Call for abstracts

Cogling days 4, Antwerp, 17th and 18th December 2010

Biannual meeting of the Belgian Netherlands Cognitive Linguistics Association (BeNeCLA)


After three fruitful meetings in Utrecht (2004), Leuven (2006) and Leiden (2008), Antwerp is hosting the fourth biannual conference of the Belgian Netherlands Cognitive Linguistics Association (BeNeCLA, ). The event is jointly organized by the University of Antwerp and Lessius University College Antwerp on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th December 2010. The two-day conference offers a venue for researchers from the Low Countries to present and discuss their research results in the various strands of cognitive linguistics. It explicitly aims at offering junior researchers, including doctoral students and postdocs, the opportunity to present their (ongoing) work. All interested scholars working in the field of cognitive linguistics or related areas are invited to submit an abstract for the conference.
