             THIRTY-SECOND ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE

                 CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT - CALL FOR PAPERS

   The THIRTY-SECOND ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE will meet in
Teton Village, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, February 4 - 9, 2007.
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, artificial intelligence, and most recently, brain
imaging.  The aim is to provide overview talks that are comprehensible
and interesting to a wide scientific audience --such as one might
fantasize would occur at a National or Royal Academy of Science.

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

There are still several openings for speakers, and submissions are hereby
invited for AIC-32.  The deadline for submissions is November 17, 2006.
In 2007, AIC-32 will feature two special sessions on cortical mechanisms:
neuronal and  computational.  To participate in these sessions, send a
title and abstract to Tania Pasternak
       tania at cvs.rochester.edu    and a copy to   sperling at uci.edu
All other submissions need go only to  sperling at uci.edu    To register,
complete the registration form at the AIC website
       http://www.socsci.uci.edu/HIPLab/AIC/registration.html
and email it or equivalent information directly to  sperling at uci.edu

country ski trails, are all within walking distance.  There are flights
directly to Jackson Hole AP from Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver,
Minneapolis, and Salt Lake City.  From the airport, take a taxi or bus
to the hotel.  Alternatively, Jackson is a five-hour drive from Salt
Lake City.

UCI UPDATE
================================================================================
   THREE FACULTY POSITIONS IN COGNITIVE SCIENCES - Univ. of California, Irvine
   POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP w/George Sperling, UCI
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     UCI is continuing with its plan to approximately double its size
(although California's well-publicized budget problems are slowing the
growth rate).   In line with a University-wide initiative in Cognitive
Brain Imaging, a 4T and a new 3T magnet are now available for fMRI research
studies.  For 2006-2007, the Department of Cognitive Sciences is advertising
two junior and one senior faculty position in broadly defined areas of
Cognitive Sciences/Neuroscience.  For information see
                  http://www.socsci.uci.edu/faculty_openings.php

UCI's expanding graduate program in Cognitive Sciences invites
applications:  See    http://www.cogsci.uci.edu
