Construction grammars

About the 2021 edition

After cancellation in 2020 due to the COVID19 situation, it was decided by majority vote that ICCG11 will take place on 18-20 August 2021.

The original program will be preserved as much as possible, but we are also welcoming new submissions. All keynote speakers have agreed to give a plenary talk next summer and we also intend to offer the same pre-conference tutorials and social programme. All accepted abstracts and workshops remain accepted. For more details see the new Calls and Circulars.

We are aiming for ICCG11 to be a live conference. The final decision however will be taken mid April 2021. Online participation will also be organized (to a greater or lesser extent, depending on demands) regardless, with streaming and remote participation options for those who cannot yet travel freely by that time. 

11th International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG11)

Construction grammars in and between minds, communities, computers

  • Location: University of Antwerp (UAntwerpen), Belgium
  • Date: from Wednesday 18 till Friday 20 August 2021

ICCG11 will cover a broad range of topics related to constructionist approaches to language. The conference also acts as a forum of discussion between approaches, including cognitive construction grammar, embodied construction grammar, fluid construction grammar, radical construction grammar, sign based construction grammar, frame semantics, or other approaches. The conference theme is: how do constructions model language in minds, communities, or computers? Submissions for presentations, posters, or workshops are particularly welcomed along the lines of this theme, but submissions may also be related to other aspects of constructionist linguistics. 



Information on how to submit an abstract is available under Calls and Circulars.
