We invite scholars from different fields to submit papers that discuss the creation of meanings through a range of semiotic resources. The focus of presentations may include theoretical developments in the description and annotation of multimodal artifacts; the use and applicability of multimodal artifacts in the professions, such as education, architecture, design, and others, case studies of particular multimodal documents, and critical analysis of multimodal documents in social contexts, and other aspects and areas that might be of relevance to a better understanding of the uses of semiotic resources in the creation of meanings in contemporary society.
You are welcome to propose:
Symposia - presentation time: 60 minutes (plus Q&A)
Purpose: Full papers are for mature work, requiring lengthy explanations of the conceptual background, as well as methodology, data, analysis and implications. We also encourage papers that address conceptual and future issues.
Focus papers - presentation time: 30 minutes (plus Q&A)
Purpose: Reports focus on innovative results and work in progress that have the potential for significant contributions. Reflections are brief theoretical notes and commentaries.

Each paper will be 25 minutes long plus Q&A, opening and closing sessions. The total estimated time should be noted in the Colloquia abstract.
