Dear colleagues,

please find attached the 2ND CFP for the interdisciplinary workshop for 
young researchers „LINKING LANGUAGE TO MOTOR CONCEPTS", held on FRIDAY, 
10TH OF JUNE 2016 IN VIENNA (see call for papers attached). The deadline 
for abstract submission is MAI 15TH, 2016.

In this INTERDISCIPLINARY WORKSHOP, we aim at bringing together young 
researchers (including particularly, but not limited to researchers from 
the University of Vienna) to discuss their work with experts from 
various fields. We particularly would like to encourage young 
researchers from the cognitive sciences: linguistics, neuroscience, 
artificial intelligence, anthropology, philosophy and psychology who 
work in the domains of LANGUAGE and / or MOTOR COGNITION.

Workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

COGNITION in the fields of linguistics, neuroscience, artificial 
intelligence, philosophy, psychology, anthropology

  * cognitive mechanisms involved in the relation between the LANGUAGE 
SYSTEM and the CONCEPTUAL SYSTEM (in particular motor cognition) such as 
eye-hand coordination, haptic perception, motor-concept variation in 
action verbs, motor planning, object detection...
  * the PRODUCTION, PERCEPTION and UNDERSTANDING of (referential) 
language and motor gestures: e. g. pointing, grasping, touching.

The presentations will be held in focus groups with ample room for 
discussion and constructive interdisciplinary feedback on the individual 
PhD projects. We also invite researchers and students with an interest 
in the topic who do not give a presentation! By this workshop we attempt 
to advance and foster the interdisciplinary (young academics) research 
community in Vienna.

As KEYNOTE SPEAKERS and discussants we may announce (abstracts attached 
to the cfp):

  * DAVID PEETERS, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, 
keynote: "The power of pointing in linking language to the world".
  * MARKUS VINCZE, Automation and Control Institute (ACIN), Faculty of 
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Technical University 
of Vienna, keynote: "Human and Robot Object Grasping".

The deadline for abstract submission is MAI 15TH, 2016.

Kind regards,

Juliane Fink & Timo Ahlers (organizers),
Department of German in cooperation with the Cognitve Science Research 
Platform, University of Vienna and the Austrian Centre for Digital
