iCog5: Interdisciplinary approaches to higher cognitive function

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

Aims of the conference

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 received abstracts from many disciplines in cognitive science on topics including (but not limited to) moral, causal, counterfactual and hypothetical reasoning and metacognition.
