Meeting Description:

Conference theme: Linguistic and cognitive foundations of meaning

Language and cognition are intimately linked, but debates about the exact nature of their relationship still occupy a central focus in cognitive science. Meaning provides an important window onto the interface between language and broader cognition: on one hand, language can be viewed as mapping onto pre-existing concepts, on the other hand, language can be thought of as a set of cues to meaning. Our invited program brings together an interdisciplinary set of speakers with diverse theoretical perspectives and empirical approaches to discuss issues at the interface of language and cognition within the domain of meaning.

Invited speakers include:
Marina Bedny - Johns Hopkins University (US)
Susan Carey - Harvard University (US)
Emmanuel Chemla - CNRS, LSCP, Ecole Normale Supérieure (France)
Jennifer Culbertson - University of Edinburgh (UK)
Jean-Rémy Hochmann - CNRS-ISCMJ, Université Lyon 1 (France)
Gary Lupyan - University of Wisconsin-Madison (US)
Asifa Majid - University of York (UK)
Paul Pietroski - Rutgers University (US)
Uli Sauerland - Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (Germany)
Alexis Wellwood - University of Southern California (US)

Call for Papers:

(ii) asynchronous presentations in free formats on any topics in cognitive science.

Abstract submissions will be accepted until March 31, 2021 with notifications by April 19. Submit abstracts with maximum 300 words. Selection will be based on quality and contribution to the topic of the conference. Please indicate your preference for live vs. asynchronous presentation during submission.
