The 24th Annual Workshop will take place in Groningen,
(in the North of The Netherlands)
The aim of the annual workshops is the exchange of knowledge,
information, and opinions on all aspects of cognition and related
topics, with emphasis on exchanges between different disciplines
involved. Papers may be either of a general kind, or specific, but
with sufficient attention for the general aspects, and understandable
for the audience from a wide variety of disciplines. The following
disciplines belong explicitly to the scope of the workshop:
- psychology (cognitive, developmental), perception,
- artificial intelligence (general aspects),
- associative memory and neural networks, neuroscience,
- language (also origin of language, computational, and disorders),
- education and instruction,
- philosophy, history of concepts.
Experimental papers should be placed within a theoretical framework.
Papers accepted for the workshop may be published in the journal of
the ESSCS, 'Cognitive Systems'.
