Meeting Description:

SALC V, 2015
Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU) - Trondheim

The Fifth Conference of the Scandinavian Association for Language and Cognition (SALC V) will take place in Trondheim, August 19–21, 2015, and is hosted by The Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU).

The conference will be organized by the Scandinavian Association for Language and Cognition (SALC), and the Language and Cognition/LAPL research group at the Department of Language and Literature (NTNU).

The major goal of The Scandinavian Association for Language and Cognition (SALC) is to promote the study of the relationship between language and cognition. This involves any type of research in which language is not treated in isolation (e.g. as a ''module''), but both as based on structures and processes of general cognition and social cognition, and as affecting such structures and processes. The association is intended to be a forum for cooperation and exchange of ideas between disciplines, fields of study and theoretical frameworks.

Keynote Speakers:

Seana Coulson, University of California, San Diego
Kenny Coventry, University of East Anglia
Jeanine Treffers-Daller, University of Reading
Adele Goldberg, Princeton University
Carita Paradis, Lund University

The aim of the SALC Conference is to promote the cross-fertilization of linguistics and close fields, such as psychology, cognitive science, the social sciences, and education. We are aiming at presenting interdisciplinary perspectives from all of these fields and encourage submissions from all research areas addressing the interface between language and cognition.

Conference fees:

Faculty (SALC member) €150, faculty (non-member) €180
Student/PhD student (SALC member) 60 €, student/PhD student (non-member) €90

Information about payment details and deadlines will be distributed later to all accepted conference participants and will posted on the conference website.
