6-8 July 2010. London, United Kingdom

The aim of the annual workshops is the exchange of knowledge, information, and opinions on all aspects of cognition and related topics. Papers to be presented may either address a general problem, relevant in more than one discipline, or a specific problem, but with sufficient attention for its relevance outside the specific discipline. All presentations should be understandable for the audience coming from a wide variety of disciplines. The following disciplines belong explicitly to the scope of the workshop:

  • psychology (cognitive, developmental, clinical), perception,
  • biology, with emphasis on evolution and cognition,
  • artificial intelligence,
  • neuroscience and neural networks,
  • language (also origin of language, computational, and disorders),
  • education and instruction,
  • philosophy, history of concepts, general systems theory, as far as relevant for the topics above.
