research presented by leading scientists. In 2006, 2007 and 2008, topics
included: Psychocomputational models of language acquisition; How language
affects thought; Integrating human and machine vision; Complex systems and the
cognitive sciences; Cognitive science of games and gameplay; Cultural impacts on
cognition ; Statistical learning in language, vision, and comparative cognition;
Situated and embodied cognition; Building and evaluating models of human-level
intelligence; and many more. Tutorial sessions have included: Computational
models of spoken language processing, Embodied cognition and robotics,
Cognitive science in the design of graphical images and interfaces,
Computational cognitive neuroscience modeling using LEABRA in pdp++, Bayesian
models of inductive learning, ACT-R, SOAR, Quantum information processing
theory, and many more; and plenary speakers in the last three years have
included John Anderson, Jeff Elman, Walter Kintsch, Jay McClelland, John Laird,
David Plaut, Shimon Ullman, and other scientists whose work spans cognition,
