Meeting Description:

The second edition of the Brussels Conference on Utterance Interpretation and
Cognitive Models will take place on July 19-21, 2008. While the first edition
addressed the issue of the semantics/pragmatics interface from a cognitive
perspective, this time we wish to adopt a broader perspective. The conference
aims at reaching across disciplinary boundaries and bringing together
researchers who, though belonging to different schools or traditions, all take a
view of interpretation that is informed by cognitive concerns. We are convinced
that a better understanding of how utterances come to be endowed with meaning
calls for collaboration between various subfields of linguistics -- syntax,
formal semantics, cognitive linguistics, pragmatics, evolutionary linguistics
--, as well as with other disciplines, such as developmental and cognitive
psychology, cognitive sciences, and philosophy of language. However, whatever
the theoretical background and the empirical phenomena to be accounted for, in
our view the ultimate test for any theory of utterance interpretation is that it
should be psychologically plausible. We hope that the second conference on
Utterance Interpretation and Cognitive Models will help popularize this idea.
