Tomsk State University will hold its 1st Tomsk Workshop on Cognitive Linguistics and Pragmatics (TOWOCOLP) on Tuesday, October 27, 2015. The bi-annual workshop has two goals. First, it intends to give an account on the latest research on how cognitive approaches affect the field of pragmatics by inviting internationally recognized experts in the field. Second, the workshop aims to bring together scholars from Russia with researchers from other parts of the world on a forum where they can exchange ideas and discuss their ongoing research with one another.

The format of the workshop is as follows. Each invited speaker will get a 90 minute session that consists of a 50 minutes lecture and a 40 minute question and answer session (QA). The session is chaired by a Russian scholar whose main task is to present the speaker and facilitate discussion.
