Sponsor & exhibitor

The Annual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society is the world’s premiere annual conference for the interdisciplinary study of cognition. Cognitive Science draws on a broad spectrum of disciplines, topics, and methodologies, in addition to the full breadth and diversity of research topics offered by the society’s membership.

Submissions will report on work involving any approach to Cognitive Science, including, but not limited to, anthropology, artificial intelligence, computational cognitive systems, cognitive development, cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, education, evolution of cognition, linguistics, logic, machine learning, network analysis, neural networks, philosophy, and robotics. We expect this meeting to have 800+ attendees in person, and this is a great opportunity to place your products or services in front of this focused audience.
