Spatial Cognition 2018: Call for Posters
***News: Workshops, Tutorials, and Symposia Announced***
***Poster submission open***
The Spatial Cognition Conference 2018 (SC 2018) will be held in Tuebingen, Germany, 5-8 September 2018. Spatial Cognition is a transdisciplinary conference that will bring together researchers working on a diverse set of topics using a plethora of methods addressing, for example, biologically inspired systems, spatial learning, communication, interaction, robotics, perception or place. In the finest tradition of fostering transdisciplinary exchange, the conference is organized as a single-track. The final program and the associated proceedings will be the result of a selective review process and will include invited talks as well as oral and poster presentations of refereed submissions. The main conference will be accompanied by one day of workshops and tutorials, poster presentation sessions, as well as a doctoral student session. Every effort is being made to keep conference expenses affordable, particularly for student attendees. Papers presented at the conference will be published Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.
Conference Topics
Papers containing original and unpublished work are solicited in all areas of spatial cognition, including (but not limited to) the following:
* Development of spatial knowledge
* Spatial education and learning
* Aging and spatial performance
