Cognitive Science (ASCS). The main activity of the society has been the
organization of conferences. The society now aims to run regular
conferences every second year with an eye to becoming the peak body for the
interdisciplinary study of the mind in Australasia.
The first major event for the reformed society will be a conference held at
the brand new Port Macquarie (yes we have an airport, along with our
beaches and rainforest) campus of Charles Sturt University on the *7th and
8th of December 2017*. Max Coltheart (Macquarie) will keynote the event.
This event will include a general meeting of the society to endorse a new

secretary, treasurer, student representative and communications officer. We

next conference in 2019.
Much more information about the conference will be forthcoming in the next
