Awards of the Cognitive Science Conference
The Marr Award, named in honour of the late David Marr, is given annually to the best student paper at the Cognitive Science conference.
The Award is sponsored by The Cognitive Science Society.
A list of previous winners include:
2000- Eliana Colunga
2006-Elizabeth Baraff Bonawitz
2011-Brendan T. Johns
The winners of the 2012 Computational Modeling Prizes are:
Computational Modeling Prize: perception/action
Kevin A. Smith, Sources of uncertainty in intuitive physics
Computational Modeling Prize: language
Noah D. Goodman, Knowledge and implicature: Modeling language understanding as social cognition
Computational Modeling Prize: higher-level cognition
Doug Markant, Does the utility of information influence sampling behavior?

Since 2008, the IES Prize for Excellence in Research on Cognition and Student Learning has been awarded to the best paper presented at Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society related to Cognition, Educational Practice, and Subject Matter learning. The hope is that this award will serve as a mechanism for building capacity for rigorous research at the intersection of Cognitive Science and Educational Practice.
