European Symposium on Fluency Disorders

There is a new conference coming up in Belgium in April 2008: the European Symposium on Fluency Disorders: see here for more information and a detailed program of speakers. The conference is organised by Kurt Eggers who works as a lecturer and clinician at the Lessius University College. I met him at the Oxford Dysfluency Conference in 2005, I think. He is currently doing a PhD on the role of temperament in stuttering and his PhD supervisor is Luc de Nil.

I will attend. It is only 2 and a half hours away from Luxembourg. The most interesting speakers for me are Luc de Nil with a summary of past brain research, and Nicole Ambrose on possible genetic factors for subtyping. Some talks are given via video conference link which is an interesting concept. I'll be curious how it works out!
