Keynote Speakers:

The DComm Project in collaboration with ISTC-CNR and Gest_lan_d Project are
pleased to announce the Conference ''Language as a Form of Action'' to be held
in the Sala Convegni of CNR (Piazzale A. Moro), Rome Italy, June 21-23, 2017.

The aim of the conference is to approach gesture and sign language research in
an interdisciplinary way by bringing together researchers working on these
topics from the fields of linguistics, neuroscience, developmental psychology,
developmental robotics, philosophy, and other related disciplines. We aim to
explore the concept of ''language'' in its full complexity, i.e., by
considering the interaction of vocal and manual (including non-manual
features) modalities in spoken languages as well as in signed languages. The
core idea of the conference is based on the considerations posed by Adam
Kendon, in particular, in his recent article ''Semiotic diversity in utterance
production and the concept of 'language'' (2014).

Conference Language: English, International Signs and Italian Sign Language.
Sign language interpreters (International Signs and Italian Sign Language)
will be available.

Registration will open on March 31, 2017

Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by two referees. The scientific

oral presentations will be considered for poster presentations. Deadline for
notification of acceptance is set to March 31.

Authors who submit abstracts that are accepted will be required to pay the
same registration fee for the conference that all attendees are required to
pay. Since only the abstracts of registered presenting authors will be
included in the final programme, we expect that the first author of the
accepted abstract will register for the conference by May 15 (i.e., the
deadline of the Early Bird registration fee).
