The conference "Gesture: Evolution, brain and linguistic structures" is the fourth biannual meeting of the International Society for Gesture Studies (ISGS). The conference takes place at the European University Frankfurt Oder and is hosted by the VW-Project "Towards a grammar of gesture – evolution, brain, and linguistic structures". The conference has the following thematic foci: linguistic, semiotic and pragmatic approaches to human gestural communication with a special focus on cognitive linguistic perspectives, possible evolutionary precursors, and neural correlates of gestures. A major goal is to provide a platform to discuss both specific research questions within these areas and interdisciplinary approaches connecting these distinct areas of gesture research.
