory for attendees of the Summer School.

However, as a novelty of this year's edition, the best presentation will receive the BSBM award!

This award is sponsored by the journal Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, Cambridge University Press.
