EuroCogSci07 is jointly organized by the Cognitive Science Society, by the Hellenic Cognitive Science Society and by the National and Capodistrian University of Athens, Graduate Program in Basic and Applied Cognitive Science.

The conference will take place at the European Cultural Center of Delphi, from May 23 to 27, 2007.


EuroCogSci07 is the second regional Cognitive Science Conference that takes place under the auspices of the Cognitive Science Society in Europe. It can be seen as the convergence of two separate traditions of cognitive science meetings. The first of these is the series of biennial meetings known as the European Conference on Cognitive Science (ECCS) that was initiated in 1995 in St. Malo, France, and followed by meetings in Manchester, England (1997) and Siena, Italy (1999). The second is the long tradition of Cognitive Science Society meetings, begun in 1979 and held annually since then. The two traditions came together when, in response to suggestions by cognitive scientists from Europe and elsewhere, the Cognitive Science Society held its first non-North American meeting at the University of Edinburgh in 2001. The success of this meeting reflected the greater internationalization of the field and prompted European researchers to propose that the Cognitive Science Society sponsor a series of regional European conferences, taking the place of the ECCS. The first European Cognitive Science Conference under the auspices of the Cognitive Science Society took place in Osnabruck in September 2003, and the second will take place in Delphi, Greece in May 2007.


The European Cognitive Science Conference is a milestone in the development of the interdisciplinary field of Cognitive Science in Europe. It builds on a history of scientific exchanges among European researchers and cognitive scientists from around the world, while itself starting a new tradition of closer cooperation


The purpose of the conference is the presentation of empirical, theoretical, and analytical work from all areas of interest in cognitive science, such as artificial intelligence, education, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, psychology and anthropology.


The focus of the conference is on interdisciplinary work that is either of interest for more than one of the mentioned research areas or integrates research methods from different fields. Furthermore, applications of cognitive science research in such domains as human-computer interaction, education, knowledge management, or engineering are equally welcome.
