We are pleased to announce that the 6th International Conference of Cogntive Science (ICCS 2008) will be held back in Korea from July 27th through 29th, 2008, eleven years after its first meeting in Korea. Following the previous conferences held in Korea (1997), Japan (1999), China (2001), Australia (2003) and Canada (2006), ICCS2008 aims at being a forum for international researchers to present their works in the area of, or related to, cognitive science.

We solicit interested researchers to submit works pursuing a scientific understanding of the mind through all available methodologies, notably those of aesthetics, anthropology, artificial intelligence, computer science, education, linguistics, learning sciences, logic, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology, or any other disciplines in-so-far as it is deemed of interest to those who pursue the studly of the structure of the mind, through any other newly developing methodologies that are most appropriate to promote cognitive science. Any suggestions or plans for workshops or special meetings that will form part of ICCS2008 should be addressed to the chairman of the program committee as soon as possible.
