Dear All,
due to a large number of requests, we are extending the submission deadline
for contributed talks:
September 10 (notifications of acceptance will be sent in the second half
of September); those who have submitted before August 25 will be notified
in the beginning of September.

14th International Symposium of Cognition, Logic and Communication
"Linking Senses: Cross-Modality in Perceptual Domains across Cultures"
University of Latvia
December 7, 2019

Keynote speakers include
Prof. Asifa Majid (University of York, UK)
Prof. Baingio Pinna (Sassari University, Italy)
Prof. Charles Spence (Oxford University, UK)

Crossmodal mappings describe the systematic links between different
stimulus features across perceptual modalities. Although crossmodal
mappings are well-documented, several sensory domains (e.g., odor, taste,
temperature) remain underexplored, and the relation of such mappings to
emotion and action requires further elucidation. In addition, important
questions still remain to be explored with regards to the
culture-dependency and universality of crossmodal associations, and their
development over the lifespan and across evolution.

The symposium invites submissions on the following topics, but is not
limited to them:

Links between perceptual domains, especially the lesser-explored sensory
Universality and culture dependency of perceptual modalities
The development of crossmodal associations
The cross-species consistency of crossmodal associations


Abstracts of 300 words: September 10 (notifications of acceptance will be
sent in the second half of September)

The symposium is organized by Laboratory for Perceptual and Cognitive
Systems, Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia in collaboration and
with support of Robert Blumberg (the honorary consul of the Republic of
Latvia in Illinois) and the University of Latvia Foundation. The conference
will include the Robert Blumberg Distinguished Lecture (given this year by
Professor Asifa Majid), founded and supported by Robert Blumberg, the
honorary consul of the Republic of Latvia in Illinois.
