Dear international semiotics colleagues,
The spirit of the 11th World Congress of Semiotics will be exhibited along two directions: the retrospective to the scholarly achievements attained over the past 40 years and the prospect for the desirable global-semiotic developments in future. On the whole, the coming-up congress will present a topography of current theoretical problematics facing global human sciences today.


In this second announcement of the Preparatory Committee of “The 11th World Congress of Semiotics” we present three lists of program sessions:
1. The list of the plenary speeches and speakers in the Congress;
2. The list of the round tables and sessions and the related organizers in the Congress;
3. The list of the round tables and organizers in the 1st Chinese Symposium on Semiotics (to be held in Chinese, given here just for information for international colleagues).

In List No. 2 we present all items in terms of temporarily made thematic categories which intend to be used only by interested participants as the reference for registrations. The final list of items (round tables and sessions) and schedules can only be given after the registration process is finished till June 2012. There could be two kinds of participants: those who intend to present a paper in the Congress (so an abstract of 200 words or so is requested to be sent to the congress contact in advance); and those who only wish to join the activities during the Congress period. But both kinds of participants are requested to pay the same registration fee according to the rules.
With respect to the subjects of papers, all topics related to the basic fields mentioned in the first Call for Papers are acceptable; meanwhile, we especially encourage participants to join the sessions and round tables listed in the following table. Despite the rule that each paper reading is limited within 30 minutes, all papers presented will be included afterwards into the online Proceedings in a systematic format. In addition, some of the papers will be separately selected into the printed Proceedings for publication too.
Regarding the procedure of registration and other practical matters with respect to the participation please refer to the separate notices announced at the Congress Website. The related schedules and practical matters could be probably readjusted later according to the changing situations; please pay attention to the updating of news at the website.
