Due to global pandemic conditions, DUCOG 2021 will take place online between May 19-21.
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.
Due to the online format, we are introducing two streams for contributed presentations. One stream will involve a selected number of live talks to the whole conference audience; while the other, bigger stream will involve asynchronous presentations with pre-loaded presentation materials and the possibility for focused exchanges with presenters.
