About the Event

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
