Call for papers


We welcome papers reporting recent research on the central question of Cognitive Linguistics: How is experience (cognition, sensations, emotions) conceptualized and expressed in different languages, in various cultural and situational contexts?

Besides three plenary lectures by Timothy Colleman (University of Ghent), Asifa Majid (Radboud University/MPI) and Hans-Jörg Schmid (LMU München), CogLing7 offers slots of 30 minutes for regular presentations. There is room for two theme sessions (4 or 5 papers each) and a poster session will also be part of the program. The social program includes a visit to lab research facilities, a reception and a conference dinner.

Abstracts (max 500 words, in English, anonymous) and proposals for theme sessions should be sent to
Please indicate your preference for a paper or poster presentation.
If your abstract is part of a theme session, please indicate this in your submission.
