Call for submissions

Cognitive science pursues a scientific understanding of the mind through all available methodologies, notably those of anthropology, artificial intelligence, computer science, education, linguistics, logic, neuroscience, philosophy and psychology, in whatever combinations is most appropriate to the topic at hand. The aim of this year's conference will be to represent this full breadth of research in the cognitive sciences, in ways which will lead to useful mutual interactions. All contributions should be addressed to an interdisciplinary audience.

STANDARD SPOKEN PAPERS: 20-minute spoken presentations, which if accepted will be published as 6-page papers in the Proceedings;

STANDARD POSTERS: standard poster presentations, which if accepted will be published as 6-page papers in the Proceedings;

ABSTRACT POSTERS: poster presentations, which are guaranteed to be published in the Proceedings as one-page abstracts but can be submitted only by members of the Cognitive Science Society. Please see http://www.umich.edu/~cogsci for information about membership in the Cognitive Science Society, or contact the Executive Officer, Colleen Seifert, (Fax: (734) 429-9248; email: cogsci@umich.edu; mail: Cognitive Science Society, 5618 Ann Arbor-Saline Road, Saline, MI, 48176).
