California Cognitive Science Conference 2017: Mistakes
Sat, April 29, 2017, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM PDT
The CCSC is an annual all-day symposium bringing together hundreds of students, researchers, and members of the general public from around the world who are passionate about the interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Science. We feature talks given by prominent scientists and thinkers from a wide variety of disciplines. Our acclaimed poster session provides undergraduates with the opportunity to present their own original research alongside graduate students and professional researchers.
The California Cognitive Science Conference at UC Berkeley will bring together students, faculty and researchers from all over the world for a day of featured talks and research presentations. It will provide attendees with a chance to learn from and interact with researchers that have made ground-breaking contributions to the interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Science.
The theme for our annual conference is Mistakes: The Imperfect Mind, and we will be exploring this exciting topic through an interdisciplinary lens. The conference provides attendees with a glimpse into the latest research in all the fields that comprise Cognitive Science, including but not limited to Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science/Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Philosophy, and the Social Sciences.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
Poster Presenters - Call for Abstracts
CSSA cordially invites you to submit an abstract to be considered for a poster presentation at the conference. The California Cognitive Science Conference features a great opportunity for researchers (especially undergraduates) to present original research from any field of study in Cognitive Science. During the poster session, presenters will have the opportunity to mingle with and get feedback from world-renowned scientists.
Submitted abstracts will be evaluated based on interest and appeal to an international audience; scientific and professional merit; contribution to knowledge, practices, and policies; and clarity of the abstract.
You will be notified about the status of your submission by email no later than April 11th. All presenters at the conference are required to register for the conference and pay the presenter registration fee of $17. If and only if your abstract is accepted, please register as a "Poster Presenter," otherwise, please register as "Student" or "General Admission."
