Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2004

Meeting Description:

Human natural languages are biologically based, cognitively motivated,
affectively rich, socially shared, grammatically organized symbolic
systems. They provide the principal semiotic means for the complexity
and diversity of human cultural life. As has long been recognized, no
single discipline or methodology is sufficient to capture all the
dimensions of this complex and multifaceted phenomenon, which lies at
the heart of what it is to be human. The goal of this conference is
to contribute to situating the study of language in a contemporary
interdisciplinary dialogue. Many of the relevant disciplines have made
highly significant theoretical, methodological and empirical advances
during the last decade. We call for contributions from scholars and
scientists in anthropology, biology, linguistics, philosophy,
psychology, semiotics, cognitive and neurosciences, who wish both to
impart their insights and findings, and learn from other
disciplines. Preference will be given to submissions which emphasize
interdisciplinarity, the interaction between culture, mind and
language, and/or multi-methodological approaches in language sciences.
Topics include but are not limited to: � Biological and cultural
evolution and language � Comparative study of communication systems
� Cognitive and cultural schematization in language � Emergence of
language in ontogeny and phylogeny � Language in multi-modal
communication � Language and normativity � Language and thought,
emotion and consciousness International Organizing Committee � Carmen
