Computational Modeling Prizes
- The School of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience Groningen
- The Cognitive Science Center Amsterdam
- The Cognitive Science Society
- Netherlands research school for Information and Knowledge Systems
Four prizes worth $1,000 (USD) each will be awarded for the best full paper submissions to the 2009 Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society that involve computational cognitive modeling. The four separate prizes will represent the best modeling work in the respective areas of: perception/action, language, higher-level cognition, and applied cognition. The prizes are open to researchers at any level (student, postdoc, research scientist, faculty) from any nationality. Any form of computational cognitive modeling relevant to cognitive science will be eligible, including (but not limited to) connectionism, symbolic, Bayesian, dynamic systems, or various hybrids.
If your full paper involves computational cognitive modeling, be sure to indicate its eligibility when you submit your paper.
Sponsored by The Cognitive Science Society
The Marr Prize, named in honor of the late David Marr, will be given to the best student paper at the conference. The Marr Prize comes with an honorarium of $1000 (USD).
All student first authors are eligible for the Marr Prize for the best student paper. Authors who graduated within the last 6 months and are no longer students are also eligible if the work being reported was conducted entirely while the first author was a student.
Cognition and Student Learning (CaSL) Prize
Sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences
The Cognition and Student Learning prize will be given to the best full paper submission to the 2009 Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society on a topic directly related to cognitive science, educational practice and subject-matter learning. The CaSL Prize comes with an honorarium of $1000 (USD). Methodology should be rigorous but is not restricted to any particular approach. All full paper submissions are eligible for these awards. The prize is open to researchers at any level (student, postdoc, research scientist, faculty) from any nationality. If your full paper is directly relevant to the topics of educational practice or subject-matter learning, be sure to indicate its eligibility when you submit your paper.
Student Travel Grants
Sponsored by the Robert J. Glushko and Pamela Samuelson Foundation
Up to $10,000 (USD) will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students for travel support to attend the Conference. Any student who is first author on a full-length paper to be presented at the conference is eligible. Awardees will be selected on the basis of need and submission quality, with an effort to achieve a broad representation among academic institutions. Student first authors can indicate whether they want to be considered for the grant as part of the submission process.
After paper acceptance decisions have been made, selected first authors will be contacted by the Conference Awards Chair.
Awardees will be selected by June 2009.
