CALL FOR PROPOSALS: "Physical Cognition & Problem Solving ", June 28th 29th 2011, Birmingham UK

University of Birmingham

Dear all,

We would like to invite you to a Physical Cognition & Problem-solving workshop to be held at the 
University of Birmingham on June 28th  29th 2011. This event is FREE to attend.

The aim of this workshop is to provide an excellent networking opportunity for both post-graduate
students and senior-level scientists working in the field of cognition. It will provide excellent 
potential for delegates to forge new links with researchers from other institutions and disciplines,
particularly for younger academics.

The topic of physical problem-solving is inherently interdisciplinary, bringing together researchers
from several fields. They share a common interest in the nature of cognitive architectures, how they
may have evolved phylogenetically and how they develop over an individual's lifetime. This may be 
investigated through controlled experiments with human children (psychology), field observations 
and captive studies of animals (zoology) and the design of behaviourally flexible, interactive 
robots, able to explore and learn about their environment (computer sciences).

Invited speakers include:
* Prof. Lars Chittka (Queen Mary)
* Prof. Peter Dayan (UCL)
* Dr. Emma Flynn (Durham)
* Prof. Tony Prescott (Sheffield)
* Dr. Amanda Seed (St. Andrews)
* Dr. Jo Wimpenny (Sheffield)

We would especially like to encourage postgraduate students to present a poster or an oral 
presentation, or to simply attend.

Interested participants should register for FREE here:
