CALL FOR PAPERS: Enaction: Challenges and Successes symposium, April 2-5th, 2013, Exeter, UK

http://emps.exeter.ac.uk/computer-science/research/aisb/

Part of AISB Annual Convention 2013

Enaction represents one alternative to "good old-fashion cognitive science", in the form of a 
change of focus for models of cognition: from computation to interaction, from the brain-in-a-vat 
to the embodied brain in the world. This extension, dubbed enactive cognitive science, arises from 
both the inability of current theoretical frameworks to account for recent data in the social 
and life sciences, and from growing debates on the defining features of a cognizant organism in 
its environment.

The symposium will foster discussions around 1) the challenges that any alternative to current 
frameworks will have to overcome, and 2) the successes from enactive cognitive science that 
respond to shortcomings in the orthodox frameworks. The outcome of this symposium will be a 
critical perspective of the state of the field today, as well as a tentative roadmap for the 
future.


It will be organised around talks and panel discussions. Papers should be no more than 7000 words, 
including refs and figures. All accepted papers will be provided to the AISB'13 delegates on 
memory sticks at the beginning of the Convention and, subject to a sufficient number of 
high-quality submissions, proceedings of the symposium will be published in a more formal outreach,
like the Springers series Studies in Applied  Philosophy, Epistemology and Rational Ethics (SAPERE).


Submissions should be made using the EasyChair portal for the symposium:

Timeline:
 Submission of full papers: 14th January 2013
 Notification of acceptance: 11th February 2013
 Camera-ready for inclusion in proceedings: 4th March 2013

The symposium is a sequel to the workshop "Foundations of Enactive Cognitive Sciences", which 
took place in Windsor, on February 27-28th, 2013, sponsored by the Centre for Integrative 
Neuroscience and Neurodynamics, at the University of Reading.
