As of Fall 2020, we are planning to hold a traditional, in-person conference in Dubrovnik. Please keep in mind that DUCOG 2021 is contingent on the global pandemic conditions.
In case we are unable to hold the conference in Dubrovnik, we will announce further details before registration starts.
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.
The conference is going to take place on 20-23 May 2021, in the Center for Advanced Studies of Dubrovnik,
located by the Adriatic sea at the foot of the old city of Dubrovnik (Croatia), a UNESCO world heritage site.
