Young researchers conference in cognitive science
Montreal, June 15th-17th, 2007

Graduate students are invited to present their research at an interdisciplinary conference on cognitive science that will be held at the University of Quebec in Montreal, on June 15th-17th, 2007.

This years' theme is social cognition. Abstracts (600 words) should be submitted online before March 15th. A more complete description and an abstract submission form are available online at http://cognitio.uqam.ca. First authors should be graduate students or postdoc researchers affiliated with a university or research centre. Disciplinary affiliation of the authors is not relevant, but the theme should be addressed through a cognitive science point of view. Presentations should be in English. All talks will be 30 minutes long (including discussion) and should be intended for an interdisciplinary audience. This conference is the first in a series of important events on social cognition at UQAM in 2007-2008, culminating with the 2008 summer school Minds and Societies. The author(s) of the best Cognitio talk, as determined by Cognitio's scientific committee, will be invited to present his or her work at the 2008 Summer School.
