The department organises a number of research seminars, and events for the general public. In addition, we host national and international conferences, and you will find further details on this page and by following the links on the left.
British Aphasiology Society Therapy Symposium to be held at City University London, 6 - 7 September 2012
In the tradition of the symposium, this will be a wonderful opportunity to focus on current aphasia therapy practice and to explore new developments in the field. In a new development we will also be inviting 5 minute speed presentations of novel therapy ideas. We hope that this range of presentations will make for a vibrant programme and engage participation from all sectors of the clinical and research community.
We look forward to welcoming you to London in 2012.

Lost for Words: Lost for Life?
A conference on SLCN in older children and young people
This conference took place 15-17 June 2011 and was hosted jointly by the Department of Language & Communication Science, City University London, and the two main charities who support children and young people with SLCN: I CAN and Afasic.
Information on the conference, including downloads of the delegate book, videos, talks and posters is available on the 'Lost for Words: Lost for Life?' conference pages.
IJLCD Winter Lecture
Each year, towards the end of the autumn term, the department hosts a lecture by a leader in the field of language and communication disorders, sponsored by the Interational Journal of Language and Communication Disorders. The speaker for 2010 was Prof. Maggie Snowling of the University of York, with a talk entitled "Intervention in Language and Literacy Disorders".
In December 2009, Prof. Bruce Tomblin of University of Iowa gave the IJLCD Winter Lecture entitled "Co-morbidly of Autism and SLI: Kinds, Kin or Confounds?". The event was attended by over 200 people, who included teachers, SLTs, academics, managers and charity representatives. The entire lecture video and Powerpoint slides are available for those unable to attend, or as a reminder for those who came.
Our research seminars are held on Thursday afternoons. There is no need to book a place at our seminars - they are free of charge, and all are welcome.
ESRC Festival of Social Science
Each spring we hold one or more events as part of the Economic and Social Research Council's Festival of Social Science. These events are free, and members of the pubic are particularly welcome.
