Meeting Description:

We would like to kindly invite you to attend the upcoming workshop on 'Color in Concepts: Representation and Processing of Color in Language and Cognition'. The workshop will take place in Düsseldorf on June 2-3, 2014, and is supported by the DFG Collaborative Research Centre 991.

We seek to provide a platform to discuss and share ideas about, among other things, the following questions: Are color features involved in conceptual representations? What is the influence of color and color knowledge on processing in language production and comprehension? How does color contribute to early visual perception and object recognition? And how does the phenomenon of synesthesia relate to the conceptual representation of color?

We hope the workshop will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss recent empirical findings in a highly interdisciplinary scientific environment.

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are welcome for 20-minute presentations (excluding discussion time) and poster presentations addressing theoretical or empirical issues connected to color representation and processing, be it from a (neuro-)psychological, linguistic, or philosophical perspective. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cognitive representation of color and color features
- Processing of color features in language production and comprehension
- The contribution of color to object recognition
- Synesthetic experiences related to color
- Philosophy of color perception, epistemology and representation

Please submit anonymous abstracts of max. 500 words (including references) to cic2014psycholinguistik.eu. All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers.

The submission deadline is April 10, 2014.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by May 1, 2014.

We are looking forward to receiving your abstracts, and hope you will join us in Düsseldorf!
