CogSci 2020 Virtual Meeting

We are pleased to offer the 42nd Annual Virtual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society. The CogSci 2020 Virtual Meeting will adhere to the traditional format, and will feature all planned keynote talks and invited panels (see below for details). In addition, we are delighted to feature the inaugural Elman Symposium to honor this year’s Elman Prize winner Jenny Saffran, the Glushko Symposium featuring this year’s dissertation winners, as well as the Rumelhart keynote by Stanislas Dehaene.

Most importantly, we will be hosting some of the most cutting-edge research in the cognitive sciences contributed by our members. The Virtual Meeting will feature Regular talks (15 minute talk) as well as Posters (5 minute talk accompanying poster). Talks and posters will be streamed in real-time with live Q&A where possible. You will also be able to watch talks on demand for 30 days following the end of the conference.

The real-time streaming of CogSci 2020 are indicated in the table below.  An ‘on-demand’ service, is available to all registered attendees, where video content of the presentations can be viewed at any time, up to 30 days post conference. Please note: the on-demand excludes the Q&A sessions, which are only available during the live broadcasts.
