22 - 23 September 2020, Second international workshop "Concepts in Action: Representation, Learning, and Application" (CARLA 2020), Bolzano, Italy

Date: 22 - 23 September 2020
Location: Bolzano, Italy
Deadline: Thursday 30 April 2020

"Concepts in Action: Representation, Learning, and Application" (CARLA) is an international workshop aimed at fostering interdisciplinary exchange about research on concepts.  Although the workshop is open for research on any aspect of concepts, there exists a set of core topics that are of special interest:

 - Representation: How can we formally describe and model concepts?
  - Learning: Where do concepts come from and how are they acquired?
 - Application: How are concepts used in cognitive tasks?

Invited Speakers: Mattis List and Marianna Bolognesi.

We invite concept researchers to submit abstracts to the workshop for oral or poster presentations. We invite contributions from all fields related to cognitive science, including (but not limited to) linguistics, artificial intelligence, psychology, philosophy, logic, and computer science. The extended abstracts can use up to three pages (including references) and should be uploaded as pdf based on a template downloadable from the conference website.
