Model Comparison Challenge
  http://www.hss.cmu.edu/departments/sds/ddmlab/modeldsf/letter.html

We write to invite you to participate in a Modeling Comparison Challenge:
"Predicting Cognitive Performance in Open-ended Dynamic tasks".  The goal of
the challenge is to advance the state of the art in cognitive modeling by
evaluating alternative cognitive models against human performance in a
common dynamic task. The task captures in an integrated manner some of the
key aspects of human cognition including the detection of temporal
regularities and the ability to control dynamic systems.

The description of the challenge and the information for participation
(including data, task environment, references and documentation) can be
found on the challenge web site:

http://www.cmu.edu/ddmlab/modeldsf

Please send an E-mail to: DSFChallenge@gmail.com to register as soon as
possible.  You must be registered before submitting your model. The most
important dates are:

The Modeling Comparison Challenge will be the focus of a symposium at the
Behavior Representation In Modeling and Simulation (BRIMS-2009) on April 1,
2009 in Sundance, Utah.

Deadline for model submissions is May 15, 2009.

Announcement of the challenge results is June 1, 2009.

The results and winner(s) will be presented at a symposium at the
International Conference on Cognitive Modeling (ICCM 2009) in Manchester, UK
on July 24th-26th, 2009.  One representative for each of the 3 best models
will be invited to present at the ICCM symposium.  Their expenses will be
covered for up to US00.

Thank you for your attention and we look forward to receiving your models!
Christian Lebiere, Coty Gonzalez, Walter Warwick.
