Dear LIST - I was sent this announcement of the Cognitive Science Society's meeting by David Noelle <dnoelle(at)cs.ucsd.edu>, for distribution to the list. DAn. ------- Forwarded Message Date: Thu, 18 Jan 96 12:40:11 -0800 From: dnoelle(at)cs.ucsd.edu (David Noelle) Subject: Cog Sci 96: Final Call For Papers Eighteenth Annual Conference of the COGNITIVE SCIENCE SOCIETY July 12-15, 1996 University of California, San Diego La Jolla, California SECOND (AND FINAL) CALL FOR PAPERS DUE DATE: Thursday, February 1, 1996 CONTACT: cogsci96(at)cs.ucsd.edu EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF CHANGES FROM ORIGINAL CFP After discussion with the advisory board, we decided to go with a three-tiered approach after all. There will be six page papers in the proceedings for both talks and posters. However, even if your paper/poster is not accepted, you will have a chance to submit a one page abstract for publication and poster presentation. Or, you may submit a one-page abstract initially (actually two pages in the submission format) for guaranteed acceptance. This is meant to accommodate the very different cultures of the component disciplines of the Society, while making a minimal change from previous years' formats. Also, this CFP provides a partial list of the program committee, the plenary speakers, a rough schedule for the paper reviewing process, and some keywords to aid in the process of reviewing your paper. INTRODUCTION 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 short abstracts for guaranteed poster presentation at the conference. The conference will feature plenary addresses by invited speakers, invited symposia by leaders in their fields, technical paper sessions, a poster session, 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! PLENARY SESSIONS 1. "Controversies in Cognitive Science: The Case of Language" Stephen Crain (UMD College Park) & Mark Seidenberg (USC) Moderated by Paul Smolensky (Johns Hopkins University) 2. "Tenth Anniversary of the PDP Books" Geoff Hinton (Toronto) Jay McClelland (CMU) Dave Rumelhart (Stanford) 3. "Frontal Lobe Development and Dysfunction in Children: Dissociations between Intention and Action" Adele Diamond (MIT) 4. "Reconstructing Consciousness" Paul Churchland (UCSD) PROGRAM COMMITTEE (a partial list): Garrison W. Cottrell (UCSD) -- Program Chair Farrell Ackerman (UCSD) -- Linguistics Tom Albright (Salk Institute) -- Neuroscience Patricia Churchland (UCSD) -- Philosophy Roy D'Andrade (UCSD) -- Anthropology Charles Elkan (UCSD) -- Computer Science Catherine Harris (Boston U.) -- Psychology Doug Medin (Northwestern) -- Psychology Risto Miikkulainen (U. of Texas, Austin) -- Computer Science Kim Plunkett (Oxford) -- Psychology Martin Sereno (UCSD) -- Neuroscience Tim van Gelder (Indiana U. & U. of Melbourne) -- Philosophy 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 (two pages in double-spaced submission format) 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 be accepted for either oral or poster presentation, and will receive 6 pages in the proceedings in the final, camera-ready format. Papers that are rejected at this stage may be re-submitted (if the author is a Society member) as a one page abstract in the camera-ready format, due at the same date as camera-ready papers. Poster abstracts from non-members will be accepted, but the presenter should join the Society prior to presenting the poster. Papers accepted for oral presentation will be presented at the conference as scheduled talks. Papers accepted for poster presentation and one page abstracts will be presented at a poster session at the conference. All 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, and Word Perfect are available by anonymous FTP from "cs.ucsd.edu" in the "pub/cogsci96/formats" directory. There is a self-explanatory subdirectory hierarchy under that directory for papers and posters. Formatting information is also available via the World Wide Web at the conference web page located at "http://www.cse.ucsd.edu/events/cogsci96/". Submitted abstracts should be two pages in submitted format, with the same margins as full papers. Style files for these are 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 may 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 which will be made available to the authors of accepted papers and abstracts. This year we will again attempt to publish the proceedings in two modalities, paper and a CD-ROM version. Depending on a decision of the Governing Board, we may be switching completely 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. You may use the keywords from the attached list, or you may make up your own. Please try to give a primary discipline (or pair of disciplines) to which the paper is addressed (e.g., Psychology, Philosophy, etc.) 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.
