Call for abstracts + Rumelhart Memorial Travel Awards
*** NEW!!! Rumelhart Memorial Travel Awards for the best students submissions!!! (see details below) ***
We cordially invite you to participate in the 13th Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop (NCPW13) to be held in San Sebastian (Spain) from July 12-14, 2012.
This well-established and lively workshop aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplines such as artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, neurobiology, philosophy and psychology to discuss their work on models of cognitive processes. Previous themes have encompassed categorisation, language, memory, development, action. There will be no specific theme, but papers must be about emergent models -- frequently, but not necessarily -- of the connectionist/neural network kind, applied to cognition. These workshops have always been characterised by their limited size, high quality papers, the absence of parallel talk sessions, and a schedule that is explicitly designed to encourage interaction among the researchers present in an informal setting.
Furthermore, this workshop will feature a unique set of invited speakers:
- Mark Seidenberg. University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
- Jeffrey Elman. University of California, San Diego. USA.
- Randall C. O'Reilly. University of Colorado. USA.
- Kim Plunkett. University of Oxford, UK.
Important dates to remember:
Abstract deadline: March 31st, 2012
Notification of abstract acceptance: May 1st, 2012
Early registration deadline: June 1st, 2012
Online registration deadline: July 1st, 2012

The Rumelhart Memorial Travel awards, generously funded by Professor Jay McClelland, will provide funding to support travel costs for students presenting at the conference. Awards of US$250 are available to students from Western European countries, and US$750 for students from elsewhere.
Looking forward to your participation!
