11th International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG11)

Construction grammars in and between minds, communities, computers

ICCG11 will take place at the University of Antwerp (UAntwerpen), Belgium, 20-22 August 2020. ICCG11 will cover a broad range of topics related to constructionist approaches to language. The conference also acts as a forum of discussion between approaches, including cognitive construction grammar, embodied construction grammar, fluid construction grammar, radical construction grammar, sign based construction grammar, frame semantics, or other approaches. The conference theme is: how do constructions model language in minds, communities, or computers? Submissions for presentations, posters, or workshops are particularly welcomed along the lines of this theme, but submissions may also be related to other aspects of constructionist linguistics.
