 ECCS 1999: FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS:

************************************************************************

**** ECCS99: European Conference on Cognitive Science 1999 ****
 Siena (Italy) 27th - 30th October 1999

ECCS is aimed at improving the interaction among European researchers
who work in the domain of Cognitive Science. In particular ECCS'99 is an
opportunity for:

* Having good discussions and exchanging information on interesting
 and advanced topics;
* Improving European CS research;
* Encouraging interdisciplinarity, thus allowing the consideration of a 
 human centred aproach for technology development.

ECCS'99 will also be a good "gym" for the Cognitive Science Conference
to be held in Europe in 2001.

The Conference scope will range from theoretical works to applications
and from the study of experimental methods to computer simulation and
field research.

We decided to organise the conference in workshops focusing on some
specific topics of general multidisciplinary relevance. The tentative
list of workshops includes:

 * Reasoning in action
 * Attention and consciousness
 * Distributed Cognition at work
 * Cognitive Technologies for Education
 * Language and Cognition

In addition there should be:

 * a Panel, on "Success and Failures of Connectionism" and
 * a General discussion on "Cognition and Co-operation"

The Conference will be held at the "Certosa di Pontignano". It is a
wonderful Chartreuse, located 10 km from Siena, where it is possible to
book for a full board accommodation. All the Conference activities will
be held there.
