CogSci 2013 is the 35th annual meeting of the Cognitive Science Society, to be held in Berlin, Germany, Wednesday, July 31 - Saturday, August 3, 2013. We encourage researchers from around the world to submit their best basic and applied work in cognitive science to CogSci 2013, and to attend in order to discuss the latest theories and data from the world's best cognitive science researchers. Submissions are solicited from all areas of cognitive science.

CogSci 2013's theme is "Cooperative Minds: Social Interaction and Group Dynamics." This theme reflects a rapidly growing interest in the Cognitive Science community, namely a move from the study of individual cognition to the social realm. A further topic will be Cognitive Interaction Technologies, a rather new field aiming at a thorough understanding of the processes and functional constituents of cognitive interaction in order to replicate them in technical systems.

This will be the first time that the Society will meet in Germany. Please refer to Travel Info for details about the venue.
