CALL FOR PAPERS: 10th International Symposium of Cognition, Logic and Communication, 12-13 Sep 2014, Riga, LATVIA

The 10th Symposium for Cognition, Logic and Communication, to be held at the 
University of Latvia in Riga on September 12-13, 2014, will focus on the 
cognitive processing of space, its cognitive and formal representation, and its 
linguistic encoding. We will explore the content and the scope of spatial 
cognition and how universal it is.  The impact of non-spatial factors on 
spatial cognition and transformations of spatial cognition into non-spatial 
domains will be discussed. Scale-dependency of spatial cognition and 
differences between small-scale and large-scale spatial cognition will be 
explored. The syntax and semantics of locative and other spatial expressions 
will be examined, along with their relations to cognitive structures of spatial 

Further topics include (but are not limited to):
The patterns of conceptual representation of space
Perceptual determinants of spatial cognition
Development of spatial cognition
Interaction between linguistic and cognitive structures of spatial 
Lexical representations of directional and locative expressions
Generalization of spatial relations
Visual impact on spatial cognition
Multi-modal impact on spatial cognition
Geometric and topologic principles in spatial reasoning

We welcome contributions from all fields including cognitive science, 
psychology, linguistics, computer science, and philosophy.  Interdisciplinary 
contributions are very much welcome.

The symposium is co-hosted by the Center for Cognitive Sciences and Semantics 
of the University of Latvia in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy, 
Northwestern University, IL, USA.
