Call for papers

Object and event perception are core features of human cognitive processing. Further, these core human cognitive abilities may be reflected differently in language and in perception. This symposium aims to integrate perspectives from different areas (including psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, computer science, AI, and philosophy). The symposium will focus primarily on the following topics, but is not limited to them:

Events and objects

Events in space and time

Event perception from a developmental perspective

Developmental origins of event and object perception

Neural principles of event and object perception

Perception of causality

Relations between objects and events

Typology of events and objects

Events in semantics

Abstracts of no more than 250 words are to be submitted by May 15 (extended deadline) (lpcs@lu.lv) (Abstracts should contain a brief description of relevant theory, research design and methods, and results.) Authors will be notified in the second half of May.
