EBICC - 2015 - International Brazilian Meeting on Cognitive Science
The EBICC is an international meeting that has taken place in Brazil since its inception, in 1995. Organized by the Brazilian Society of Cognitive Science, the event is interdisciplinary in nature and brings together researchers in the fields of Cognitive Science and Philosophy of Mind. The EBICC acronym is made up of the initials of the Portuguese words used to name it: Encontro Brasileiro Internacional de Ciência Cognitiva (in English: International Brazilian Meeting on Cognitive Science).
The 10th EBICC will take place during 7 - 11 December 2015, at the Polytechnic School of Engineering of the University of São Paulo, situated in one the world's largest cities. The city of São Paulo has an intense multicultural life, a cosmopolitan ambience, and since its founding has gladly welcomed immigrants from all corners of the world.
The meeting has a workshop style, including keynote conferences and roundtables for debates with experts. Its daily communication sessions feature the oral presentations of complete works selected by reviewers from the scientific committee. Posters about works in progress and speculative ideas are also welcome, and are presented in special sessions. See the CALL FOR WORKS on the "informations for authors" page, with instructions for preparation and submission, as well as the deadlines and IMPORTANT DATES.

The central theme of the meeting is:

  • Situated and Embodied Cognition: Information and Autonomous Action

The theme focuses on the situated and embodied view of cognition. However, alternative views are considered for work submissions and will be treated in the conferences and discussions.

The main sub-theme is Information and Autonomous Action. This considers questions concerning the informational coupling between the cognitive agent and the environment.

Around the central theme there are several sub-themes targeted by the event:
• Information, mind, and cognition.
• Information, structure, and cognition.
• Logic, information, and intelligence.
• Semiotics and cognition.
• Language, communication, and cognition.
• Perception, action, and attention.
• Art, emotion, neuromodulation, and cognition.
• Evolution of the concepts of cognition, mind, and brain.
• Computational and cognitive modeling.
• Machine learning, neuromathematics, and cognition.
• Cognitive architectures.
• Cognition, technology, and action.
• Agents and cognitive games and their educational, and socio-cultural roles.
• Ubiquitous computing and its relations with cognition and society.
