CFP: ICCM 2009 - conference, tutorials, doctoral consortium
ICCM 2009 Conference Announcement 24-26 July 2009, Mancester, UK, paper deadline early April 2009 http://web.mac.com/howesa/Site/ICCM_09.html ICCM is the premier international conference for research on computational models and computation-based theories of human behavior. ICCM is a forum for presenting, discussing, and evaluating the complete spectrum of cognitive models, including connectionism, symbolic modeling, dynamical systems, Bayesian modeling, and cognitive architectures. ICCM includes basic and applied research, across a wide variety of domains, ranging from low-level perception and attention to higher-level problem-solving and learning. The proceedings of the 2007 conference are available from http://sitemaker.umich.edu/iccm2007.org/iccm_2007_proceedings_and_papers See also: Tutorials program call, 2009 Int'l Conference on Cognitive Modeling 23 July 2009, Mancester, UK, proposal deadline is 5 March 2009 http://acs.ist.psu.edu/iccm2009/tutorials-call.html The Tutorials program at the International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM) 2009 will be held on 23 July 2009. It will provide conference participants with the opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills from a broad range of areas in the field of cognitive modeling. Tutorial topics will be presented in a taught format and are likely to range from practical guidelines to academic issues and theory. Tutorials at ICCM have been held before, and this year's program will be modelled after them and after the series held at the Cognitive Science Conference. If you are interested in providing such a tutorial, please reply to the tutorials call, and please keep in mind that this is typically developmental process, so please feel free to contact me or a committee member for suggestions, advice, and comments, including encouragement.

The Consortium has the following objectives: * Provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants' current research and guidance on future research directions. * Develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research. * Contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and conference events. Review Criteria The Doctoral Consortium review committee will select participants based on their anticipated contribution to the Consortium objectives. Participants typically have settled on thesis directions but have not necessarily had their research proposals accepted by their thesis committees. The Doctoral Consortium encourages participation of students from a wide variety of modeling approaches. Students from under-represented groups or institutions, including students from institutions where modeling is not a strength, are especially encouraged to apply.
