                  Teton Village, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
                          February 2 - 8, 2003
      Organizer:  George Sperling, University of California, Irvine


Teton Village, Jackson, Wyoming, February 2 - 7, 2003.  The conference
covers a wide range of subjects in what has come to be called cognitive
science, ranging from visual and auditory physiology and psychophysics,
to human information processing, cognition, learning and memory, to
computational approaches to these problems including neural networks
and artificial intelligence.
  In 2003, AIC-28 will feature a special concentration on Brain Imaging
and Cortical Physiology:  Randy Blake (randolph.blake at vanderbilt.edu) is
organizing a session on sensory and attentional studies;  Mike Rugg
(m.rugg at ucl.ac.uk) is organizing a brain imaging session on memory and
higher memtal processes, and Tania Pasternak is recruiting speakers on
the Cortical Physiology of Visual Cognition to participate in these and
related sessions.

  Paper submissions are hereby invited. To participate in the special
sessions, send a titles and abstract to the appropriate organizer(s) as
well as a copy to the AIC conference organizer (sperling at uci.edu).  All
other submissions need go only to the organizer.  All participants must
complete the registration form at the AIC website and submit it
(electronically or hard copy) together with the registration fee to

  Information about AIC-28, 2003, as well as the 27 previous programs,
and, new this year *** PHOTOS *** are published on the AIC website


 Ideally the conference offers talks that are comprehensible and
interesting to a wide scientific audience --such as one might fantasy
would occur at a National or Royal Academy of Science--in which speakers
provide overviews of current research areas as well as of their own recent
progress.  Attendance is limited by the size of the conference facility to
about 50 persons.

  The Conference begins with a reception on Sunday evening, February 2,
at 5:00p followed by a half-session.   Regular sessions meet from Monday
through Friday from 4:00p to 8:00p; the rest of the day is free.  On
Friday, 8:00p, there is a banquet for participants and guests.

  To receive future mailings (which will be electronic), provide your
address on the registration form and send it by letter or email.

   FACULTY POSITIONS IN COGNITIVE SCIENCES - University of California, Irvine

    UCI is moving forward (two Nobel Prizes in 1995, a new Chancellor in 1998
--Ralph Cicerone, a distinguished atmospheric chemist and member NAS) with its
plan to approximately double its size in the next decade, and the Department of
Cognitive Sciences is growing.

    Two new faculty appointments were made in 2002: Scott Brown, University
of Newcastle, Australia (mathematical psychology), and Mark Steyvers, Indiana
University (memory and reasoning). For 2002-2003, the Department of Cognitive
Sciences is advertising additional junior faculty positions in broadly defined
areas of Cognitive Sciences although execptional candidates at any level may
be considered. For information see


    There also are openings for postdocs in my lab and elsewhere in the Dept.
