Affective minds : the cognitive science of emotions and affects
Young researchers conference in cognitive science
Montréal, June 21st and 22nd2017
How long are the talks?
30 minutes + 10-15 minutes of questions.
Can I submit more then one abstract?
No. Just send us the one you think is the most appropriate.
I just want to attend the conference, should I register or pay?
No. Access to the conference is both open and free.
I'd like to give a talk at Cognitio. Should I send you a complete paper?
No. Just a 600 word abstract.
How will you select abstracts?
An interdisciplinary scientific committee will read and evaluate the abstracts. The criteria of selection will be:
- quality of presented research;
- comprehensibility of the theoretical or practical stakes;
- relevance for the field of cognitive science.
Will abstracts be blind reviewed?
What do you mean precisely by “cognitive science”?
“Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, linguistics, and anthropology.”(Thagard, Paul, « Cognitive Science », The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (Winter 2004 Edition), Edward N. Zalta (ed.)
) [Note: Pr. Luc-Alain Giraldeau suggests adding biology
to this list.]
Can I gave a talk on a subject about wich I have already sent a submission to a journal or published an article?
Is the conference exclusively for students?
No. Speakers are mostly students but the audience is anyone interested.
What do you mean exactly by “young researchers”?
We mean “young” as researchers, age notwithstanding. It's mostly grad students, but we also get young profs once in a while.
Can I give a conference that's been co-authored with a prof?
Yes. We do expect, though, that a “young researcher ” (see previous question) will be the main speaker.
What's the language of the conference?
English. We do try to keep a significant place for French, though, as it is the official language of Quebec.
