Dear All,
due to a large number of requests, we are extending the submission

half of September); those who have submitted before August 25 will be 
notified in the beginning of September.

14th International Symposium of Cognition, Logic and Communication
"Linking Senses: Cross-Modality in Perceptual Domains across Cultures"
University of Latvia
December 7, 2019

Keynote speakers include
Prof. Asifa Majid (University of York, UK)
Prof. Baingio Pinna (Sassari University, Italy)
Prof. Charles Spence (Oxford University, UK)

Crossmodal mappings describe the systematic links between different 
stimulus features across perceptual modalities. Although crossmodal 
mappings are well-documented, several sensory domains (e.g., odor, 
taste, temperature) remain underexplored, and the relation of such 
mappings to emotion and action requires further elucidation. In 
addition, important questions still remain to be explored with regards 
to the culture-dependency and universality of crossmodal associations, 
and their development over the lifespan and across evolution.

The symposium invites submissions on the following topics, but is not 
limited to them:

Links between perceptual domains, especially the lesser-explored sensory 
Universality and culture dependency of perceptual modalities
The development of crossmodal associations
The cross-species consistency of crossmodal associations
