Call for abstracts

on 28 January 2015

We are pleased to announce the 5th edition of

Utterance Interpretation and Cognitive Models (UICM5)

held at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium, on 24 – 25 September 2015.
Submission deadline: April 1st, 2015
Notification of acceptance: June 1st, 2015

Invited Speakers:
Ton Dijkstra (Donders Institute/Radboud University Nijmegen)
Napoleon Katsos (University of Cambridge)
Istvan Kecskes (State University of New York)
Antonella Sorace (University of Edinburgh)

This edition focuses on the connection between bilingualism and semantics/pragmatics:

How does bilingualism influence utterance interpretation? Can we identify differences in semantic or pragmatic skills between monolinguals and bilinguals? How about bi-dialectals? What are the mechanisms leading to these differences? We welcome researchers from various backgrounds to share their work on cognition and interpretation and invite them to a lively discussion of views and results.

Abstracts are invited for oral presentations (20 min. presentation plus 10 min. for discussion) and poster presentations. Abstracts are restricted to one page A4 (including figures, tables, and references). Please leave out any identifying information from the abstract. The abstract should be submitted in pdf format to, with in the body of the email the title, author names, and affiliations. Please also indicate whether you want to be considered for an oral presentation, a poster presentation, or both. The deadline for submission is April 1st 2015. Abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee, and notifications of acceptance will be sent out around June 1st 2015.

We hope to see you in Brussels in September!

On behalf of the UICM5 Organizing committee,

Local organizers: Isabelle Lorge, Nicolas Ruytenbeek, Fanny Stercq, and Alma Veenstra
