ABOUT PROTOLANG
The Protolang conference series creates an interdisciplinary platform for
scholarly discussion on the origins of symbolic communication distinctive of
human beings.
The thematic focus of Protolang is on delineating the genetic, anatomical,
neuro-cognitive, socio-cultural, semiotic, symbolic and ecological
requirements for evolving (proto)language. Sign use, tools, cooperative
breeding, pointing, vocalisation, intersubjectivity, bodily mimesis,
planning and navigation are among many examples of such possible factors
through which hominins have gained a degree of specificity that is not found
in other forms of animal communication and cognition.
We aim at identifying the proximate and ultimate causes as well as the
mechanisms by which these requirements evolved; evaluating the
methodologies, research tools and simulation techniques; and enabling
extended and vigorous exchange of ideas across disciplinary borders.

ORGANIZERS
Protolang 6 is organized by the Applied Evolutionary Epistemology Lab and
the Primate Cognition Research Group of the Center for Philosophy of Science
of the Department for History and Philosophy of Science of the Faculty of
Science of the University of Lisbon; the William James Center for Research

Vida); the Católica Research Center for Psychological, Family and Social
Well-Being of the Catholic University of Lisbon (Universidade Católica
Portuguesa); and the Portuguese Association for Archaeological Investigation
(APIA - Associação Portuguesa de Investigação Arqueológica).

the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology; FCiências.ID, the
Association for the Investigation and Development of the Sciences of the
Faculty of Science of the University of Lisbon; SEAC - the European Society
