International Symposium
"Scientific Computing for the Cognitive Sciences"


The methodology Scientific Computing is widely regarded as the third pillar of science, complementary to experiment and theory. While it triggered countless breakthroughs and innovations in technology, engineering, and the natural sciences, a combination with cognitive sciences is yet a rather young field full of opportunities.

The Symposium is meant to bring researchers together and to stimulate interdisciplinary research in the Cognitive Sciences, based on state-of-the-art methods in Scientific Computing. Hence, also reports on work in progress and presentation of challenges and obstacles are explicitely encouraged.

The focus of the symposium is on the modeling, simulation, optimization, and visualization of processes related to the Cognitive Sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

  • measurement and performance in complex problem solving
  • psychological aspects of method-based decision making
  • perception and creation of art works
  • emotional body language (EBL) in dynamic movements
  • artistic expressions in motions
  • perception and action in complex environments
  • learning algorithms for natural and artificial systems
  • numerical cognition
  • function of the brain, e.g., learning and memory
  • ...
