CALL FOR PAPERS: Enaction: Challenges and Successes Symposium , AISB'13, April 2-5 2013, Exeter UK - EXTENDED DEADLINE

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

We are pleased to announce the AISB symposium "Enaction: Challenges and 
Successes" to take place during the AISB Annual Convention 2013, Univ. 
Exeter, UK, April 2-5th, 2013.

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

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:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aisb13enaction

(New) Timeline:
Submission of full papers: 28th January 2013
Notification of acceptance: 18th 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.
