The special theme of the conference is Social Life and Meaning Construction.

We call for contributions from scholars and scientists in anthropology,
biology, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, semiotics, semantics, social
interaction, discourse analysis, cognitive and neuroscience, who wish both

the interaction between social life, culture, mind and language, and/or
multi-methodological approaches in language and communication sciences.
