A two-day conference exploring the relationship between enactive, ecological, and computational approaches to cognitive science will be held at the University of Sussex on 10th-11th July 2017. A particular focus of the conference is the shared ancestry of some of these approaches in classical cybernetics, and the potential for future reconciliation between the approaches. 

Talks will be given by the following speakers (titles and abstracts will be made available closer to the conference date):

  • Anthony Chemero (University of Cincinnati)
  • Ron Christly (University of Sussex)
  • Sabrina Golonka (Leeds Beckett University)
  • Alistair Isaac (University of Edinburgh)
  • Marcin Miłkowski (Polish Academy of Sciences)
  • Nico Orlandi (UC Santa Cruz)
  • Adam Linson (University of Dundee)
  • Mario Villalobos (Universidad de Tarapaca)
