Sign Language Interpretation

There will be interpretation from English to American Sign Language (ASL) for all the talks and the poster sessions. This has been possible thanks to the generous contributions of Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, NWO, the Donders Institute for Brain and Cognition, and the International Office at Radboud University.
