We are also still taking proposals for conference workshops (see below). The next International Conference of the UK Cognitive Linguistics Association (UK-CLC) will take place at the University of Birmingham from 27 to 30 July 2020. The conference will welcome contributions from all fields of cognitive linguistics, as well as from related fields more broadly concerned with language and cognition.

CALL FOR PAPERS
We are inviting paper submissions, as well as workshop proposals (see below). The deadline for paper submissions is 10 January 2020.
We aim to cover a wide range of research including, but not limited to, the following topics:
Functional and usage-based approaches to language Cognitive grammar and construction grammar Cognitive/constructionist approaches to linguistic diversity and typology Metaphor, metonymy, blends and other forms of figurative language Cognitive semantics and frame semantics Prototypes and categorization Cognitive discourse analysis Cognitive pragmatics Cognitive semiotics Cognitive approaches to historical linguistics Language evolution Language acquisition Experimental semantics and pragmatics Sign language research Linguistic relativity Language and space Language and perception Gesture and multimodality Iconicity Embodied cognition and situated cognition Cognitive linguistics is by definition highly interdisciplinary, and so in addition to primarily linguistic research, we also invite language related submissions that are based on disciplines such as (cognitive and social) psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, anthropology, biology, artificial intelligence, and discourse and communication studies.
Talks will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion. There will also be a poster session. The language of the conference is English.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words (excluding references) should be submitted using EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ukclc2020 <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ukclc2020> All abstracts will be subject to double-blind peer review by an international scientific committee (and should therefore not contain author names). Participants will be allowed to present at most one talk (as a single or first author) and one poster. However, there is no restriction on the number of co-authored papers. Upon submission, you will be asked to indicate if you intend the submission for a talk or a poster.
If you require a BSL interpreter, please get in contact with the organisers.
UKCLC 2020 will host a selection of workshops on 27th July 2020, the day before the conference. We are calling for workshop proposals related to any theme from the main conference, as well as skill-based topics (e.g. corpus linguistics, reproducible research methods, data visualization, statistics, professional development, gesture analysis, multimodal data analysis, video annotation). The workshops will be 3 hours long, which may be structured as suitable for the topic.
Workshop proposals should contain a maximum 300-word summary of the topic and its importance to cognitive linguistics, as well as brief summaries (2-3 sentences) of the specific contributions of proposed speakers. Please be specific about how you plan to organize the 3 hours.
Proposals – and any questions – should be emailed to Marcus Perlman at <>m.perlman at bham.ac.uk <mailto:m.perlman at bham.ac.uk>. The deadline for submission is 10 January 2020. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
