iCog5: Interdisciplinary approaches to higher cognitive function


21st - 22nd February 2019, University of Reading (UK)

We are currently finalising the programme. The full programme will be available here ASAP.

The iCog network aims to promote dialogue and collaboration between disciplines by encouraging postgraduate and early career researchers from cognate fields to share their knowledge and skills. The 5th iCog conference has the theme of higher cognitive function, and we encourage abstracts from all disciplines in cognitive science on topics including (but not limited to) moral, causal, counterfactual and hypothetical reasoning and metacognition.
