Meeting Description:

We are happy to announce that we are organizing an expert workshop called 'Language, Interaction and Cognition' which will take place on June 20th, 2011 at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. This Expert Workshop is funded by an NWO Vidi grant awarded to Esther Pascual for the project 'The Conversation Frame: Linguistic Forms and Communicative Functions in Discourse', as well as by the CLCG at the University of Groningen.

We are interested in how the conversation frame is used in creative ways, and thus are organizing this workshop to discuss direct speech and fictive speech in a range of communicative environments. It is divided into three sessions: (i) direct speech; (ii) gesture and sign language; and (iii) aphasic conversation. Each session will be opened by a 30-minute plenary lecture by an expert in that subfield. After the lecture, we will have an open data session on the topic of the session in question, led by one of the organizers.

In order to have as lively and insightful a discussion as possible, we invite you to bring your own data, as well as any questions or insights you may have.

The Workshop will take place in Room A3 of the Academy Building at the University of Groningen. It is located at Broerstraat 5, 9712 CP Groningen, the Netherlands, and is around a 20-minute walk from Groningen's main train station. Participants may also chose to take city bus number 3 (direction: Vinkhuizen) from the main train station and step out at A-Kerkhof.

Registration is free of cost to participants. We are organizing a lunch which will cost 7.50 euros. Please send an e-mail by June 8, 2011 if you would like to join the workshop or lunch.
