Meeting Description: The 4th conference on 'Concept Types and Frames in Language, Cognition, and Science' (CTF’14) will take place on 25–27 August 2014 at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany. The conference is intended as an interdisciplinary platform that contributes to the development of a general theory of the structure of representation. Special focus is given to accounts using frames understood as recursive attribute-value structures with functional attributes. The topics range from formalisms to describe frames and their ontological interpretation to applications of frames in the modeling of dynamic aspects of concept formation in science and cognition and the description of natural language semantics.
