=========================================================================
International Interdisciplinary Conference
"Concept Types and Frames in Language, Cognition, and Science" (CTF’12)
=========================================================================

Düsseldorf (GER), August 22–24, 2012
http://www.sfb991.uni-duesseldorf.de/concept-types-and-frames-in-language-cognition-and-science/

Organized and financed by
DFG Coordinated Research Centre CRC 991/SFB 991
“The Structure of Representations in Language, Cognition, and Science”
http://www.sfb991.uni-duesseldorf.de/en/sfb991/

Aims and scope
---------------
A sequel to CTF’07 and CTF’09, CTF’12 is the third interdisciplinary 
conference to contribute to the development of a general frame theory of 
human concepts. The conference explores the application of frames in 
linguistics and other sciences. It discusses foundational issues for the 
development of a theory of frames from the perspectives of general and 
computational linguistics, mathematics, cognitive psychology, cognitive 
neuroscience, ontology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science.

Invited speakers
-----------------
Hanne Andersen
Lawrence Barsalou
Walter Bisang
Jean Mandler
Rolf Zwaan

Frames
-------
CTF’12 explores fundamental aspects of a formal theory of frames 
understood as recursive attribute-value structures with functional 
attributes. The aspects include representation and model-theoretic 
interpretation, attributes and value types, and appropriate frame 
structures for different types of concepts. A special focus will be on 
dynamic aspects of frame theory: modeling dynamic frame components for 
event and process frames; exploring operations on frames such as type 
shifts and frame composition.

Cognition
----------
CTF’12 explores empirical evidence for and consequences of the frame 
approach. It addresses the distinction of types of concepts, in 
particular relational and functional nominal concepts. Major topics 
include the grounding of concepts in the sensory-motor system and 
dynamic aspects of concept formation.

Language
---------
CTF’12 explores the application of a formal­ized theory of frames at 
various levels of linguistic description: lexical semantics of the 
different conceptual types of nouns and verbs, deep lexical 
decomposition, semantics of word formation, the syntax-semantics 
interface, syntactic and semantic composition, and anaphora and 
coherence in discourse.

Science
--------
CTF’12 explores the applications of the frame approach in various fields 
of institutional categorization: e.g., the evolution of the frame notion 
in the history of philosophy; scientific frames and paradigm shifts; 
frames for legal concepts; frames in applied ontology; a frame model of 
the mind; and frame description of psychiatric disorders.
