The Second Conference of
the International Association for Cognitive Semiotics,
Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin, Poland
Cognitive semiotics is the study of meaning-making writ large: in language and by means of other sign vehicles, as well as in perception, and in action. Cognitive semiotics investigates the properties of our meaningful interactions with the surroundings – as well as those of other animals – in all domains, in the natural as well as in the social world. It integrates perspectives, methods and insights from cognitive science, cognitive linguistics and semiotics, placing signs and sign use (in the broadest sense) into the wider context of cognitive, social, and neurobiological processes, using experimental methods, as well as classical text analysis and theoretical disquisitions.
The International Association for Cognitive Semiotics (IACS) aims at the further establishment of Cognitive Semiotics as the trans-disciplinary study of meaning, combining concepts, theories and methods from the humanities and the social and natural sciences.
