Meeting Description:

Zaragoza, 13 to 15 May 2004

First Call for Papers

The Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association (AELCO/SCOLA), a member
society of the International Cognitive Linguistics Association, has as
its main objective the promotion of research from a cognitive
linguistics perspective. There is, among its interests, a wide
spectrum of theoretical proposals based on the idea that language is
an integral part of cognition. At the same time, language reflects the
interaction of cultural, psychological, communicative and functional
aspects, and should be studied in the context of conceptualisation and
mental processing. AELCO/SCOLA's conferences take place every two
years. Past conferences were held in Alicante (1998), Madrid (2000),
and Valencia (2002).

Call for papers

We invite all interested scholars to contribute with papers applied to
the study of any language with a cognitive linguistics
approach. Papers will have a duration of twenty minutes plus five
minutes for discussion. The main topic of this 4th Conference will be
the study of the structural characteristics of natural language
categorization and other related areas of research like metaphor,
mental images, cognitive models, prototypicality, etc. In addition,
there will also be room for contributions dealing with other aspects
of cognitive linguistics such as, for instance, the conceptual
interaction between syntax and semantics, the functional principles of
linguistic organization or the relations between language and
thought. Interested authors should send three hard copies (by ordinary
mail) of the abstract to the address below and one electronic copy (in
Word or RTF format) to the e-mail address before
December 15, 2003. Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their
