Meeting Description:

Compositionality, Concepts and Cognition - An Interdisciplinary
Conference in Cognitive Science 

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

Compositionality, Concepts and Cognition 
An Interdisciplinary Conference in Cognitive Science 
D�sseldorf, Germany
February 28 to March 3, 2004

http://www.phil.uni-duesseldorf.de/thphil/compositionality

CONFERENCE AIM

The conference on compositionality is to take place at Heinrich Heine
University D�sseldorf, Germany, from February 28 to March 3, 2004.

Compositionality is a key feature of structured representational
systems, be they linguistic, mental or neuronal. A system of
representations is called compositional just in case the semantic
values of complex representations are determined by the semantic
values of their parts.

The conference brings together internationally renowned scholars from
various disciplines of the cognitive sciences, including philosophers,
psychologists, linguists, computer scientists and neuro
scientists. The speakers will address the issue of compositionality
from very different perspectives. It is the aim of the conference to
further the exchange of views on compositionality across the
disciplines and to explore the implications and conditions of
compositionality as a property of representational systems in the
study of language, mind and brain.
