Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting Description: Making meaning through multi-semiotic resources.

In this 7th edition of ICOM, it is time to pause, reflect and bring
together the developments in multimodality research over the last two
decades. ICOM aims to include a range of different areas in its review of
multimodality, such as film studies, electronics in education and robotics,
architecture, design, the creative industries, animation and any other
fields related to communication.

Our objectives are to take stock of what has been done up to now and
discover what new ideas are being explored, as well as give current
researchers an opportunity to exchange ideas, share knowledge and build new
bridges in terms of collaboration. For research students ICOM will present
new ideas and the opportunity to learn from the comments of well
established scholars.
