Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary research field that seeks to understand the nature of the human mind and other minds, including artificial minds, with all its implications. The International Symposium on Brain and Cognitive Science (ISBCS) invites research from all the fields that are connected to cognitive science. The individual disciplines include Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Computer Science, Anthropology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Education. Each discipline brings a set of tools, perspectives, and questions to the table. However, the big picture of the mind cannot emerge by studying this multi-layered problem with a single lens. Communication and collaboration are essential for the cognitive scientist. It is under these premises that we initiate ISBCS.
One mission of ISBCS is to be a premier academic meeting of the cognitive science community. Established jointly by Middle East Technical University (ODTU), Bogazici University and Yeditepe University (i.e. by the three universities that offer cognitive science programs in Turkey), ISBCS is going to be held annually to gather researchers and students from leading national and international centers working on all areas of cognitive science. Our aim is to establish a platform where students can learn about recent research in cognitive science, researchers can get together and initiate collaborations, and the participants can receive valuable feedback on their work.
NEWS: Due to the COVID-19 situation across the world, ISBCS2022 will be held virtually (on Zoom) on 29th May 2022. Stay tuned for the updates on our website and on twitter.
