We are delighted to announce that, despite the global pandemic, the XII. Dubrovnik Conference on Cognitive Science (DUCOG) will go ahead in an online format.

Conference theme: Linguistic and cognitive foundations of meaning
Dates: May 19-21, 2021 (from 4pm to 9pm CET)
Venue: online in both synchronous and asynchronous formats

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.

The live program will consist of talks by the invited speakers and contributed presentations, as well as discussion sessions. We solicit abstract submissions for two streams of contributed presentations:

(i) talks presented live on topics closely related to the conference theme, and
(ii) asynchronous presentations in free formats on any topics in cognitive science.

Abstract submissions will be accepted until March 31, 2021 with notifications by April 19th. Please indicate your preference for live vs. asynchronous presentation during submission.

Invited speakers include:

Madina Bedny - Johns Hopkins University (US) 

Susan Carey – Harvard University (US)

Jennifer Culbertson – University of Edinburgh (UK)

Jean-Rémy Hochmann - CNRS-ISCMJ, Université Lyon 1 (France)

Gary Lupyan - University of Wisconsin-Madison (US)

Asifa Majid - University of York (UK)

Paul Pietroski - Rutgers University (US)

Uli Sauerland - Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (Germany)

Alexis Wellwood - University of Southern California (US)
