Meeting Description: We would like to kindly invite you to attend the upcoming workshop on 'Color in Concepts: Representation and Processing of Color in Language and Cognition'. The workshop will take place in Düsseldorf on June 2-3, 2014, and is supported by the DFG Collaborative Research Centre 991.

We seek to provide a platform to discuss and share ideas about, among other things, the following questions: Are color features involved in conceptual representations? What is the influence of color and color knowledge on processing in language production and comprehension? How does color contribute to early visual perception and object recognition? And how does the phenomenon of synesthesia relate to the conceptual representation of color?

We hope the workshop will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss recent empirical findings in a highly interdisciplinary scientific environment.
