Meeting Description:

The conference aims to serve as a forum for discussion on the relationship between mind and language within the theoretical framework, applications and methods of Cognitive Linguistics. For this edition, special attention will be paid to different discourse types, new communicative contexts and to the role that cultural,social and historical features play in the representation of reality through language.

Call for Papers:

We particularly encourage participation with papers that promote a methodological advance and/or a rigorous application of Cognitive Linguistics premises to the following areas:

- Cultural linguistics
- Situated cognition
- Cross-linguistics studies
- Translation studies
- Genres and discourse types
- Multimodal contexts
- Cognitive Sociolinguistics

As well as other more general topics that have always been fostered by the Association such as:

- Structural characteristics of categorization systems in language (prototypicality, metaphor and metonymy, image schemas, etc.)
- Functional principles of linguistic organization
- Relationship between language and thought
- Conceptual interaction between syntax and semantics
- Experiential basis of language in use.

Proposals should clearly state research questions, method, data and expected results. They should not contain the names, affiliations or addresses of the authors. They will be submitted through the website of the conference and will be evaluated anonymously by members of the Scientific Committee

Languages of the conference: English and Spanish.
