Conference Information

Welcome! This will be the 4th bi-annual meeting of the Society for Complex Systems in Cognitive Science. The society was founded in 2009 at an inaugural meeting immediately following the annual Cognitive Science Society meeting in Amsterdam. The intent was to provide a forum for the growing numbers of researchers who study mind, brain, and behavior from complex/dynamical systems perspectives. The last meeting was co-located in Berlin with Cogsci 2013. It lasted one full day and consisted of a single track of talks with posters during lunch and dinner after the close of the scientific meeting. About 50 people were in attendence.

This year, the meeting will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center on July 21st, one day before the tutorials for Cogsci 2015, also being held at the convention center. The format of the meeting will be similar to last year, except that we are honored to have Professor J. A. Scott Kelso give a keynote lecture (title forthcoming). Professor Kelso is the Glenwood and Martha Creech Chair in Science at Florida Atlantic University, and a pioneer in applying complex and dynamic systems approaches to mind, brain, and behavior. His work on the famous HKB model, and his book entitled Dynamic Patterns: The Self-Organization of Brain and Behavior, have been hugely influential across a wide range of scientific disciplines related to cognitive science.

Cognitive scientists of all kinds are invited to submit a 250-word abstract to present at the meeting. Please email your title, authors and their affiliations, and abstract to by the end of the day MARCH 15th, 2015 (pacific standard time). In your email, please note if you would prefer a talk or poster, or no preference. Also please specify if the presenter will be an undergraduate or graduate student, a postdoc, a faculty member, or another type of researcher. The registration fee will be $25 for students and postdocs, and $50 for faculty and other researchers. Authors will be notified of acceptance or not no later than April 1st, 2015.

The co-organizers look forward to seeing everyone in July!
