"Concepts in Action: Representation, Learning, and Application" (CARLA) 
is an international workshop aimed at fostering interdisciplinary 
exchange about research on concepts. It invites contributions from all 
fields related to cognitive science, including (but not limited to) 
linguistics, artificial intelligence, psychology, philosophy, logic, and 
computer science. Although the workshop is open for research on any 
aspect of concepts, there exists a set of core topics that are of 
special interest:


    *Representation*: /How can we formally describe and model concepts?/


    *Learning*: /Where do concepts come from and how are they acquired?/


    *Application*: /How are concepts used in cognitive tasks?/

*This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to present and discuss 
ongoing research on concepts. We **therefore **invite concept 
researchers from all fields related to cognitive science to 
**participate in this workshop.*

      *Time and Venue: *
