SPATIAL COGNITION 2020/1 (SC 2020/1)
University of Latvia, Riga, Latvia,
August 2- 4, 2021
This conference was originally scheduled for August 2020. We now aim to
hold it in August 2021. It will be a hybrid conference (with some talks in
physical co-presence and some virtual), or entirely virtual if necessary.
Renewed Call for Papers
Spatial Cognition is concerned with the acquisition, development,
representation, organization, and use of knowledge about spatial objects in
real, virtual or hybrid environments and processed by human or artificial
agents. Spatial Cognition includes research from fields such
as cognitive and developmental psychology, linguistics, computer science,
geography, cartography, philosophy, neuroscience, and education. The
conference is single-track, and the final program will be the result of a
selective review process. The program will include oral and poster
presentations of refereed papers, symposia and keynote talks.
