CALL FOR PAPERS and Conference Announcement

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE -- Levels of Processing: Foundations of Social Cognition

University Club Bonn, September 16--18, 2010     (realized in cooperation with research groups in Bochum and Kln)

As part of the interdisciplinary research project on "Knowing how and knowing that" sponsored by the Volkswagen Foundation we organize a three-day international workshop on the Foundations of Social Cognition.

This interdisciplinary meeting starts with philosophical investigations of different levels of processing realized in cognitive and social abilities. These methodological considerations will then be used to develop and discuss a new research framework of investigating social cognition. The relevant dimensions that we want to combine are: 1. the dispute in philosophy and psychology about different theories of understanding other minds (Theory-Theory, Simulation Theory, Interaction Theory, Person Model Theory), 2. the recent discoveries about the neuropsychological foundations of social cognition (neural correlates and their relevance) and 3. the role of culture for social abilities.

Confirmed Speakers are:

Jon Opie - Philosophy and Cognitive Science, University of Adelaide

Colin Allen - Philosophy and Cognitive Science, Indiana University

Carl Craver - Philosophy, Washington University in St Louis

Shaun Gallagher - Philosophy and Cognitive Sciences, University of Central Florida

Shihui Han Peking - Psychology, Peking University

Nalini Ambady - Psychology, Tufts University

The workshop will be organized in four Symposia on (1) Levels of Processing, (2) Understanding Other Minds, (3) Social Cognition, and (4) Cultural Cognition/Neuroscience. In addition there will be a Session with Graduate Student presentations and a Poster Session. The conference language will be English.

Call for Papers:

PhD students and Postdocs are invited to submit papers or posters on topics related to the main topic of the conference. Paper submissions must be appropriate for short talks of 20 min for a total 30 min session. Papers may not exceed 2500 words including an abstract of 150 words. Submissions are to be sent in electronical form (.pdf, .doc, .docx) to ramiro.glauer@uni-bonn.de
