Second call

The DComm Project, ISTC-CNR and Gest_Lan_D Project are pleased to announce the upcoming Conference Language as a Form of Action, to be held at Sala Convegni - CNR in Rome, from June 21 to June 23 2017.

The conference aims to approach gesture and sign language research in an interdisciplinary way, by bringing together researchers working on these topics from the fields of linguistics, neuroscience, developmental psychology, developmental robotics, philosophy, and other related disciplines. We want to explore the concept of “language” in its full complexity, i.e., by considering the interaction of vocal and manual (including non-manual features) modalities in spoken languages as well as in signed languages. Further details on this conference are available at the following address:

Abstracts can be submitted from December 9 2016 to February 15 2017.
Registration to the conference is from March 31 2017 to June 16 2017 (Early bird rates apply only until May 15).
