CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: ASAB Interdisciplinary Workshop on Physical Cognition & Problem Solving, June 27th 28th 2012, Birmingham, UK

http://jackiechappell.com/pcps-workshop-2012

We would like to invite you to the ASAB Interdisciplinary Workshop on Physical Cognition & Problem 
Solving to be held at the University of Birmingham on June 27th  28th 2012. This event is FREE to 
attend and travel bursaries are available.  We hope proceedings from this workshop to form a 
special issue in Animal Behaviour, subject to peer review.

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:
* Joanna Bryson (Bath)
* Ludwig Huber (Vienna)
* Nicola McGuigan (Heriot-Watt)
* Murray Shanahan (Imperial)
* Elva Robinson (York)

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:
