Abstract submission for talks and posters opens November 30, 2011. The deadline for abstract submission is March 1, 2012. Authors will be notified whether their abstract has been accepted as a poster or as a talk by April 1st, 2012.

Where to submit?

Abstracts may be submitted at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/MWCOGSCI2012/

Who can submit?

Research abstracts may be submitted by undergraduate/graduate students and faculty in cognitive science and related disciplines, such as psychology, linguistics, informatics and artificial intelligence.  Any one person may present only one paper, but may also be a co-author of other papers.

What to submit?

Abstracts can relate to research or theory within any domain of cognitive science, including but not limited to: Animal Cognition, Artificial Intelligence, Attention, Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, Categorization, Cognitive Development, Cognitive Psychology, Computational and Mathematical Models of Cognition, Dynamical Systems, Ethology, Evolution of Cognition, Judgement and Decision Making, Learning Sciences, Language and Linguistics, Machine Learning and Intelligence, Memory, Methodology, Robotics, Social Cognition and Philosophy of Mind.  Example abstracts can be found in last year’s program.

Acceptance Policy

Papers will be accepted on the basis of their quality and suitability for the conference. We hope to accommodate all participants who wish to present. Please note that because we have only a limited number of slots for spoken presentations, authors who request a spoken presentation preference may be changed to a poster format (you will be notified). The "prestige" of posters and spoken presentations is equal in MW CogSci; spoken sessions are based on the clusters of related topics in the submissions.
