Call for Abstracts:
"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?

This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to present and discuss ongoing research on concepts. We invite concept researchers from all fields related to cognitive science to submit abstracts to the workshop for oral or poster presentations.

Submission and Publication:
We invite the submission of extended abstracts via until April 30, 2020. We will send out acceptance notifications by May 31, 2020.
The extended abstracts can use up to three pages (including references) and should be uploaded as pdf based on the following template (LaTeX or Word) which is based on Springer’s LNCS style:
