CFP. (In)coherence of Discourse 4

The fourth (In)Coherence of discourse workshop will be held in the University of Lorraine on March 30th and 31th, 2017. The objective of the workshop is to discuss the latest advances in the modelling of discourses, in particular the kind held with pathological patients (e.g. schizophrenics). The adopted modelling paradigm is that of formal semantics, which falls within the scope of both linguistics and logic while also making ties to the philosophy of language.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

   discourse comprehension and representation
   experimental studies of non standard dialogues
   formal accounts of dialogues
   logic and reasoning
   semantics / pragmatics interfaces
   goals, intentions and commitments in dialogues
   Cognitive Psychology
   Psycholinguistics     
   mental illness and cognitive (in)coherence
   radical interpretation
   logicality and cognitive (in)coherence

Like the previous (In)Coherence of discourse workshops, the fourth edition is organised by the SLAM (Schizophrenia and Language: Analysis and Modelling) project. The SLAM project aims to systematize the study of pathological conversations as part of an interdisciplinary approach combining Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science and Philosophy. It focuses particularly on conversations involving people with psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder).
