Seeing and thinking are information-processing activities. What are the forms in which visual and cognitive information are coded? This question is of immense interest for both psychological research into the processes underlying vision and thinking and for philosophical investigation into the nature of mind and knowledge. This Workshop brings together the foremost theorists on this issue.

This workshop will be held in-person. It will also be streamed via Zoom (link after registration).
