Theme of the conference: Establishing Cognitive Semiotics

Over the past two decades or so, a number of researchers from semiotics, linguistics, cognitive science and related fields, from several European and North American research centres, have experienced the needs to combine theoretical knowledge and methodological expertise in order to be able to tackle challenging questions concerning the nature of meaning, the role of consciousness, the unique cognitive features of mankind, the interaction of nature and nurture in development, and the interplay of biological and cultural evolution in phylogeny. The product of these collaborations has been the emergence of the field of Cognitive Semiotics, with its own journal (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/cogsem) and academic association. The conference aims both to celebrate this, and to look forward into possibilities for further development.

Plenary Speakers:

Søren Brier, Copenhagen Business School
Merlin Donald, Queens University
Brian MacWhinney, Carnegie Mellon University	
Cornelia Müller, European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder)

Call for Papers:

We invite the submission of 400 word abstracts for one of the three categories: 

1. Oral presentations (20 min presentation + 5 minute discussion)

In case the theme session is not accepted, individual abstracts will be reviewed as submissions for oral presentations.)

The abstracts can be related, though need not be restricted, to the following topics:

- Biological and cultural evolution of human cognitive specificity

- Evolutionary perspectives on altruism
- Experimental semiotics
