SweCog 2014 Conference
Warmly welcome to the first SweCog national conference.
The aim of SweCog is to support networking among researchers in Sweden, with the goal of creating a strong interdisciplinary cluster of cognitive science oriented research within Sweden.
SweCog is building on the network developed within the Swedish National Graduate School of Cognitive Science, but the new organisation welcomes all researchers with an interest in cognitive science, broadly conceived.
The conference takes place in central Lund September 11 and 12, 2014. Invited speakers are Peter Gärdenfors (Lund University), Anders Lansner (KTH) and Timo Mäntylä (Stockholm University).
We welcome both poster and oral presentations. Please register and submit a one-page abstract no later than August 20. You will receive notification of acceptance no later than August 22.
Registration for the SweCog 2014 conference in Lund has been closed.
