The Linguistic Society of Korea (LSK) is pleased to announce the 2022 Seoul International Conference on Linguistics (SICOL-2022) to be held online from August 11-12, 2022.
The theme for SICOL-2022 is ‘Language in interaction: New perspectives and approaches.’ In the age of information and communications technology we live in today, knowledge and data processed as information are making critical impact on human behavior, ways of thinking, values and operation of social structure. Information circulated in this age is presented, stored and exchanged in the form of language. As such, the study of language and language use is more important than ever to deepen our understanding of human behavior, ways of thinking and interconnections in a hyper-connected society.
SICOL-2022 provides a forum for the presentation of cutting-edge research focused on the theoretical and empirical study of ‘language in multidimensional interaction’.
It will feature three invited presentations by the following distinguished scholars:
- Taehong Cho (Hanyang University, Korea)
- Klaus von Heusinger (Universität zu Köln, Germany)
- Helen de Hoop (Radboud University, The Netherlands)
It will also feature a diverse array of sessions:
- General sessions: papers from all areas of linguistics
- Special sessions: papers addressing topics related to the conference theme
- Tutorial organized by Nayoun Kim (Sungkyunkwan University, Korea) and June Choe (University of Pennsylvania, USA): Experimental syntax using IBEX/PCIBEX
The SICOL-2022 organizing committee welcomes abstract submissions for 20-minute oral presentations, followed by 10 minutes for discussion and questions. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following subjects:
- Interactions among language modules: New perspectives on or approaches to interactions or interfaces between language system’s internal modules such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics and discourse
- Language experience and language cognition: New perspectives on or approaches to language contact and the acquisition of a second or third language; and their impact on language change or language cognition
- Language, media and communication: Data-oriented approaches to characteristics of language used by internet-based digital communication media or the use of language and communication in the hyper-connected society
