Call for Workshop Proposals

The purpose of pre-conference workshops is to provide organizers and participants with an opportunity for an in-depth discussion on a specific topic important to cognitive science in general. Workshops can choose to concentrate on emerging research or cross-disciplinary topics, but can also discuss application issues.

Workshop notes should be assembled by the workshop organizers based on the input from workshop presenters. The workshop notes should be made available to workshop participants in printed form by the organizers themselves. They will use the same format as the proceedings of the main session of the Cognitive Science Conference, but will be distributed separately.


Each workshop is designed to be a half-day or full-day in duration. Half-day workshops are about 3 hours long (not including breaks). Full day workshops are about 6 hours long (not including breaks). Please indicate the duration of your proposed workshop in your application.

Review Process

Each workshop proposal should contain all the information that the workshop chairs and the program committee need to judge the importance and quality of the workshop and the interest in the proposed topic. Each workshop may have one or more designated organizers and, possibly, a workshop program committee. Workshop organizers need to set up their own web site with the workshop materials, to be linked to from the Cognitive Science Conference web site.


Prepare a proposal for review purposes composed of the following parts:

Please send your proposal directly to the workshop chairs, at the email address given here. Proposals should be in plain ASCII text (no Word, RTF, Latex, etc.).

Upon Acceptance
