Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2006

Meeting Description:

Phraseology and Paremiology come together in a scientific and international meeting to welcome the ever growing number of scholars who study expressions and proverbs.

Within this context, we hope to bring together specialists from phraseological and paremiological fields in different languages, in an effort to unite, compare, analize and debate the multiple issues regarding fixed expressions that spark such interest among the scholars dedicated to their study (metalinguistics, contrastive and translation studies, lexicography, grammar, computational studies, psycholonguistics and didactics, semantics and pragmatics).The goal of this International Conference on Phraseology and Paremiology is to give a new boost to these two disciplines whose growth was confirmed with well-known success in previous conferences held both in Spain and elsewhere.

PLENARY SPEAKERS
We are pleased to announce the participation of the following plenary speakers:
Prof. Jean-Claude Anscombre (Université Paris XIII - France)
Prof. Harald Burger (Universität Zürich - Switzerland)
Prof. Gloria Corpas Pastor (Universidad de Málaga - Spain)
Prof. Xesús Ferro Ruibal (Centro Ramón Piñeiro para a Investigación en Humanidades – Santiago de Compostela, Spain)
Prof. Herón Pérez Martínez (Colegio de Michoacán - Mexico)

CALL FOR TUTORIAL AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

http://www.cogsci.rpi.edu/~rsun/cogsci2006/

TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

The tutorials at Cognitive Science 2006 will provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills from a broad range of areas in the field of cognitive science. Tutorial topics will be presented in a taught format and range from practical guidelines to academic issues and theory. This is the eighth year that tutorials in this format will be offered.

Tutorial participants will be from a wide range of the cognitive sciences, but they will be looking for insights into their own areas and summaries of other areas providing tools, techniques, and results to use in their own teaching and research.

Tutorials must present well established results, yesterday's results from your lab are not encouraged. They will tend to involve an introduction to technical skills or methods (e.g., cognitive modeling in ACT-R, Bayesian modeling, eyetracking, fMRI, methods of analyzing qualitative observational data). They are likely to include substantial review of material.

DURATION: Each tutorial is designed to be a half-day or full-day in duration. Half-day tutorials are about 3 hours long (not including breaks). Full day tutorials are about 6 hours long (not including breaks). Please indicate the duration of your proposed tutorial in your application.

AUDIENCE: Most tutorials should be at the introductory graduate school level or higher. That is, the tutorials should be accessible to postgraduate students, but should also assume a first degree in one of the cognitive sciences.

REVIEW PROCESS: Tutorial proposals will be evaluated by the tutorial committee on the basis of their estimated benefit for prospective participants and on their fit within the tutorials program as a whole.

Factors to be considered include relevance, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half-day or full-day tutorial format; use of presentation methods that offer participants direct experience with the material being taught; how much they might help unify cognitive science; teaching a skill or covering a topic that would not have another outlet; and past experience and qualifications of the instructors with their tutorial.

Selection is also based on the overall distribution of topics, approaches (overview, theory, methodology, how-to), audience experience levels, and specialties of the intended audiences.

PROPOSAL: If you want to submit a proposal, please follow the instructions at:

http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/keller/cogsci06/tutorials/

COMPENSATION: A budget of $125 will be awarded for each half-day tutorial that is taught, $250 for each full-day. If a tutorial has two or more instructors, the budget will be shared among them. Tutors will not be charged for attending their own tutorial. Tutors may bring a helper to the tutorial at no cost.

WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

The purpose of pre-conference workshops is to provide organizers and participants with an opportunity for an in-depth discussion on a specific topic important to cognitive science in general. Workshops can choose to concentrate on emerging research or cross-disciplinary topics, but can also discuss application issues.

Workshop notes should be assembled by the workshop organizers based on the input from workshop presenters. The workshop notes should be made available to workshop participants in printed form by the organizers themselves. They will use the same format as the proceedings of the main session of the Cognitive Science Conference, but will be distributed separately.

DURATION: Each workshop is designed to be a half-day or full-day in duration. Half-day workshops are about 3 hours long (not including breaks). Full day workshops are about 6 hours long (not including breaks). Please indicate the duration of your proposed workshop in your application.

REVIEW PROCESS: Each workshop proposal should contain all the information that the workshop chairs and the program committee need to judge the importance and quality of the workshop and the interest in the proposed topic. Each workshop may have one or more designated organizers and, possibly, a workshop program committee. Workshop organizers need to set up their own web site with the workshop materials, to be linked to from the Cognitive Science Conference web site.

PROPOSAL: If you want to submit a proposal, please follow the instructions at:
