25-27 August 2014, Concept Types and Frames in Language, Cognition and Science (CTF 2014), Duesseldorf, Germany

Date: 25-27 August 2014
Location: Duesseldorf, Germany
Deadline: 15 April 2014

The 4th conference on "*Concept Types and Frames in Language, Cognition, and Science*" (CTF'14) will take place on 25--27 August 2014 at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany. The conference is intended as an interdisciplinary platform that contributes to the development of a general theory of the structure of representation. Special focus is given to accounts using frames understood as recursive attribute-value structures with functional attributes. The topics range from formalisms to describe frames and their ontological interpretation to applications of frames in the modeling of dynamic aspects of concept formation in science and cognition and the description of natural language semantics.

We invite submission of abstracts for 25min oral presentations (plus 10min discussion). Deadline: 15h of April 2014. Conference Topics:
- The structure of representations in cognition
- Attribute-value structures, type signatures, and constructional schemas

- Coercion, conceptual shifts, and co-composition
- Dynamic models of verb semantics
- Typological aspects of NP semantics
