Meeting Description:

The 6th International Conference of Cognitive Science (ICCS 2008) will be held back in Korea from July 27th through 29th, 2008, eleven years after its first meeting in Korea. It aims at being a forum for international researchers to present their works in the area of, or related to, cognitive science, following the previous conferences held in Korea (1997), Japan (1999), China (2001), Australia (2003) and Canada (2006 - in conjunction with the Cognitive Science Society Meeting).

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 insofar as it is deemed to be of interest to those who pursue the study 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.

Plenary Speakers:

David Chalmers (ANU): Extending the Mind into the World
Gary Libben (U of Alberta): On the Issue of Mental Lexicon
James Pustejovsky (Brandeis): Co-composition and Argument Selection
Jean Aitchison (Oxford): Chimps, Children, and Language Origin: are there any Links?
Susan Fischer (UCSD): Getting in the Way: Sign Language Processing under Adverse Conditions

Bong-Kiun Kaang (SNU): How Stable is Long-Term Memory?

(In addition, a Japanese cognitive neuroscientist in contact.)

Workshop proposals: March 27, 2008 (the sooner the better - with the organizer's name, title and tentative number of presenters and at least a few representative prospective presenters). One workshop on quantification has been proposed by a group of Japanese linguists including Kei Yoshimoto (, Tohoku) together with scholars from other countries, another one on cognitive neuro-science is just under construction by an American team including Daeyeol Lee (, Yale), another one on literacy development in Asian languages by Jeung-Reul Cho and Catherine McBride-Chang (, Hong Kong), another one on neuro-imaging in Asian languages by Li-Hai Tan (, Hong Kong), and still another one on language, culture and cognition by Debi Roberson (, UK) are being organized.

Paper and poster abstracts: March 27, 2008 (2-page, 12-point, single-spaced Word and PDF default margins, including crucial data and selected references, anonymously) with separate Author Info page, specifying:
1. title,
2. authors,
3. affiliation (faculty, postdoc, or student),
4. e-mail address and phone number,
5. oral paper only, poster possible, poster only, or participant abstract (1-2 pages).

Related Sister Events:
Two closely related huge international conferences will be held immediately before and after ICCS 2008, all in Seoul: The 18th International Congress of Linguists (CIL 18, July 21-26, 2008, Korea U) and the 22nd World Congress of Philosophy (WCP, July 30-Aug. 5, 2008, Seoul Nat'l U). Cross-participation in the rare academic Olympics is highly recommended for intellectuals of high caliber.

ICCS6 is hosted by The Korean Society for Cognitive Science (KSCS) in association with ICCS Steering Committee and sponsored by the Center for Cognitive Science of Yonsei University, BK Projects of Yonsei University (Psychology and Cognitive Science, Computer Science), Institute for Cognitive Science of Seoul National University, Korean Psychological Association, Cognitive Neuroscience Research Program (of Korea Ministry of Science and Technology), CIL18, and KRF/KOSEF.
