6 - 12 August 2018, Summer School and Workshop "Concepts in Action - Representation, Learning & Application" (CARLA), Osnabrueck, Germany

Date: 6 - 12 August 2018
Location: Osnabrueck, Germany
Deadline: Sunday 20 May 2018

The summer school will bring together researchers from different disciplines with the goal of providing participants with knowledge about concept research outside of their own fields and to initiate interdisciplinary exchanges and research. The subsequent and co-located international workshop provides an excellent opportunity to present and discuss ongoing research on concepts.

Both events will focus on (but not be restricted to) three core questions: How can we formally describe and model concepts? Where do concepts come from, and how are they acquired? How are concepts used in cognitive tasks?

Both the school participants and external researchers are invited to submit abstracts to the workshop for oral or poster presentations. The organizers invite ontributions from all fields related to cognitive science, including (but not limited to) linguistics, artificial intelligence, psychology, philosophy, logic, and computer science. 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, Learning, and Application.
