Second call for papers, October 2001
EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY
Special Workshop on Multidisciplinary Aspects of Learning
The ESSCS attempts to promote the multidisciplinary study of all aspects of cognition. Learning is one of the nodal points of cognition and raises many integrative issues with regard to the study of cognitive systems. This is the first special workshop on this topic organised by the ESSCS. The spirit of the workshop is deliberately chosen to encourage researchers from various fields to discuss with each other about the challenges and opportunities offered by a cross disciplinary approach to learning.
Contributions are invited on all aspects of learning, in human, animal, and artificial systems. More specifically the following subdisciplines of cognitive sciences are involved:
G.J. Dalenoort (University of Groningen):
G. Vergnaud (CNRS, Universite Paris 8):
J. Rogalski (CNRS, Universite Paris 8):
The scientific program includes both oral communications and poster presentations. Each oral communication will be allotted 20 minutes for presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion. The workshop schedule will include a poster session; presenters will stand by their posters for informal discussion with workshop participants.
The working language of the workshop is English. There will be a maximum of 20 oral presentations. The total number of presentations will be restricted to about 40. Participation is also possible without a communication.
The workshop will take place at the "Lycee Rene Auffray", 23 rue Fernand Pelloutier, 92110 Clichy, Tel: 01-49-68-90-00 (from abroad: +33-1-49-68-90-00), Web site: www.lycee-rene-auffray.com, Metro (underground): line 13 (direction: "Gabriel Peri - Asnieres - Gennevilliers"; Stop: "Mairie de Clichy").

Submission of contributions
Contributions will be peer-reviewed and considered on the basis of their relevance over a variety of subdisciplines of cognitive sciences. This will imply that papers that exclusively report on experimental results, without a theoretical basis or interpretation, will not be accepted. In case of doubt, please take up contact with the organisers. Papers that have been accepted can also be submitted to a special issue of 'Cognitive Systems', the international peer-reviewed journal of the ESSCS.
Submissions (in English) should be sent in the form a 300 words abstract. Desired presentation form is to be indicated (oral, poster, oral or poster).
