CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: (In)Coherence of Discourse 4, 30-31 Mar 2017, Nancy, FRANCE

Program and registration form are now available !

The fourth (In)Coherence of discourse workshop will be held in the
University of Lorraine on March 30th and 31th, 2017.
The objective of the workshop is to discuss the latest advances in the
modelling of discourses, in particular the kind held with pathological
patients (e.g. schizophrenics). The adopted modelling paradigm is that
of formal semantics, which falls within the scope of both linguistics
and logic while also making ties to the philosophy of language.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
discourse comprehension and representation
experimental studies of non standard dialogues
formal accounts of dialogues
logic and reasoning
semantics / pragmatics interfaces
goals, intentions and commitments in dialogues
Cognitive Psychology
Psycholinguistics        mental illness and cognitive (in)coherence
radical interpretation
logicality and cognitive (in)coherence

Like the previous (In)Coherence of discourse workshops, the fourth
edition is organised by the SLAM (Schizophrenia and Language: Analysis
and Modelling) project. The SLAM project aims to systematize the study
of pathological conversations as part of an interdisciplinary approach
combining Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science and Philosophy. It
focuses particularly on conversations involving people with psychiatric
disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder).
