 The Center for Cognitive Science of the State University of New York at
 Buffalo will present a four-week summer institute, July 5-30, 1994.
 This project represents an important innovation in the Cognitive
 Science field; no venture of this type has been attempted before.

 The first three weeks of the Institute will be comprised of courses at
 basic and advanced levels in constituent disciplines of Cognitive
 Science. Courses will be taught by both SUNY Buffalo faculty and
 faculty invited from other institutions. The fourth week will then be
 devoted to workshops and special conferences. Running through the four
 weeks, there will also be a special speaker series of prominent invited
 scholars. The Institute will provide an opportunity for many faculty
 and students to get an introduction to the field of cognitive science
 and to complement courses in their own disciplines at their home
 institutions.

 It is anticipated that participants will include undergraduate and
 graduate students, faculty associates, and researchers from industry
 and government. A special effort will be made to recruit students and
 participants from outside the United States, where systematic courses
 across the range of Cognitive Science disciplines are rarely offered.
 Participants may enroll in the courses for academic credit, if desired.
 Each course will meet for a total of 15 hours over the three weeks and
 will carry 1 semester unit of credit.
