Second call for papers, October 2001


 Special Workshop on Multidisciplinary Aspects of Learning

 Clichy (Paris, France), 17-19 January 2002


The ESSCS attempts to promote the multidisciplinary study of all aspects
of cognition. Learning is one of the nodal points of cognition and
raises many integrative issues with regard to the study of cognitive
systems. This is the first special workshop on this topic organised by
the ESSCS. The spirit of the workshop is deliberately chosen to
encourage researchers from various fields to discuss with each other
about the challenges and opportunities offered by a cross disciplinary
approach to learning.


Contributions are invited on all aspects of learning, in human, animal,
and artificial systems. More specifically the following subdisciplines
of cognitive sciences are involved:
- Psychology (cognitive, clinical, developmental, ergonomics)
- Artificial intelligence (general aspects)
- Neurosciences (associative memory, neural networks, etc.)
- Linguistics (also computational), language disorders
- Educational and Instructional sciences
- Philosophy, History of concepts.


G.J. Dalenoort (University of Groningen):
Theoretical considerations on learning

G. Vergnaud (CNRS, Universite Paris 8):
Learning and conceptual development

J. Rogalski (CNRS, Universite Paris 8):
Epistemology and cognitive analysis of the task: towards a common frame
for analysing competence acquisition from students to professionals


The scientific program includes both oral communications and poster
presentations. Each oral communication will be allotted 20 minutes for
presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion. The workshop schedule will
include a poster session; presenters will stand by their posters for
informal discussion with workshop participants.

of 20 oral presentations. The total number of presentations will be
