The 5th International Conference of the Cognitive Science
July 26, 2006 at Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre,
Vancouver, BC, Canada
We are pleased to invite submissions to 5th ICCS2006, the Fifth International Conference of the Cognitive Science Society (in the Asian-Pacific region), to be held at Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre in Vancouver, Canada, July 26, 2006. This is the Asian-Pacific version of the international series of the conferences in cognitive science. Cognitive science pursues a scientific understanding of the mind through all available methodologies, notably those of anthropology, artificial intelligence, computer science, education, linguistics, learning sciences, logic, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology, or other, newly developing methodologies that are most appropriate to promote the science.
This is the fifth conference of such an endeavor, following the ones held in Korea (1997), Japan (1999), China (2001), and Australia (2003). This conference is structured to hold ten workshops/symposia to represent current interests and cutting edge thoughts from Asia-Pacific regions, followed by the poster session open to members of
cognitive science societies worldwide. It will be held in conjunction with The 28th Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society, July 26-29 (tutorials and workshops on July 26) at the same venue.
Registration for ICCS2006 will let you attend this conference, and vice versa.
Individual poster submissions due: February 27, 2006
Acceptance notifications: April 30, 2006
Final camera-ready copies due: May 20, 2006
