Following the success of the first three editions, we are pleased to announce the launch of the junior workshop CLI 2017, organized by the PhD students of the "Cognition, Language, Interaction" (CLI) graduate school at University Paris 8 - Vincennes-Saint-Denis. "Reconsidering errors" is the theme chosen for the two day international workshop which will take place on the 19th and 20th of October 2017 at the University Paris 8.


Although an error is conceptually difficult to define, researchers do not fail to encounter it. It is following its emergence, induction, or discovery, that the scientist can try to understand, manage, prevent and draw new knowledge from the error. The aim of our workshop is to consider errors from a new standpoint, which can be borne by the temporal dimension at which an error can occur. This entails that the concept can be approached from its onset to its mastery, from introducing it to understanding it, from defining it to preventing it.


The CLI 2017 workshop, marked by its multidisciplinary approach, welcomes communications from the following fields: psychology, ergonomics, neuroscience, information and communication science, computer science, linguistics, production and industrial engineering, and cryptography. Each of these disciplines addresses the question of an error using its own analytical, theoretical and methodological frameworks. In each discipline, errors open different pathways for understanding human nature.


The main axes of reflection developed during the workshop will be:



1. Discovering and understanding: What is qualified as an error? What is at its source? What does its emergence teach us? How can we bound it, grasp it? Does the error reveal a failure, of success? What are the consequences of its onset, induction or detection?


2. Reacting and preventing: How can we use errors? How can we take advantage of them? Can an error be deliberately induced or reproduced? Should it be repeated or, on the contrary, limited? How can an error be contained, manipulated, controlled? How can we remedy to it? Under which circumstances? How can an error advance research or knowledge in general?


The aim of this workshop is to allow and encourage young researchers from different backgrounds to engage in transdisciplinarys reflections, and to build bridges between, across and beyond their disciplinary fields. The scientific purpose of this workshop is to update and further develop the current state of knowledge on the main topic, by providing an overview of the issues that surround it.


This call for papers is addressed to all PhD students and young researchers, both France or of foreign nationalities, affiliated to a research laboratory.
