From: Colleen Seifert <>
Subject: Cognitive Science Society

Twenty-third Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society
August 1 - 4, 2001 at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland

Cognitive Science pursues a scientific understanding of the mind
through all available methodologies, notably those of anthropology,
artificial intelligence, computer science, education, linguistics,
logic, neuroscience, philosophy and psychology, in whatever
combinations are most appropriate to the topic at hand. The focus of
this year's conference will be to represent the full breadth of
research in the cognitive sciences, in ways that will lead to useful
mutual interaction. All contributions should be addressed to an
interdisciplinary audience.

- STANDARD SPOKEN PAPERS: 20-minute spoken presentations, which (if
accepted) will be published as 6-page papers in the Proceedings;

- STANDARD POSTERS: poster presentations, which (if accepted) will be
published as 6-page papers in the Proceedings;

- ABSTRACT POSTERS: poster presentations, which (if accepted) will be
published in the Proceedings as one-page abstracts, but can be
submitted only by members of the Cognitive Science Society. For
information about membership, see

Submissions will be reviewed by an international panel of experts
