Call for Papers:
"Concepts in Action: Representation, Learning, and Application" (CARLA) is an international workshop aimed at fostering interdisciplinary exchange about research on concepts. It invites contributions from all fields related to cognitive science, including (but not limited to) linguistics, artificial intelligence, psychology, philosophy, logic, and computer science. Although the workshop is open for research on any aspect of concepts, there exists a set of core topics that are of special interest:

- Representation: How can we formally describe and model concepts?
- Learning: Where do concepts come from and how are they acquired?
- Application: How are concepts used in cognitive tasks?

We invite the submission of extended abstracts (up to 500 words excluding references) to until May 20, 2018. We will send out acceptance notifications by May 31, 2018.

We plan to invite a selection of presentations for publication after the workshop.

A detailed schedule of the workshop will be provided on our website in July 2018.
