INCD FACULTY & STUDENTS FEATURED, ASSOCIATION FOR COGNITIVE SEMIOTICS CONFERENCE

 

Thursday, November 1, 2018

The IACS conference series gathers together scholars and scientists in semiotics, cognitive science, linguistics, anthropology, philosophy, psychology and related fields, who wish to share their research on meaning and contribute to the interdisciplinary dialogue.

From July 13th to 15th, 2018 OCAD University and Ryerson University (in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ontario) co-hosted the Third Conference of the International Association for Cognitive Semiotics, co-organized by Dr. Peter Coppin (Graduate Program Director, Inclusive Design). 

Presentations by Inclusive Design students and faculty were featured in the conference including:

Veronica Geraldo (with Jordan Zlatev)
Referential iconicity in music and speech within and across sensory modalities

Brandon Biggs, Lena Yusim, and Peter Coppin
The Audio Game Laboratory

Peter Coppin (with Richard C. Windeyer) 
Sonifying Napoleon's March: A cognitive semiotics approach to translating infographic maps into cross-modal information displays

Annie Levy and Peter Coppin

The conference also included a tour of an exhibition titled "Multi-Sensory Expo" that featured projects by INCD students at OCAD U's Ada Slaight Student Gallery, as well as a poster presentation by INCD student Felipe Sarmiento (with Peter Coppin) investigating an evolving multimodal sign system for the non-visual and non-aural soccer spectator.

The International Association for Cognitive Semiotics (IACS, founded 2013) aims at establishing cognitive semiotics as a trans-disciplinary study of meaning. More information on the International Association for Cognitive Semiotics can be found at http://iacs.dk

The full program from the conference can be found here

Cognitive Semiotics investigates the nature of meaning, the role of consciousness, the unique cognitive features of human beings, the interaction of nature and nurture in development, and the interplay of biological and cultural evolution in phylogeny. To better answer such questions, cognitive semiotics integrates methods and theories developed in the human, social, and cognitive sciences.
