General information about the Symposium:

The 10th Symposium for Cognition, Logic and Communication, to be held at the University of Latvia in Riga on September 12-13, 2014, will
focus on the cognitive processing of space, its cognitive and formal representation, and its linguistic encoding. We will explore the content
and the scope of spatial cognition and how universal it is. The impact of non-spatial factors on spatial cognition and transformations of spatial
cognition into non-spatial domains will be discussed. Scale-dependency of spatial cognition and differences between small-scale and large-
scale spatial cognition will be explored. The syntax and semantics of locative and other spatial expressions will be examined, along with their
relations to cognitive structures of spatial representation.

The symposium is co-hosted by the Center for Cognitive Sciences and Semantics of the University of Latvia in collaboration with the
Department of Philosophy, Northwestern University, IL, USA.
