Jury Lotman 100
2022 is the centenary of the birth of Jury Lotman (1922-2022), the renowned Russian-Estonian semiotician (http://jurilotman.ee ). In collaboration with the University of Tartu, the Estonian Semiotics Association and the Juri Lotman Repository, the 15th World Congress of Semiotics will devote a special section of its scientific program (specially themed panels, roundtables and keynotes) on Lotman’s work, as well as host a series of special events (masterclasses, a virtual book exhibition of translations of Lotman’s works, screening of Lotman’s video-lectures). Details about the Lotman 100 related activities will be announced presently.
3rd Semiotics Journals Fair
The Third Journals Fair of the IASS will consist of an initial gathering in Thessaloniki featuring an explanation, by each editor of a semiotics journal present, in NO MORE THAN TWO English sentences, of each journal’s specific mission. Then editors will disperse to tables allotted to their journals where they can meet potential contributors from the audience and distribute relevant information, publicity etc. associated with their journals. Early career researchers, especially, are invited to seize this opportunity to speak with semiotics journals editors about their projects and potential publications. Among the editors present will be those for Semiotica, Social Semiotics, Punctum, Digital Age in Semiotics and Communication, and others.
Early Career Researchers Meeting
Further to the IASS-sponsored First World Meeting of Early Career Researchers in Semiotic Studies, held in Medellin, Columbia https://iass-ais.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Medellin-ECR-meeting-programme-2020.pdf, the IASS will now launch an Early Career Researcher Network. Led by Jorge Eduardo Urueña López (Latin America), Pengjia (Asia), Alin Olteanu (Europe) and Damien Tambini (Africa), the launch event in Thessaloniki will seek to bring together ECRs in semiotics across the globe in order to find ways to collaborate, to promote semiotics and to thrive. All IASS members are welcome, but the Network will look to attract the participation of members who have gained a PhD within the last 8, as well as PhD, Masters and undergraduate students”.
Semiotics Journals Exhibition

Starting with Kaunas (2016), the semiotics journals exhibition forms a standard feature of the World Congresses of Semiotics, aiming to showcase their wide variety and geographical distribution.
Publishers of semiotic journals, interested to be included in the exhibition, are welcome to send sample copies of their publication to the following address:
