Call for Papers
This conference is intended as a forum to exchange ideas and discuss issues related to the mechanisms underlying human communication in general, and in particular the interfaces between linguistic semantics, pragmatics and philosophy of language. The major topics to be explored include:
-	language in the mind vs. language in use;
-	explicit and implicit meanings;
-	cognitive processing: utterance production and comprehension;
-	different construals of meaning;
-	figurative meanings;
-	rendering meanings in translation and interpreting.

We welcome submissions related to these broad topics in the form of papers (20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion) and posters. Abstracts of up to 400 words should be sent to Maria Jodlowiec: maria.jodlowiec at uj.edu.pl by 10 June 2016. Please, include the full name, affiliation and the email address of the author, explicitly indicating “Poster” for a poster presentation. Notification of acceptance decisions will be sent via email by 10 July 2016. 

Professor Robyn Carston (Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, University College London, UK) and Professor Herbert Colston (Centre for Comparative Psycholinguistics, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada) have accepted the invitation to be plenary speakers at the conference.

There is no conference fee.  
Participants will be asked to arrange accommodation on their own. The conference will take place in Krupnicza Street (Auditorium Maximum), Al. Mickiewicza (Collegium Paderevianum II) and Reymonta Street: the details will be provided when the conference programme is finalised.
All queries about the event should be emailed to: maria.jodlowiec at uj.edu.pl.
