The aim of the annual workshops is the exchange of knowledge,

for the audience from a wide variety of disciplines. The following
disciplines belong explicitly to the scope of the workshop:

- biology, with emphasis on evolution and cognition,
- artificial intelligence (general aspects),
- associative memory and neural networks, neuroscience,
- language (also origin of language, computational, and disorders),
- education and instruction,
- philosophy, history of concepts.

framework. Papers accepted for the workshop may be published
