Welcome to the official website of the 8th International Conference of the Scandinavian Association for Language and Cognition (SALC8). The theme of the conferene is “Language, Cognition, and Society”. 

The conference will be held as a hybrid event, both  at the Faculty of Arts, Psychology and Theology at Åbo Akademi University, Finland, and online, on 17-19 August 2022. Information about the conference can be found on this site.

The main goal of SALC is to promote the study of the relationship between language and cognition both in the Nordic countries and more generally. This involves any type of research in which language is not treated in isolation, but as based on structures and processes of general cognition and social cognition, and as affecting such structures and processes. The conference is intended to be a forum for cooperation and exchange of ideas between disciplines, fields of study and theoretical frameworks for the study of language and cognition.

The local organizers of the conference are the Finnish Department at Åbo Akademi University and the Finnish Cognitive Linguistics Association (FiCLA).
