Meeting Description:

The International Society for Gesture Studies (ISGS) announces the Fifth Conference of the International Society for Gesture Studies: The communicative body in development, to take place in Lund, Sweden, July 24-27, 2012.

The conference celebrates the tenth anniversary of the ISGS. Established in 2002, the ISGS is an international organization that gathers scholars interested in gesture and bodily communicative behaviour, different approaches to sign language, and communication in non-human species. Through its biennial conference series the ISGS constitutes a meeting place for researchers approaching the study of bodily communication from a range of different perspectives.

Plenary Speakers (confirmed):

Michael Corballis, University of Auckland
Jana Iverson, University of Pittsburgh

Spencer Kelly, Colgate University

Stefan Kopp, Bielefeld University

Lorenza Mondada, University of Basel

Wendy Sandler, University of Haifa

Call for Papers:

The theme of the Fifth Conference of ISGS is The Communicative Body in Development. Development is to be understood broadly as any change, typical or atypical, in bodily communicative behaviour across the lifespan, synchronically or diachronically, onto- and phylogenetically, and across species. The conference also welcomes all topics on bodily communication, studied in all settings, and from all theoretical and disciplinary perspectives.

We invite abstracts (max 300 words) of unpublished work for individual papers, posters, and thematic panels. Papers will be 30 minutes; 20 minutes for presentation and 10 for discussion. Thematic panels are welcome and encouraged. The thematic panels should focus on a well-defined research topic. Each panel will be allocated 2 hours, which should include opening and closing remarks, individual papers, discussants (if included) and general discussion. Posters are intended as a format for reports on work in progress.

Each author may submit no more than three abstracts: one as main author and two as co-author.

February 13, 2012: Deadline for all submissions

April 13, 2012: Notification of acceptance

July 24-27, 2012: Conference, starting in the morning July 24, closing in the afternoon on July 27
