 Fifteenth Annual Meeting of the


 June 18 - 21, 1993
 University of Colorado at Boulder
 Call for Participation
 with Revised Deadlines

This year's conference aims at broad coverage of the many and diverse
methodologies and topics that comprise Cognitive Science. In addition
to computer modeling, the meeting will feature research in computational,
theoretical, and psycho-linguistics; cognitive neuroscience; conceptual
change and education; artificial intelligence; philosophical foundations;
human-computer interaction and a number of other approaches to the
study of cognition.

A plenary session honoring the memory of Allen Newell is scheduled.

Plenary addresses will be given by:

 Alan Baddeley Andy DiSessa Paul Smolensky
 Sandra Thompson Bonnie Webber

The conference will also highlight invited research papers:

 Conceptual Change: (Organizers: Nancy Songer & Walter Kintsch)
 Frank Keil Gaea Leinhardt Ashwin Ram Jeremy Rochelle

 Language Learning: (Organizers: Paul Smolensky & Walter Kintsch)
 Michael Brent Robert Frank Brian MacWhinney

 Situated Action: (Organizer: James Martin)
 Leslie Kaebling Pattie Maes Bonnie Nardi Alonso Vera

 Visual Perception & Cognitive Neuroscience: (Organizer: Michael Mozer)
 Marlene Behrmann Robert Jacobs Hal Pashler David Plaut

 With the goal of assembling a high-quality program representative of the
 diversity of methods and topics in cognitive science, we invite papers
 presenting interdisciplinary research addressing any cognitive domain and
 using any of the diverse methodologies of the field. Papers are specifically

 solicited which address the topics of the invited research sessions listed

 Authors should submit five (5) copies of the paper in hard copy form to:
