5th International Conference on Interactivity, Language & Cognition, September 2021
Integrating Quantitative and Qualitative Methods in the Cognitive and Language Sciences
With this conference we aim to strengthen the ongoing conversations and strike new encounters among researchers working within ecological, enactive, cognitive ethnographic and dynamical systems frameworks and others approaches, to unite them in a common concern for the complexity, richness and fragility of individual and collective cognition as it arises from language-infused interactions. We will try to give due weight to the qualitative methods, under the assumption that the best “measuring device” for human purposes is another human being: we have evolved not only to read each other but to feel with each other and act together. In seeking “tender” quantitative methods we will turn to those approaches which:
do not take operationalization to be a straightforward process,
can respect complexity, reciprocal causality and emergence,
refrain from hasty reifications of theoretical constructs, and
promote process-oriented analyses.

Quantitative Preserving the Qualitative: a Teaser for Integrating Methodologies
We are happy to announce that a teaser event for the upcoming CILC5 2021 conference was held virtually with 270 registered participants from all over the world. Our aim was to bring together researchers working within several approaches, who are aligned by their focus on preserving the value-realizing and qualitative aspects of human behavior and experience, and who seek quantitative methods that enable this. Researchers from both “quali” and “quanti” sides has presented their views on the problem of integration of these complementary approaches to science. The most important issues and common language to talk about them before the stationary conference in 2021 have started to emerge.
Peripatetic Conference 2019 (WWW)
Since 2010 we organize Peripatetic Conferences on Cognitive Systems Modeling. Conferences take place in the mountains and consist of talks and long hikes which provide opportunities for extended discussions. We believe that the rarefied mountain air and the physical exertion bring our brains to another level of functioning.
