International Spatial Cognition Summer Institute (ISCSI) 2013

Week 1: Aug 11–17, 2013
Week 2: August 18–25, 2013

Held on the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB)

Following on the success of ISCSI 2003, ISCSI 2013 will present two consecutive week-long events consisting of intensive lectures, tutorials, and student presentations on spatial cognition, the study of spatial perception, thinking, reasoning, and communication by humans, nonhuman animals, and computational entities such as robots. Spatial cognition includes research approaches from several disciplines and subdisciplines of the social and behavioral sciences, life sciences, and information and computer sciences. Like its 2003 predecessor, the 2013 Institute is primarily aimed at graduate students, postdoctoral students, and early-career researchers and academics with a strong interdisciplinary interest in spatial cognition research.

The Institute will present a total of 16 short courses, 8 during each week. The instructors are all leading experts in spatial cognition from a variety of disciplines.
