Cognitive Science research is an indispensable part of IRIS. The International Symposium on Brain and Cognitive Science (ISBCS) will bring together researchers in cognitive science and relevant fields, including Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Computer Science, Anthropology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Education.
This year’s symposium has two keynote speakers: Margaret Boden (University of Sussex), Mark Steedman (University of Edinburgh). Four invited speakers have been confirmed: Aylin Küntay (Koc University), Daniela Schulz (Yeditepe University), Seyhun Topbas (Anadolu University), Bonnie Webber (University of Edinburgh).
The symposium will be held on April 19, 2015 at the Middle East Technical University, Culture & Congress Center (KKM), Ankara, Turkey.

ISBCS invites research from all the fields which involve the common goal of cognitive science research: understanding the nature of the human mind and other minds including artificial minds. All submissions related to disciplines comprising the field of Cognitive Science will be considered, including Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Computer Science, Anthropology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Education.
Papers can be short/long conference papers and/or abstracts. If accepted, we expect at least one author to present the poster at the symposium. The papers may be submitted to/accepted by other conferences; we do not publish proceedings or require copyright. We will put together a booklet (or e-booklet) of abstracts. ISBCS is a great opportunity to get feedback before you present in a conference, or discuss research before its final result/publication. Graduate students and undergraduates of research lore are encouraged to present their thesis topics in the form of an abstract.
