Meeting Description:

5th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE SPANISH COGNITIVE LINGUISTICS
ASSOCIATION (AELCO)

Cognitive Linguistics as a Cognitive Science
Murcia (Spain), 19-21 October 2006
http://www.um.es/lincoing/aelco2006/

*EXTENDED DEADLINE: MONDAY, 1 MAY 2006*

Murcia, 19-21 October 2006

The Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association (AELCO-SCOLA) aims to promote research within the cognitive linguistics tradition. This approach holds that language is an integral part of cognition and, therefore, should be understood in terms of conceptualization and mental processing. More generally, cognitive linguistics attempts to integrate sociocultural and perceptual aspects of cognition with linguistic form and function.

Following the AELCO conferences in Alicante (1998), Madrid (2000), Valencia (2002) and Zaragoza (2004), the 5th International Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Conference will be held at the University of Murcia (October 19-21, 2006).

PLENARY SPEAKERS

- Antonio Barcelona (University of Murcia)
- Benjamin Bergen (University of Hawaii at Manoa)
- Maria Josep Cuenca (University of Valencia)
- Julio Santiago (University of Granada)
- Dan Slobin (University of California at Berkeley)
- Anatol Stefanowitsch (University of Bremen)

CALL FOR PAPERS

We cordially invite researchers working within the cognitive linguistics paradigm to submit paper proposals. Special priority will be given to those papers that show close connections with the other cognitive sciences (e.g., c ognitive psychology and psycholinguistics, philosophy of mind, neuroscience or cognitive anthropology).

Papers may be presented as either communications or posters. Communications will be 20 minutes long plus a five-minute discussion period. Posters should be a maximum of 1.5 meters tall by 1.5 meters wide. Poster sessions will be divided into two groups: one for research projects and another for individual researchers. Posters will receive very prominent attention from the organizers.

There will be a prize awarded to the best poster and pre- and post-doctoral papers. For details, see the conference website (http://www.um.es.lincoing/aelco2006).

Proposals for communications and posters should be sent to ''aelco2006um.es'' before April 15, 2006. Each abstract should be sent as a file attachment and comply with the following requirements:
