12-13 September 2014, 10th international symposium of cognition, logic and communication: Perspectives on Spatial Cognition, Riga, Latvia

Date: 12-13 September 2014
Location: Riga, Latvia
Deadline: 15 February 2014

The 10th Symposium for Cognition, Logic and Communication, to be held at the University of Latvia in Riga on September 12-13, 2014, will focus on the cognitive processing of space, its cognitive and formal representation, and its linguistic encoding. We will explore the content and the scope of spatial cognition and how universal it is. The impact of non-spatial factors on spatial cognition and transformations of spatial cognition into non-spatial domains will be discussed. Scale-dependency of spatial cognition and differences between small-scale and large-scale spatial cognition will be explored. The syntax and semantics of locative and other spatial expressions will be examined, along with their relations to cognitive structures of spatial representation.

We welcome contributions from all fields including cognitive science, psychology, linguistics, computer science, and philosophy. Interdisciplinary contributions are very much welcome. In addition to individual papers, the scientific committee will be considering proposals for 2-hour sub-symposia including 3-4 contributions. The deadline for submission is 15 february 2014.
