KogWis 2018: 14th Biannual Conference of the German Cognitive Science 
Centre for Cognitive Science, Technische Universität Darmstadt
S1|05: Hörsaal 122, Maschinenhaus, Magdalenenstraße 12
Darmstadt, Germany, September 3-6, 2018

****** By popular demand, the submission deadline for abstracts has been 
extended to May 1st. ***** **
******* Also, please note the call for Tutorials and Symposia at the end 
of this mail. ***** **
******* GK Best Paper award, GK Best Poster awards, and Student Travel 
awards announced. ***** *

*Call for Presentations and Posters*
We call for extended abstracts for oral presentations and for posters. 
Submissions should be written in English, and be formatted according to 
the formatting guidelines below. Contributions must be submitted by May 
1st 2018 via the EasyChair submission webpage:

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the review 
committee. Acceptance will be based on novelty of research, significance 
of results, and quality of presentation. Accepted abstracts will be 
published in the online conference proceedings. All accepted 
contributions must be presented at the conference. So at least one 
author must register by the early registration deadline or the 
contribution will not be included in the program.
The best submissions to KogWis 2018 will be selected for oral 
presentation at the conference.

*Call for Symposia*
Submission is now open for proposals for symposia to be presented at 
KOGWIS2018. The deadline for submitting a symposium proposals is May 
11th, 2018. A symposium should involve several presenters, typically 
4-5, organized around a topic of interest. Symposia may be on any topic 
in cognitive science. The KOGWIS program committee will strive for 
quality, variety, innovation, and diversity of the program; special 
emphasis will be put on this year's topic: computational approaches to 
cognitive science.
Please submit proposals for a symposium directly as a single abstract 
for the symposium topic. On the second page of the abstract, please list 
the speakers who will be participating in the symposium and the title of 
their contributions.
Send the the two page abstract via e-mail with the subject "Symposium 
proposal" directly to:
kogwis2018 at cogsci.tu-darmstadt.de

*Call for Tutorials*
We invite proposals for tutorials to be held at KOGWIS2018. The KOGWIS 
program committee is interested in tutorials that disseminate 
information to conference attendees on recently emerging topics and 
trends as well as foundation topics, provide surveys of complementary 
techniques to those commonly studied in cognitive science, and inform 
attendees on the state-of-the-art within the field. We encourage 
submissions of proposals on topics in the general areas of cognitive 
science but particularly encourage tutorials on computational approaches 
to cognitive science.
Please submit proposals for a tutorial directly as one abstract for the 
tutorial topic according to the same guidelines as regular abstracts via 
e-mail with the subject "Tutorial proposal" directly to:
kogwis2018 at cogsci.tu-darmstadt.de

*GK Best Paper Award (2016-2018)*
The GK Best Paper Award is awarded for the best publication in cognitive 
science by a young investigator whose PhD has been awarded within the 
last three years or who is still earning a PhD. Applications are 
accepted for peer reviewed papers, which have been accepted for 
publication or have been published since May 2016.
Applications should be submitted by June 1st 2018 via e-mail to the head 
of the GK (vs1 at gk-ev.de)  and include a single PDF document with:
- the published paper,

*GK Best Poster & Presentation Award*
Each paper accepted for publication at KogWis 2018 will be eligible for 
the KogWis 2018 Best Paper Award. There will be three awards in total: 
1st place 250 €, 2nd place 150 €, 3rd place 100 €.

*GK Student travel award*
The GK society sponsors four student travel grants for student members 
of the GK to attend KogWis. Students need to be or become a member of 
the GK to be eligible. The travel to KogWis 2018 will be supported by an 
amount of 250€. Selection Criteria are: involvement at the conference 
(paper or poster contribution) & application date. Please send your

"KogWis Student Travel Grant Application".

KogWis 2018 will be held in Darmstadt, Germany, and invites submissions 
of extended abstracts on current work in cognitive science. Generally 
all topics related to cognitive science are welcome. Contributions that 
address the focus of this meeting, that is, computational cognitive 
science are particularly encouraged. Computational approaches to 
cognitive science emphasize formalizing adaptive and intelligent 
behavior and have strong ties to machine learning and artificial
