Construction grammars

NEW DATE: 18-20 AUGUST 2021

After weighing the different options, we are excited to announce the new date for ICCG11, which is exactly one year later than originally planned and got the majority vote in our poll: 18-20 August 2021.

We’ll do our best to stick to the original program as much as possible. 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. We will also launch a new call on 15 September, giving anyone the opportunity to submit a new abstract, which will be subjected to a new reviewing round.

IMPORTANT! Conference postponed due to corona crisis

Given the current Corona crisis, and the uncertainties about the extent of the measures in Belgium in August, we are forced to postpone ICCG11. We very much regret this course of events and apologize for any inconveniences caused. We are aware that many of you have been looking forward to ICCG11 as much as we have. We are somewhat fortunate in that the conference is a biennial event that is not (as far as we know) alternating with another big international conference. As this means we are not competing with ourselves, we believe the best solution is to postpone the conference to next summer.
We can already assure you that accepted abstracts remain accepted. Those of you who want to update their abstracts integrating new research will also have the possibility to do so. There will also be a new call, giving anyone the opportunity to submit a new abstract, which will be subjected to a new reviewing round.
We are currently working out the details with regard to the timing, in consultation with our keynote speakers. As soon as we know more, we plan on conducting a small survey on your preferences among a limited range of possible dates.

11th International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG11)

Construction grammars in and between minds, communities, computers

  • Location: University of Antwerp (UAntwerpen), Belgium
  • Date: from Thursday 20 till Saturday 22 August 2020 (new date to be communicated)

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.
