CALL FOR PAPERS: Spatial Cognition 2014, 15-19 Sep 2014, Bremen, GERMANY

Program Chairs: 
Christian Freksa, Bernhard Nebel, Mary Hegarty, Thomas Barkowsky

Spatial Cognition is concerned with the acquisition, organization, and utilization of knowledge 
about spatial objects and environments, be it real or abstract, human or machine. Spatial Cognition
comprises research in different scientific fields insofar as they are concerned with cognitive 
agents and space, such as cognitive psychology, linguistics, computer science, philosophy, and 
education. Research issues in the field range from the investigation of human spatial cognition 
to mobile robot navigation, including aspects such as wayfinding, spatial planning, spatial 
learning, internal and external representations of space, and communication of spatial information.
SC 2014 will bring together researchers working on spatial cognition from all of these perspectives.
The conference is single-track, and the final program will be the result of a selective review 
process. The program will include invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of 
refereed papers.

The main conference will be preceded by two days of workshops and tutorials.

Every effort is being made to keep conference expenses affordable, particularly for student 

All full papers presented at the conference will be published by Springer.

Papers containing original and unpublished work are solicited in all areas of spatial cognition, 
including, but not limited to:

       Human and animal navigation
       Development of spatial cognition
       Space perception
       Diagrammatic reasoning and maps
       Human-machine interactions in spatial environments
       Neural basis of spatial cognition
       Education of spatial cognition
       Spatial learning and skills development
       Spatial language and communication
