About the workshop series

ESLP 2011 is the fourth event in a workshop series founded in 2007. A first goal of the conference is to bring together researchers working on the interaction of language and visual/motor processing in embodied, situated, and language-for-action research traditions. A further focus is on uniting converging and complementary evidence from three different methods (behavioral, neuropsychological, and computational). The first meeting led to the publication of a special issue on embodied language processing in Brain and Language (March 2010). ESLP took place again in June, 2009 in Rotterdam, in association with the Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society in Amsterdam, and in September 2010 at UCSD San Diego together with the Cognitive Linguistics Conference (see

ESLP 2011 Focus

ESLP 2011 brings together research on embodied and situated language processing with trends in the cognitive sciences (emotion, synaesthesia, social cognition and language, and robotics / computational modeling). In doing so, ESLP 2011 hopes to improve our insights into research questions such as “How deeply is language processing embodied?”; “What can synaesthesia reveal about embodied language processing?”; “How do affective and social factors connect with language processing?”; “Which testable predictions for embodied language processing can we generate based on recent robotics and computational modeling approaches?”
An overarching methodological focus is on bringing together findings from different methods that can contribute complementary insights, with the goal of refining existing accounts of embodiment and situatedness in language processing.
