Meeting Description: 

Applications are open for the 6th Empirical Methods in Cognitive Linguistics 
workshop, to be held at Case Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, 
Ohio, August 1 - 5, 2012. See https://sites.google.com/site/emcl6case/ for 
more information.

The goal of EMCL is to facilitate dialogue among language researchers with 
different methodological backgrounds, i.e. theorists, experimentalists, corpus 
linguists, etc. We do this by creating an environment where specialists learn 
from each other by developing a research project together where their various 
skills are combined.

Intended audience: Language researchers with an embodiment, situated 
cognition and/or cognitive linguistics background. No prior experimental or 
corpus training is required though an understanding of the theoretical issues 
is necessary. Participants can be at different early stages in their careers, 
i.e. graduate students, post-grads, post-docs, junior faculty, etc.

Workshop Format: During the course of a week, participants will join one of 5 
hands-on mini-labs. Each mini-lab will be responsible for completing a joint 
research project. A select group of students (max. 8 per group for a total of 
40) will be invited to participate. Each group will work with two researchers 
who will guide the group in selecting an idea for the group to investigate, 
structuring and organizing a research project, and carrying it out. The session 
will end with the presentation of findings and a general discussion.

Topics to be covered include
- Deciding on a research topic
- Transforming the research topic into a research question
- Developing experimental hypotheses and designing an experiment
- Data collection
- Statistical analysis and interpretation
- Presentation of findings to an audience
- post-Workshop write up of the research, as a brief article

Faculty Groups:
Group 1: Seana Coulson and Shelli Feist
Group 2: Daniel Casasanto and Todd Oakley
Group 3: Ben Bergen and Laura Casasanto 
Group 4: Fey Parrill and Vera Tobin
Group 5: Kensy Cooperrider and Michael Spivey

Application: Please see our website for details. Completed applications must 
be submitted to emcl6case at gmail.com by April 1, 2012.

Participation Fee:  $160. We have 1 tuition scholarship available for a student 
from Eastern Europe or a developing country which will be awarded by lottery.

This workshop is sponsored by the International Cognitive Linguistics 
Association (ICLA), http://www.cognitivelinguistics.org/
