Dear List - I was sent the encolsed announcement for submission to the list. Although it is not specifically related to hearing, it may be of some interest to list members, so I hope you will forgive me for forwarding it to you all. -- DAn Ellis. ------- Forwarded Message Date: Thu, 2 Nov 95 17:00:47 -0800 From: dnoelle(at)cs.ucsd.edu (David Noelle) Subject: Cognitive Science '96 Eighteenth Annual Conference of the COGNITIVE SCIENCE SOCIETY July 12-15, 1996 University of California, San Diego La Jolla, California CALL FOR PAPERS DUE DATE: Thursday, February 1, 1996 The Annual Cognitive Science Conference began with the La Jolla Conference on Cognitive Science in August of 1979. The organizing committee of the Eighteenth Annual Conference would like to welcome members home to La Jolla. We plan to recapture the pioneering spirit of the original conference, extending our welcome to fields on the expanding frontier of Cognitive Science, including Artificial Life, Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, Evolutionary Psychology, as well as the core areas of Anthropology, Computer Science, Linguistics, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Psychology. As a change this year, we follow the example of Psychonomics and the Neuroscience Conferences and invite Members of the Society to submit one-page abstracts for guaranteed poster presentation at the conference. A second change is that all papers accepted as posters will only get one page in the proceedings. The conference will feature plenary addresses by invited speakers, invited symposia by leaders in their fields, technical paper and a poster sessions, a banquet, and a Blues Party. San Diego is the home of the world-famous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, Sea World, the historic all-wooden Hotel Del Coronado, beautiful beaches, mountain areas and deserts, is a short drive from Mexico, and features a high Cappuccino Index. Bring the whole family and stay a while! GUIDELINES FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS Novel research papers are invited on any topic related to cognition. Members of the Society may submit a one page abstract for poster presentation, which will be automatically accepted for publication in the proceedings. Submitted full-length papers will be evaluated through peer review with respect to several criteria, including originality, quality, and significance of research, relevance to a broad audience of cognitive science researchers, and clarity of presentation. Papers will either be accepted for publication in the proceedings, or (if the author is a Society member) will be accepted as a poster, and a one-page abstract will be published. Such authors will get a chance to flesh out the abstract to a page when submitting their camera ready copy. Poster abstracts from non-members will be accepted, but the presenter should join the Society prior to presenting the poster. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference as talks. Papers may present results from completed research as well as report on current research with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives. Posters may report on recent work to be published elsewhere that has not been previously presented at the conference. Authors should submit five (5) copies of the paper in hard copy form by Thursday, February 1, 1996, to: Dr. Garrison W. Cottrell Computer Science and Engineering 0114 FED EX ONLY: 3250 Applied Physics and Math University of California San Diego La Jolla, Ca. 92093-0114 phone for FED EX: 619-534-5948 (my secretary, Marie Kreider) If confirmation of receipt is desired, please use certified mail or enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope or postcard. DAVID MARR MEMORIAL PRIZES FOR EXCELLENT STUDENT PAPERS Papers with a student first author are eligible to compete for a David Marr Memorial Prize for excellence in research and presentation. The David Marr Prizes are accompanied by a $300.00 honorarium, and are funded by an anonymous donor. LENGTH Papers must be a maximum of eleven (11) pages long (excluding only the cover page but including figures and references), with 1 inch margins on all sides (i.e., the text should be 6.5 inches by 9 inches, including footnotes but excluding page numbers), double-spaced, and in 12-point type. Each page should be numbered (excluding the cover page). Template and style files conforming to these specifications for several text formatting programs, including LaTeX, Framemaker, Word, Word Perfect, and HTML will be available by anonymous FTP after November 15th, 1995. (Check "http://www.cse.ucsd.edu/events/cogsci96/" for details). Submitted abstracts should be one page in length, with the same margins as full papers. Style files for these will be available at the same location as above. Final versions of papers and poster abstracts will be required only after authors are notified of acceptance; accepted papers will be published in a CD-ROM version of the proceedings. Abstracts will be available before the meeting from a WWW server. Final versions must follow the HTML style guidelines referred to above. This year we will continue to publish the proceedings in two modalities, paper and a CD-ROM version. When the procedures for efficient HTML submission stabilize, we will be switching from paper to CD-ROM publication in order to control escalating costs and permit use of search software. [Comments on this change should be directed to "alan(at)lrdc4.lrdc.pitt.edu" (Alan Lesgold, Secretary/Treasurer).] COVER PAGE Each copy of the submitted paper must include a cover page, separate from the body of the paper, which includes: 1. Title of paper. 2. Full names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of all authors. 3. An abstract of no more than 200 words. 4. Three to five keywords in decreasing order of relevance. The keywords will be used in the index for the proceedings. 5. Preference for presentation format: Talk or poster, talk only, poster only. Poster only submissions should follow paper format, but be no more than 2 pages in this format (final poster abstracts will follow the same 2 column format as papers). Accepted papers will be presented as talks. Submitted posters by Society Members will be accepted for poster presentation, but may, at the discretion of the Program Committee, be invited for oral presentation. Non-members may join the Society at the time of submission. 6. A note stating if the paper is eligible to compete for a Marr Prize. DEADLINE Papers must be received by Thursday, February 1, 1996. Papers received after this date will be recycled. CALL FOR SYMPOSIA In addition to technical papers, posters, plenary sessions, and invited symposia, the conference will accept submitted research symposia. Proposals for symposia are invited and should indicate: 1. A brief description of the topic; 2. How the symposium would address a broad cognitive science audience, and some evidence of interest; 3. Names of symposium organizer(s); 4. List of potential speakers, their topics, and some estimate of their likelihood of participation; 5. Proposed symposium format (designed to last 90 minutes). Symposium proposals should be sent as soon as possible, but no later than January 1, 1996. Abstracts of the symposium talks will be included in the proceedings and must be made available in HTML format, as above.
