Topic areas


Five decades after the onset of the cognitive revolution, cognitive scientists are still struggling to define cognition. Successive paradigms in cognitive science have offered increasingly vague definitions to expand the scope of cognitive explanations. 

We invite contributions exploring any and all issues that can move us toward an answer to the question, “what is cognition?”   Contributions are welcome to address a particular view already championed in the literature or bring forward original suggestions on how we might produce an adequate notion of cognition in philosophy and the cognitive sciences.  

PhD-students and Post-Docs are invited to submit papers or posters.  Master students are also invited to submit posters. 

Paper submissions must be appropriate for short talks of 20 min. 

for a total 30 min session. Papers may not exceed 1500 words, including an abstract of 150 words.

Posters should be directly submitted or be described by an abstract of 500 words.

DEADLINE: May 1, 2013
